Things go better with Kokka
The garden at House For An Art Lover has become our go-to place in Glasgow for my photoshoots. It is just so colourful there and seemed like the ideal place to complement my latest dress project.
Inspired by folk art, the red and turquoise dress is made out of Retro 60s Flower Border Red fabric from Kokka and supplied by Frumble Fabrics. The medium weight quilting fabric is imported from Japan and is 100% cotton.
I love matching combinations, so I made an accompanying clasp-frame purse of fabric leftovers and some shiny red PVC using a pattern from the Czech Republic magazine Marina Quilt. It’s a bit like a more colourful sporran in the shape of a ladybird with wings.
Both are decorated with a trim of red giant pompoms from Paper and String.
The red statement necklace is called In Bloom from Naturally Ecuador, who make Ecuadorian Tagua jewellery - a veggie-friendly alternative to ivory.
If you have read my blogs previously, you might recognise the red La Regina della Vulva hat.
If you've got a sharp eye, you might have noticed I wore two different styles of shoes.
For a more casual look, I changed into a pair of my latest vegan-friendly shoe finds. Chocolaticas Carrousel by Hot Chocolate Design comes from the Ukinkalla shop. They perfectly match the dress and are super comfy. I will definitely wear them a lot and treat myself (or I should say, my feet) with the new design soon.
