Sense & Eccentricity, WILDFOX Fall 2014

Hey Everyone! I'm back from Miami swim week and couldn't be more excited to post our FALL 14 campaign!!! This was so crazy to shoot out in the freezing snow and right after a storm. I am so excited for fall to come again this year, cozy nights playing board games and drinking hot chocolate...

This collection is very much inspired by Jane Austen and my English heritage. I loved growing up in West Sussex, even today I love to be in a place where you can really feel the seasons change. Jane Austen wrote love stories around seasons, she was one of the first young women to become famous for her beautiful, romantic novels about coming of age and trying to find your place in the world. She is one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

In my eyes Jane was the ultimate Wildfox girl; Hard working, poetic, confidant and extremely comical... and  it makes me sad she couldn't be alive today so I could have her over for dinner and a sleep over with all the girls.

Her stories are inspiring and still so relevant, they teach us about ourselves, our friendships, family, priorities and sacrifice. Growing up with an older sister I really looked up to her, she was my ultimate inspiration,  my eccentric, funny, drinking, laughing, hard working, incredibly cool role model. She gave me so many of the building blocks to become confidant and independent, to make comedy even in the hardest of times. She lives in England, in Brighton, a city by the sea, and I rarely get to see her so It's a bittersweet relationship that I think about often.

Siblings, whether they are blood or self made, are such an important part of growing up, of who you are and who you become.

Thus this collection is a dedication to the women who love us most, hate us most, forgive us most, to the women who make us laugh and cry, who give us that reality dose straight to the face, who keep us in line but also teach us to miss-behave... this collection is for them, for our sisters and for the ultimate sister,

Royal Romance, WILDFOX summer 2014

I'm so excited to share our summer romance collection with you, it means so much to me!

This last year has been really crazy for me when it comes to love... I got the love of my life back and felt swept away by happiness! It made me truly understand love better and I wanted to dedicate a collection to how I felt for him. He is going through a hard medical condition and my girlfriends were immediately there for us in ways I couldn't have imagined. It made me see that true love really comes in 3 forms, family friendship and romance, even the family you make for yourself... we need all equally! I felt certain revelations from going through such intense issues, and for the first time I understood marriage and what it meant to commit yourself to love, I understood children and what it meant to start a family, I think I began to see love in a real way outside of the fairy tale, and what it meant in life. I found it fascinating to think about the fairy tale romance that I have all my life believed in, and I was sort of sad to let it go. For me this collection is a love letter to my imagination and how I have to remember to use it even when things get hard.

For the inspiration this season I really felt a connection to the 60's and royalty, I thought of a princess trapped and forced into marriage, but who was secretly in love with a soldier, maybe she elopes with him in the end. I liked how she was sad, but also so alive! She relied on her friends and sisters to make it through things, and no matter how rich with material goods, it would still be a struggle to find happiness in herself.
