Yorkshire Kimono – Fashion City York

I hope you had a lovely Easter and you’re enjoying the Spring sunshine we’ve been getting lately.  I have some exciting news to share with you about a wonderful project I collaborated on recently.  You may remember a little while ago that I shared a sneaky peek of a fabric design I was working on which featured Whippets and Roses?  Well I can finally reveal the finished design and a mock-up of the Yorkshire Kimono!

The Kimono by the lovely Smith and Downes is going to be launched at this weekends Fashion City York event and I can’t wait to see the finished garment and fabric!  Here’s a peek at the main fabric design, inspired by all things Yorkshire, that I created which features elegant Whippets (most of you know how much I love my sighthounds!) and my take on the pretty Yorkshire Rose.

I also created a pretty ditsy floral print for the trim on the Kimono.

The Kimonos will be available to purchase very soon directly through Smith and Downes and also in my own Etsy Shop but I’ll keep you posted when they are available.  In the meantime, if you are local, then why not pop down to the City Screen in York this weekend and take a peek at the Kimono? I’d love to know what you think 🙂
