My friend Irma is a fantastic dressmaker specialising in all things vintage, and particularly Twenties and Thirties. Her latest dress collection is inspired by early Thirties bow dresses, needless to say that the combination of dress + bow is particularly hard to resist for me.

The four dresses in her collection – Edith, Lila, Phyllis and Vivian – are all very Art Deco in terms of styling but each pays homage to different elements of early Thirties styles from the cotton day dress (The Lila), to butterfly sleeves (The Edith), geometric panelling (The Phyllis) and structured shoulders (The Vivian).

Each dress is completely unique and a one-off. Prices start at £245. Other sizes and custom-made versions available on request.
