Charlie Chaplin

I was flicking through last weeks issue of Look Magazine when a picture of a beautiful dress featuring a novel Charlie Chaplin print immediately grabbed my attention. I went online to find out more about the obviously amazing Designer. London born Emma Louise is a womenswear designer specialising in unique prints; she has previously worked with Olivia Rubin (another Designer with a passion for amazing prints) & was part of the legendary Alexander McQueen design team.

The Chaplin dress that I had fallen in love with was part of her A/W11 collection which Emma says "relishes in 1930s culture". It is inspired by icons such as Norma Shearer & blends feminine sensuality with masculine tailoring. Emma's fabulous collections feature beautiful shift dresses, tops & shirts in loose, sexy silhouettes, beautiful colours & exquisite prints.

The Chaplin dress is a fresh take on the classic shift dress; made from luxurious crepe de chine in the palest gold, it features red silhouettes of iconic silent movie star Charlie Chaplin. It simply slips on & can be dressed up with heels and a cute clutch or dressed down with transeasonal ankle boots.

It's my first piece from Emma Louise London but it's fair to say it won't be my last! Emma's unique collections are available to buy online at Little Black Dress and her amazing A/W12 collection will be dropping there at the end of the month; I already have my eye on the fabulous Elephant Skin shift dress (please keep one for me Emma!!).
