Welcome to our 17th issue!
Here we are again to inspire you with stories of love and wonderful ways to celebrate your own. This issue, we have been excited to work with Karen Walker and to learn about her entry into the world of weddings with the launch of Karen Walker Atelier, a collection of gowns, suits and jewels with integrity and heart behind them. Karen tends to move with purpose and commit fully to whatever she takes on, which helps to explain her ongoing international success. This new collection is one example of that tenacity, but her own marriage — now in its third decade — is another. As she explains (from page 36), “you’re not going to be the same person on day one as you are at the end of 50. You’re changing all the time, your partner’s changing all the time, and your needs and wants and desires and your purpose in life is changing…So you have
to keep working at it.”
We were similarly inspired by Liam and Steve who together run Deadly Ponies and D LY P,
and who are in the twilight of their engagement. They have found ways to communicate their needs that work for them and in a few short months, will be doing this as a married couple.
We also had some fun collaborating with our friends at Chaos & Harmony on our ultimate shoe for weddings. The Together shoe has been designed with weddings and parties in mind, but is also pared back and fashion-focused enough to elevate your daywear if you don’t have a wedding on the horizon.
We also explore what’s behind the success of Hera Couture and Daisy Brides. Founders Katie Yeung and husband Cliff have worked hard and followed their instincts to create something special and we have loved seeing them grow and flourish. And the men behind Working Style take us through the journey of a custom suit and explain why this experience is so transformative.
Of course, we also give you the usual dose of real weddings, occasion fashion and beauty, travel and all the extra considerations that make celebrating love that little bit more easy and stylish.
With Love TJ x
