As the roadmap out of lockdown was announced, and the vaccination programme was getting rapidly underway, we started to work on a new collection for early Summer. One of the mantras we very much wanted to create was around change – accepting it; embracing it; even seeing it as a positive opportunity for a new start.

Part of our Summer 2021 collection, we started working on this design as the roadmap out of lockdown was announced, and the vaccination programme was getting underway. One of the key themes that has become apparent from the global pandemic has been a desire to not miss out on life, or waste time. We have all learnt, more powerfully than ever, that one never knows what is around the corner. One of the many heart-breaking things about the thousands of premature deaths due to the pandemic has been the sense of lost potential, and lives cut short with so many things not yet done.

A cry from the heart, to use our imaginations, our spirits and our souls, to lift us out of the daily routine, to see a vision of how we would like our lives to be.

I was working nights as a journalist and had a lot of free time by myself during the day. One morning, I went to my local gym in Highbury and Islington, gave the Hatha yoga class a go, and from then on I was hooked, going 2-3 times a week.

This month, we are talking about dreams. Specifically, identifying what you would be doing, and how your life would look, if you were being true to your dreams, and living the life you imagined you would have. Sometimes, this just doesn't seem possible.

Michelle, or FLOTUS (which I discovered today stands for First Lady of the United States!) has been in the spotlight since Barack took to the White House over 7 years ago.  She entered our lives as the First Lady, but has carved her own path like no other, one of integrity, courage, authenticity and determination. We felt such an inspirational lady needed her own set of mantras, so here are ours inspired by FLOTUS…Hard work brings sweet rewards      &nbs...
