One of our regular stall holders Simply Christene offers just that.
Unique, individual and quirky really sums up Simply Christene’s head designer, Christene, pattern maker and machinists approach to design. Yes, Simply Christene is a one women show.
“Simplicity is the key. I love to use tailored lines to flatter, accentuate and fit curvy figures not hide. My love of colour is often not subtle at all. I enjoy using pattern, distinctive colours and contrasts in many of my designs.” Simply Christene creates pieces that shine because of their simple, elegant line and fall of fabric. This season is a combination of eclectic pieces for the many hats we wear in the many roles we fill
Winter! Like a banana or to quote Shrek an Onion.
Layers, lots of gorgeous layers to peel away or add, boots, scarfs, gloves, warm and delicious colours to frighten away the winter blues!
Clothes, Always a bit of a conundrum. This year the important question asked was; “What would I like to wear?” and for Christene its about mixing it up. Pieces that are just as easy to wear day to day or to dress up for any occasion. The resulting collection is a mix of shirts, tops, tunics and dresses all cut to flatter, for comfort, versatility and a bit of fun using a variety of fabric, all natural perfect for the coming season.
And Colour. Winter is a time to bring out those stronger hues, fiery reds, burning golds, earthy terracottas and comforting greens and naturals.
Each piece is Handcrafted and offers either a distinctive one off item or one of three or four
“My biggest pleasure is working one on one with people, experiencing there excitement, anticipation and joy of having a garment fashioned just for them.”
