    The Inspiration

    "The Bonnie is an ode to one of the classiest ladies I know.

    Stemming from my love of the 60’s and 70’s, this classic shape reminds me of the determined, but innocent, freedom that sparked a modern revolution.

    I wanted something eye catching that had both a modern and retro appeal. I was immediately drawn to this black and white print. Its pattern naturally compliments the shape and movement of the dress, giving it a dynamic look and feel.

    It’s not just about what a dress looks like but how amazing you feel once you put it on. My goal was to create something to make you want dance like no one is looking or strut confidently down your own concrete runway. For me, the Bonnie does that. I can see myself wearing this for years to come, regardless of the season and I hope you love it as much as I do."
