SPLASH OF GOLD

July 15, 2018

Just 6 days to go until the big Mustique 50th celebration party.  'A Splash of Gold' is the dress code, and we have yet to finish making our costumes! 

Embellishing a Pink House Mustique collarless shirt with gold braid.Looking for inspiration I came across Colin Tennant's 50th birthday party celebrated here on Mustique.  Gold was the theme and wow did they dress up! Amazing costumes, head-dresses and decorations.  I remember Colin telling me he had all the seamstresses in St. Vincent making costumes for the big event.

And more recently, costumes from Mustique's New Year's Eve party in 2016 - "Carnival"

 I wonder what costumes will be in store for us on Saturday 21st July 2018 ?

PORCELAIN

A fine bone china dinner service has long been on my wish list of things to design so it gives me the greatest of pleasure to finally see it in production.  Inspired by the palm fringed shores of Mustique I chose 'Coconuts & Palms' as my theme and the debut couldn't have been more appropriate, the occasion being Mustique's 50th Anniversary, celebrated with a tented, candlelit dinner for 400 under the palm trees along Dolly Beach on Mustique of course.
