Dahlia embodies modern British style with a playful personality and creative styling at its heart. Well known for its fashionable, cleverly cut pieces in fabulous fabrics, prints and bespoke detailing Dahlia were kind enough to discuss their new Spring/Summer 12 collection.
What were the inspirations behind the new collection?
This season we were influenced by late 80’s and early 90’s fashion. We thought about a road trip, a group of friends embarking on an adventure in their VW camper van.
Do you follow the catwalk trends set by the big fashion houses?
Although we love looking at the collections from the big designers, we are more influenced by vintage styles and fabrics. We like the romance and history attached to vintage garments.
What are your favourite dresses from the new range?
Our favourite dresses from the new range is our Annabelle Dress because of its fresh, pretty colours and print and our Margot dress which has a nautical collar and the use of vintage lace makes it the perfect summer dress.
Do you have a celebrity following?
Since Dahlia started out at London’s Portobello and Spitalfields markets it has been a favourite amongst stylish celebrities. Such as Kate Moss, Fearne Cotton, Keira Knightley, Mischa Barton to name a few
