April

By April the red carpet season was in full swing and thanks to Team Saltzman we tailored this Dsquared2 dress. British actress, Gemma Arterton wore it to The Olivier Awards.

May

In May fashion designer, Roland Mouret, came to London Selfridges to give a masterclass. He spoke about his work, technique and the fashion industry as a whole.

He said, “If I could change something in fashion I would change measurement. I think, we should stop having numbers, we should give a name of a famous body to dresses.

“I think that is the best thing we could do. The Marilyn shape; size Audrey Hepburn. Things that make women happy and not numbers. They don't like numbers.”

Luckily we were there to document and film The Art of Draping.
