A Black & White Checked Couture Gown

There were two things that I loved as soon as I saw this shoot – the model’s gorgeous red hair and that dress! Very Vivienne Westwood inspired on both counts…and we all know how much I adore a bit of Vivienne.

The shoot was set up to promote dress designer Nicki Hill‘s new range of bridal gowns. Based in Southampton UK, Nicki is famed her stunning couture gowns. Dresses like this one are made to order and created in her own studio.

Big love and thanks to photographer Kathryn and designer Nicki for sharing these images with us today.

  1. This reminds me so much of the 50’s dresses and plaid I use to wear. Don’t have the red hair though! Love it!

  2. This shoot was so much fun to photograph! Huge thanks to Nicki for designing such a gorgeous dress and also to Claire Wallace for doing such an amazing job with the hair and make-up which really helped to pull off the 50s movie star look.
