Today I am looking at the SS13 Collection of fashion designer Charlotte Simpson, whose pieces have been spotted been worn by a few celebrities of late and when you see these pieces you know why as the are simply beautiful with bead work that must have taken Charlotte months to bead. Her attention to detail is breathtaking.

Charlotte studied Fashion at Northumbria University and on graduating in 2009 she won the Zandra Rhodes Catwalk Textiles award at Graduate Fashion Week. Before starting her own company in 2012, Charlotte gained an MA in Fashion Design and Technology Womenswear at London College of Fashion and gained experience working with some amazing brands including Amanda Wakeley and Julien Macdonald.
I managed to see Charlotte’s collection at a trade show and in seeing her pieces; you can see that she looks to express her knowledge for her craft with an exceptional eye in order to create a contemporary yet classic twist which results in unique and elegant lines for any chic woman’s wardrobe.
For her SS13 collection, Charlotte took inspiration from scientific imagery to create slick lines using a soft colour palette of pastels. I love the use of micro sequins and beads within this collection. Charlotte has beautifully executed her theme of microbiology by mixing textures with slashed neckline and cinched in waists.
