Meet the designer
Deborah Charles began designing and making clothes at a very early age. After accepting the commission to create a wedding gown for a friend, the hugely positive response she received motivated Deborah to open her first showroom and workshop in the UK.
In the early nineties Deborah was invited to enter one of her gowns into a national competition to find “Best British Designer”. Her dress, “Romance and Roses”, won her the prestigious title. This success, together with her flair and passion for creating gorgeous gowns, saw her go on to claim the award a further 3 times during her career. This incredible achievement made Deborah a highly sought- after designer and respected name within the wedding and bridal industry.
Creating the perfect dress for a girl's special day was truly rewarding, but after 20 years Deborah decided upon a fresh challenge… and her close links to sunny Spain inspired a new business venture.
With the increasing popularity of beach clubs, exotic destinations and luxury cruises, Deborah saw the opportunity to help today's fashion conscious, independent women look fabulous whilst relaxing in warmer climes.
“Having worked with traditional ivory cream and white throughout my career in bridal couture, it’s been so exciting for me to create this new collection of elegant and fashionable summer Kaftans using an unrestricted colour palette and luxurious silk fabrics…and the response from my customers has been amazing!
