BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 6 FEB 2012 11:17 NEW LAUNCHESCOMMENTS
We can officially reveal that British designer, Jenny Packham, will be joining our Designers at Debenhams portfolio with a new women’s, accessories and children’s occasionwear collection – No. 1 Jenny Packham which will hit stores in around April this year.
Jenny Packham is probably best known for her sumptuous bridal gowns and ready-to-wear collections which are often seen on the red carpet and on-screen. No. 1 Jenny Packham will capture Jenny’s signature style in a collection of 19 dresses, with options for bridesmaids, wedding guests and prom-goers alike.
The dresses will be a mixture of softness and structure in soft metallics, floral or intricate graphic prints and bold block colours. Expect the same exquisite detail synonymous with Jenny Packham, featuring wrapping, pleating and gentle draping of fabrics, in a variety of styles from floor-sweeping maxis to organza prom dresses. A range of beautiful accessories including bags, jewellery, shoes and occasion headwear will perfectly complement the dresses.
Jenny Packham says: “As a young girl I was regularly abandoned in Debenhams Southampton whilst my parents disappeared to search for the latest Teasmade or some other ‘must have’ electrical appliance. During this time I lost myself in the rails of ’70s polyester and dreamt of a life in fashion. Therefore it is only natural that I have chosen Debenhams to launch my first High Street collection. My aim, always, is to design styles that create glamour and excitement whether it is for the red carpet or a teenage prom.”
Prices will start at £18 for accessories and from £85 for dresses. We are really excited about the launch of Jenny’s first high street collaboration and can’t wait to show you the full collection, come back soon for more info. For now, here’s a sneak peek at the sort of dresses you can expect… let us know what you think in the comments section below.
