Unprecedented. Words none of us were used to hearing a while ago. Its a crazy time and so many people I know are suffering - even though most us aren't actually sick yet. I've had my moments this week as most of us probably have and as a business it's going to affect not only me but all the amazing people I work with on a daily basis.
Surround yourself with your calmest family and friends, make sure you have a large glass of bubbles on hand and wear something you can relax and look chic in for photos while you get your hair and make up done. Our ivory silk cotton robe is an excellent option and one you can wear as a luxe everyday robe after the wedding too.
So you've hand picked your best girlfriends to be your bridesmaids and with squeals of delight and some bubbles they've happily accepted the honour. But keeping your bridesmaids happy is no mean feat - especially when it comes to finding a dress that suits everyone and that they actually want to wear on the day.
When I first dreamt of starting a lingerie label two years ago - these knickers were the piece that best defined what I wanted to achieve with the label. I wanted to make lingerie that made the woman wearing it feel liberated, confident and ‘sexy on her terms’.
The bush fire situation happening here in Australia right now is devastating. It is hard not to know someone who has been affected. It is hard to watch rolling footage of what looks like some kind of futuristic apocalypse and not feel utterly heartbroken for the people, animals and land affected. Now is not the time to talk about fashion or try and selfishly promote a business while others are suffering. It is the time to donate, help and heal however possible.
Before Angie Kent joined the madness that is the Bachelorette 2019 I thought I’d send her some Ms. Kensington lingerie and a bespoke love letter to help her feel inspired and confident on the journey to find love. I was thrilled when Angie reached out to tell me she had worn her London Print robe everyday on set.
Laura from This Island Life delivers some serious travel wardrobe inspiration on a dream trip to beautiful Bawah Island. "I’m usually straight into a bikini when I wake up, but on Bawah Island, all I wanted to do was swan around my beach bungalow in this silky ensemble."
There isn’t a planet B. Fashion is meant to be forward thinking and ahead of the curve and yet it is one of the most heavily polluting industries contributing to #climatechange. We must stay committed to working towards better practices for people and the planet.
A huge thank you to everyone who came to the private viewing of the London Collection. It was a lovely evening and so nice to be able to present the debut collection in such a gorgeous setting. The London Collection is designed to capture the city’s beauty whilst highlighting its darker, edgier side.
We have officially joined Our STORE - a designer collective sharing a permanent space in the leafy enclaves of Sydney's Paddington. Home to eight Australian designers, who have come together to create a unique retail space, sharing everything from the cost of the lease to taking turns to staff the store.
A chance encounter at a trade fair in Feb last year has led to a really lovely brand collaboration between Ms. Kensington Silk Lingerie and the gorgeous Sarah Cotterall of Silk & Steel Jewellery. I wanted to write this post as it's so important in business to support each other and realise that "Incredible things happen when women support other women".
It can be really stressful when you're split between being a mum, running a business and trying to be a good friend, partner and person to then try and cram in more things into your day for 'balance'. This week I've tried yoga, not drinking and going to bed earlier without looking at my phone actually rather stressful.
