Samantha Davy Dress Me Beautiful Designer of the Year

by Arash Mazinani on April 26, 2011

Ok it’s my birthday today so I thought I’d drop a post for you that was image heavy to keep you guys going. This is a local designer; Samantha Davy who graduated from Manchester Met University. She recently won the Designer of the Year Award at the dress me beautiful fashion show in Leeds. The inspiration for the collection below, comes from different cultures and hand crafts, she intended for the pieces to have a laid back festival style.

My personal favourite picks from the collection are the studded shorts, perfect now the weather has started to come good and also the waistcoat with the fringe detailing, which fails right into the modern craft trend that is big for spring summer! If you’re actually wanting to have a look at the collection in full you can shop it at www.accentclothing.com.

I’m not a big fan of the items, but Happy Birthday nonetheless! (It’s probably because I swore off black!) :-)

Hope you had a FANTASTIC DAY!! I do love these designs, and I’m really interested in seeing what the new up and coming designers come up with. It’s refreshing, it’s full of influences… All very dark and grey but agree with ou on loving the shorts

I love the fringe in the first pic and the shorts in the last pic-I actually really love the ease of her aesthetic, but I do wish there was a little more surprise.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday!
