Following on from last year’s success collaboration with Karen Brady, which tailored a collection of perfect work dresses, BHS are again teaming up with a well-known TV personality in order to showcase a range of beautiful dresses.
This time the lady in question is Emma Forbes, and the dresses are now as far removed from daytime wear as they could possibly be. The focus is on occasion wear – summer weddings, a day at the races, ladies day’s from Ascot to Wimbledon, graduation ceremonies, garden parties and any other summer occasion that I may have forgotten. Emma has teamed up with BHS to cherry pick from their wide range of dresses, and has come up with four key designs that should address every summer need.
The dresses are lovely, with designs that could suit a variety of body shapes (they come in sizes 8-22). My favourite is the navy side wrap dress that I think is the perfect dress for curvier ladies, with draping and a wrap shape to accentuate those curves. The one shoulder floral print dress has a watered silk print that is the perfect dress for a summer wedding, whilst all after dark events are covered with the silver embellished cocktail dress. Finally the collection is completed with the Erdem – esque, Middlton style lace peplum dress, which has a flash of disco silver that makes this a great day to evening dress.
The dresses are all available online now, and in selected stores.
