I love ballet. I love the drama and the romance of the dance, the elegance of the dancers, the comedy and tragedy of the stories. And I love the costumes. My love of tulle skirts knows no bounds, I often wear them, and feel they should not be kept to wear for special occasions, but should be worn as often as possible, even if you are just heading out to the supermarket. At this wonderful time of the year, a time of fairies and angels and pantomimes, this is even more the case.
Lovely Tutu is a fashion success story. It specialises in exquisite, handmade skirts and tutus that are created in Italy to the highest specification. The brand was founded by two sisters in law, Yvonne Borowik and Caroline Piech and their clothes are designed with both mothers and daughters in mind. The pieces are beautiful, feminine and timeless.
The Grey Midi Tulle Skirt is the rarest of fashion pieces, a stunning design that is also comfortable and very easy to wear. It is a midi length, is fully lined so it it not see through despite all the tulle, and has an extendable elasticated waistband that allows for an extra dessert if the mood takes you that way.
The skirt is made from three layers of certified Italian tulle, which give it a very romantic look and feel, and yet it is as light as a feather, so could be easily worn in both Winter, with the addition of opaque, or even coloured tights, or in Summer with bare legs and flip flops.
The elasticated waist band has plenty of movement, and also has a very pretty ribbon belt which could be tied at the front, or at the side for two different looks. The skirt is all drama, so it can be teamed with a simple jumper, t-shirt or a polo neck for a stylish, elegant, and yet still understated look.
Lovely Tutu are not only an ethical company that use fabrics that are dyed in environmentally friendly technology, and are 100% handmade in EU from EU certified fabrics and accessories that are safe for baby skin, but they also support worthwhile causes with 10% of their profit shared with UK charity program supporting children’s fight against cancer.
Beautiful, elegant, ethical and unusual, Lovely Tutu creates dream clothes that you can wear whatever the reality. If you are still looking for that dream Christmas present, or need a stunning party piece, this could be for you.
