Have you heard of Nancy Van Ostren? Even if you have you may not know that her biography is shot through with a sense of inevitability.
Hailing from a family of tailors, she claims that she was aged just six when she decided to become a designer. Educated at LCF, she went on to work at Zandra Rhodes, Burberry, Jasper Conran and dVb before striking out on her own.
And that’s where the inevitability ends. For the collection itself is far from predictable including quirky tailoring, dramatic dresses with cutaway sections, panelled and bubble-hem shorts and pussy bow details all in a mix of silk, cotton and linen. Everything in this range is clever, considered and cute and it is only her second collection. Get on board now before it's too late. The brand cites Clements Ribeiro and Todd Lynn as adjacencies. Wholesale prices go from £80 to £360 Explore more atSource URL: http://icip2idayusof.blogspot.com/2010/10/fancy-nancy.html Visit Icip2idayusof for daily updated images of art collection
