Mother of Pearl Fashion for Women
Mother of Pearl Creative Director Amy Powney lives so close to the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow and often references his work throughout her collections – this 'Anner' dress is patterned with flowers inspired by the artist's wallpaper prints. Cut from silk-blend georgette, it has a pleated and tiered yoke and cuffs, and adjustable ties to cinch the loose silhouette. Draw out the white daisies with matching pumps.
