I caught up with Sam Bailey today to view her stunning collection at the Pullman Sydney Hyde Park.
I have to be honest, I have the most jam-packed week ahead with so many designers and shows to see this at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, it has been hard to choose who to review. The reason I decided to chat to Samantha Bailey today is because love the look of her designs, and believe me, I was not disappointed! I love colour and soft fabrics and Samantha has created a beautiful range of feminine, adaptable styles. So gorgeous are these garments I have been inspired to get back to the gym ASAP! However, in saying that, Sam has designed the dresses to be extremely flattering with folds of fabrics positioned in just the right places, so you don't have to be a size 8 to wear these gorgeous clothes.
Sam has spent a great deal of time and thought making sure that the garments can be adjusted and no 'wardrobe malfunctions' could ever occur.
I can visualise celebrities walking down the red carpet in these exquisite designs and winning the 10/10 award in the women's magazines.
So thoughtful is Sam, that she will be producing the garments in plain colours which would also be suitable for brides and bridesmaids.
The colours exquisite, the fabric soft and elegant and the designs you can see for yourself at www.samanathabailey.com.au
