How Lottie Moss wears her Forget Me Not scarf

Posted on October 25 2017

At the beginning of 2017 a lovely stylist from Northern Ireland and the organiser of the Homage Fashion Charity Show called Cindy McKendry, approached me to design a scarf for the event.

We talked about the design and colours that would best capture the event. A golden yellow for Whiskey, as the Homage event was going to be held in the Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, a black and skinny scarf for the Rock n Roll music and turquoise to give the design a fun 60s/ 70s vibe.

At that time, I was working on my Language of Flowers Collection and on hearing the event was in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, it was serendipity! I had just finished screen printing several Forget Me Not flowers using exactly those colours and sent her an image, which she loved!

For the Homage Fashion Charity Show I created and donated a Forget Me Not silk kimono, a sleeved scarf and a very large scarf which I hope will find a lovely home with a generous supporter of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Kate Moss and Lottie Moss also very generously donated a beautiful pair of turquoise Miu Miu shoes, to be auctioned at the event. To thank them, Cindy sent them one of my Forget Me Not skinny scarves, seen here beautifully styled as a soft knot in Lottie’s hair.

Homage Fashion Charity Show is being held at the Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery on Saturday 4 November and will be a wonderful evening of whiskey, fashion and rock and roll with live music from The Undertones and Tim Wheeler and a runway show. An auction and raffle will be held to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
