John Lewis:Coronation Dresses:Daniel

I am so honoured/proud that one of my friends Daniel Hubbard from Bridlington has had a role creating these beautiful iconic creations to celebrate the Queen's Coronation Anniversary. Daniel designed the dresses from the archive images and modified a few things but kept them true to the archive images.

The dresses originated from the John Lewis' archive from 1953, and prints were digitized and altered from the archive also, some of which originated from the 1800's and were hand painted.

All these beautiful dresses have been made in the UK, and are being showcased in fashion shows at Buckingham Palace Gardens between 11th july and 14th july to celebrate the Queens Coronation Anniversary.The only people to show case at this event are royal warrant holders.

The dresses have also been featured in Hello! magazine as a competition that you can enter and win one of the dresses of your choice made in your size. How fantastic! They have also been featured in the evening standard and

If you would like to see the dresses them selves, they are currently in the window of the John Lewis Store Oxford Street.
