Today I'm delighted to show you some new releases from a brand new store, Il Sogno, that opened its' doors for the very first time this week!
Il Sogno is the dream of DJ and model Occasus Jayaram (O), who's been a friend of mine since back in the day at The Model's Workshop. Her first Ready-to-Wear collection is a feast of hues, with a co-ordinating range of pieces in rich plum, vibrant yellow, burnt orange and turquoise, with some black and white thrown in for good measure. O told me she's nervous about how her collection will be received - and as a fledgling designer myself, I can understand exactly how she feels - but this collection with it's bold use of colour and pattern looks totally confident to me!
