Ghost London down under

Launched three decades ago Ghost is a heritage London fashion house producing contemporary, luxurious clothing.

I am so incredibly flattered to be writing about this beautiful dress and one of my all time favourite dress designers. 

Three years ago I was out shopping in John Lewis, looking for the perfect dress to wear to see the Phantom of the Opera (all time fave show). As you can imagine I had a changing room full of dresses to try on, some of those dresses were Ghost London. They looked so luxurious, I had to try them on. 

I can remember as soon as the floor length gown slid down my body I had the shivers. It felt so beautiful, silky and expensive! I looked in the mirror and I just fell in love. I felt like I should have been walking down a red carpet. Ever since that day I have always been a fan of the fashion house. I had been longing for an event to go to so I can purchase my dream dress. Patiently waiting for an invite to a wedding, christening, fashion show, charity night.. ANYTHING. Unfortunately my life isn't all that exciting and I never got that occasion - UNTIL NOW.

A few months ago I was contacted by Ghost London. They wanted to send me a dress to show all my lovely readers how beautifully made they are, little did they know I was already a HUGE fan. So much so that when I was reading the email I didn't even click to who it was, until I clicked on their website link, I nearly cried. I nearly cried because I was so flattered they liked my blog. They explained they have been big fans for quite some time now and would really value my opinion on one of their creations.
It was the perfect match. 

The fashion house creates some of the most beautiful occasion dresses I have ever seen. They are perfect for any event and I really wanted to show you a more relaxed view of the dress. I picked this stunning emerald sea green colour because it really did remind me of an emerald mermaid. I loved how natural it looked and I thought it would be really easy to show how casual it can be too. Of course I knew I was heading to Australia in the coming months so I held off showing you. I wanted you to see it in a different light, different temperatures and different surroundings. 

Ghost London has been seen on the likes of Lana Del Ray, Lily Cole & Kate Moss. Ghost is an extremely desirable brand for brides to be and their bridesmaids. Ghost does a 'Dye to Order' option which means you can really have your favourite style in the perfect colour of your choice. From their candy floss colours and their elegant finishes it's not hard to see why Ghost is the brand to go to. 

What did you think of my dress choice? 

Concessions include John Lewis & Urban Outfitters. There's different outlets and boutiques across the country but if you can't make the stores you can order online at www.ghost.co.uk
