womens waistcoat

We have exciting news. The DDR designer has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a brand new product for SS15; a new sleeveless jacket available in two fabulous styles!  The chic waistcoat trend has certainly been making a comeback in recent years. From the fur gilets of the high street to the reworked denim waistcoats of vintage fashion, sleeveless is all the rage.

But we’re not followers of fashion at Dawson D Rose. We prefer to work with the classics…

This sketch was the birth of our Elgin Sleeveless Jacket (available in March). Available in one sleek, flattering length, Elgin is beautiful and elegant. This is a boxy style long waistcoast with simple lines and is bang on trend for 2015. As with everything else at DDR, it is customisable with your chosen fabric and collar lining and is available in sizes S/M/L.

How to Wear Pointed Paisley Collar : She Was A Day Tripper

Bib necklaces and detachable collars are a great way of adding drama to a simple daytime outfit. And when we saw how Sarah from She Was A Day Tripper styled our Pointy Paisley Collar Necklace, we realised that workwear just got interesting!

We think that Sarah has styled our Pointed Paisley Collar perfectly – don’t you agree? Combined with her neat slicked-back bun and her sophisticated makeup, Sarah has managed to turn what could have been an ordinary working day outfit into something of a stylish affair. And we applaud her fantastic efforts…

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Her | From Dawson D Rose

It’s almost here gentleman; the day of Saint Valentine is nearly upon us. And if you’ve landed on this post because you’re in search of the perfect present for the perfect woman, let us give you our top three recommendations.

This gorgeous heart print bib necklace features a giant tulle bow for the utmost romance and drama. Designed for the hopeless romantic or the girly girl, our heart print bow necklace is a must-have accessory.

We just love this funky/cute diamond shaped bow tie. It beats a girly necklace for the self-confessed tomboy. It’s adds an androgynous edge to an everyday outfit. And trust us, if she’s an alternative fashionista she’ll be so delighted you chose this.


floral bib necklace

Perfect for the vintage chick, our floral collar necklace is a modern take on a retro print. If you’re dating a forties vixen, a fifties pin-up or a sixties siren, this vintage-inspired collar necklace is the ultimate gift. She’ll be so surprised.
