Pale & Interesting

Earlier this month we finally moved into our new studio space.

The calm white space is so inspiring, it’s the perfect follow-on from my obsession as a child for pure white note books, I always loved the whiteness of a blank page & viewed it as a blank canvas, a creative opportunity waiting to unfold.

This is the perfect creative space and worth the wait of over 18 months to finally move in!

We are moments from the rugged north cornwall coast & overlook a nature reserve… perfect!

Celebration of Love Soiree

Shell belle couture was delighted to be invited to host a‘celebration of love’ summer soiree pop-up at the wedding club.

We had a beautiful summer evening with champagne flowing, silk, chocolates & divine jewellery in collaboration with charbonnel & walker chocolates and ‘say it with lights’ for the magical ‘love’ lighting.

The Roaring 20's

I have collected vintage lingerie & slip dresses for over 20 years, focusing on the 20’s & 30’s eras of which I am consumed.

I love everything from this beautiful era of Decadence, Excess & Romance, from the architecture, jewellery to interiors & works of art. It is endlessly inspiring!

The languid approach to Luxury & wealth I find irresistible thus inspiring our Shell Belle Couture collections, our beautiful fabrics include washed silks.

Our vintage styled silk crepe-de-chine which are adorned with exclusive in-house designed embroidery or French leavers lace. Our vintage style silk Crepe de chine has meticulous applique French lace details which epitomize our luxury pieces.


I personally feel that the Roaring 20’s was a cultural explosion of self-indulgence, self-expression and hedonism, whilst jazz music blossomed & the Art Deco movement exploded the Flapper Girls were not only empowered but having the time of their lives, whilst discovering the pleasures of a newly affluent society.

The Shell Belle Couture brand pays homage to this era and combines the delicate touches & feminine details that have long been forgotten. With heirloom intricacy we use our highly skilled machinists to create the Shell Belle Couture styles working with the finest silks & French Leavers laces.

The look of the 20’s was a pure statement of elegance & glamour; the looks are refined, timeless & breathtakingly beautiful! In over twenty years I haven’t tired of this period, my personal obsession continues…
