Pastel printed close fitting dress with long, swinging peplum and matching fringed scarf by John Bates at Jean Varon. All jewellery by Adrien Mann.

Something of a dream combination for me, with two of my favourite designers, Janice Wainwright and John Bates, with one of my favourite photographers, Jim Lee. I don’t see Lee’s work often enough for my liking…
