THE BRONTES HERITAGE

The Song: Your garment is inspired by music. Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush…sung about the Bronte characters Cathy and Heathcliff, whose intense feelings result in a dangerous obsession.

Artwork Name: This design is a testament to the Bronte sisters, who famously wrote about female characters who were strong independent women, controversial for their time!

The Design: From the nineteenth-century style ruffled collar to the cameo broach, everything about this soft, fully lined, light blue denim jacket is spectacular.

Small spherical brass buttons adorn the front of the design, with additional buttons to the cuffs. Sleeves have been created to look like gloves, with ruffles that sit gently over the hands and attached at the elbow with a delicate bow.

The pleated frill that circumnavigates the entire hemline of the garment flows lightly in the breeze, while the embellishment to the back of the shoulders boasts diamantes that glint in the light from their ruffled black “tier”.
