Westmorland is the second of two collections that I designed and photographed in November 2021. Like the Cumbria collection, it includes menswear designs. Westmorland is named after the historic county of North West England from the 12th century until 1974 when it became a part of Cumbria.
The menswear is modelled by James, the handsome husband of Georgia, my beautiful model. They were married in September last year, I’m so happy for them as they make such a lovely couple, I’m sure you will agree!
The patterned designs in Westmorland are largely inspired by European ornamental design and Far East textile and carpet design along with mixtures of more traditional motifs. The plain textured stitch designs are inspired by traditional twisted stitches and cables.
Westmorland is the second collection with the new extended size range and features the 6 new colours in the British Breeds range, which were launched last year.
We photographed both Cumbria and Westmorland in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and there are elements of both locations in each of the collections. In the Lakes, we photographed around the village of Elterwater and on the beautiful Langdale Estate. In the Dales, we photographed at the home of my friend Alison O’Neill, at Shacklabank Farm, near Sedbergh. You can read a little more about the locations in the features at the end of the book.
