Jenny Packham to design collection for Debenhams
Jenny Packham, a designer favoured by the Duchess of Cornwall, is to design a collection for Debenhams.
As part of the Designers at Debenhams portfolio, the No. 1 Jenny Packham collection will launch in April and feature women’s and children's occasionwear as well as a range of accessories.
Packham is probably best known for her sumptuous bridal gowns and ready-to-wear collections which are often seen on the red carpet and on-screen. Debenhams said No. 1 Jenny Packham will capture the designer’s signature style in a collection of 19 dresses, with options for bridesmaids, wedding guests and prom-goers.
The dresses will be a mixture of softness and structure in soft metallics, floral or intricate graphic prints and bold block colours. There will be a variety of styles from floor-sweeping maxis to organza prom dresses. The accessories will include bags, jewellery, shoes and occasion headwear.
Jenny Packham explaned: "As a young girl I was regularly abandoned in Debenhams Southampton whilst my parents disappeared to search for the latest Teasmade or some other ‘must have’ electrical appliance.
"During this time I lost myself in the rails of ’70s polyester and dreamt of a life in fashion. Therefore it is only natural that I have chosen Debenhams to launch my first High Street collection."
Prices will start at £18 for accessories and from £85 for dresses.
