Karen Mabon x Dawn O’ Porter

Karen Mabon has designed the prints for Dawn O’ Porters BOB range for the past two seasons and I am more excited than ever with the new season collection! This seasons prints are based on the theme of She wears the trousers taking a look at powerful women through the ages. I played with ideas that can be seen in the images, I experimented with a number of different influential women from Mary Queen of Scotts to Baby from Dirty Dancing.

Dawn O’ Porter held an event to launch the new collection and her pop up shop! There are some great shots of Lydia Bright and Susie Bubble from Style Bubble modelling some of the collection.

You can see some of the inspirations and development behind the prints in these photos and shop the collection here!
