In between my severely delayed train, watching the The Apprentice and going to see the Tracey Emin exhibition (which is brilliant) I was asked to make a corsage. It was for a 16 year old to give to his girlfriend when he took her to prom - cute! Initially I was going to say no but his sweet romantic gesture got the better of me and I agreed. The brief was she's very small and likes pink. Whilst there were a lot of different ways I could have gone I didn't have much time. I made this rustic flower out of a mix of pale pink silks and cream tulle with a combination of pink jewels, crystals and pearls in the centre, I had fallen in love with it myself by the time I had finished.
