Shell Belle's Voyage Collection
What a delightfully styled and summery way to present lingerie! Beautifully shot with stunning stylish, Shell Belle's Voyage Collection slipped dreamily onto my Summer design inspiration radar. The floaty, vintage inspired collection is more Great Gatsby than overt burlesque performer, and brings a breath of fresh air and and lightness into the lingerie fashion world. Shot on location at Kuxville Beach Cottages, Mauritius.

Experience and a sophisticated approach to marketing and styling is highly evident. Acclaimed designer Michelle Blenkinsopp has designed for many of the global lingerie brands and is also a designer and illustrator for a top trend consultancy. Michelle has an obsessive attention to detail with a nostalgic approach to design.

Michelle has combined her knowledge, experience and obvious passion lingerie to create Shell Belle Couture. The collection is designed in her English Studio and crafted in Mauritius using Silks, Tulles & Laces. Michelle works alongside highly  trained seamstresses to apply precious vintage touches to these delicate, sophisticated pieces.
