It is with great excitement that we introduce you to our very first fashion client – Nellie & Dove.

Now I know this is a step into the unknow for us at Amino with our interiors head firmly on, but – who could resist and fashion is actually a closer relation to interiors than you may first think. All those lovely colours and fabrics sported by those wonderful willowy models on the catwalks across the globe are very soon after transported into our interiors as the next must-have trend.

Fashion in essence, dictates what will be next year’s interior designer delight, so we at Amino see the natural connections and are delighted to take on this new challenge.

Nellie & Dove is a soon to be opened (8th March), newly created fashion boutique offering collections from both up and coming and newly discovered designers sourced both in the UK and worldwide. The new business is the creation of self-confessed fashion obsessed Helen Spencer, (the Nellie part of the team – Nellie being her childhood nick-name) a designer and trained seamstress of great talent herself. And, who better to entice into your new venture with you than one of your all-time best friends, the elegant Jane Dove. Helen’s fabulous natural enthusiasm, contagious energy and joy de vie leans towards seeking out the unique, unusual and funky. This teams beautifully with Jane’s passion for the classic, sophisticated and chic. Both are blessed with a talent for seeing how styles combine, what works with what, how to create an outfit and hand picking pieces that gel to create style with a difference.

Based in the rural Cotswold village of Deddington, Oxfordshire all items from clothing, shoes, jewellery and accessories will also be all available online at http://www.nellieanddove.co.uk but you must be quick as only three of every item is offered and once it’s gone, its gone. The new boutique will undoubtedly be as vibrant and fun as the Nellie & Dove team; having had a sneak preview earlier this week, we trust you won’t be disappointed …The only challenge I see is keeping the Amino team girlies from buying all the stock before it even hits the rails!
