Today post is purely about an amazing Scottish designer Arlene Barclay, the owner of House of Halos who's designs have been worn by the singer/songwriter Emili Sande. I'm really excited for you lovelies, not only to see her designs, but I also because bagged an interview with the designer aswell ?! Here are some of Arlene's pieces from her Chic and Couture portfolio via her website .
|I love this piece, it reminds me of 'The Great Gatsby'|
I think you will agree when I say all here pieces are just beautiful and now for the interview!
Why and How did you become a designer ?
How did you begin making this collection ? What inspired it ?
How long does it take you to design each piece ?
What advice do you have to any up-coming or aspiring designers?
Is there any celebrity who you would love to wear you pieces ? And if so why ?
Im so blessed as she has already worn it! Emeli is from a suburb from my home town and I'm so so grateful she did. I'd love for Vivienne Westwood to see my work as she is just an utter inspiration in life she and I share many similar interests with helping with planet issues, I'd love to brain storm there one day with her. I want to create "House of Hope" through House of Halos success and House of Hope would help other global charities. .e my "Peace" design line would help charities like "War Child" I've got it all thought out, just need an Investor.

How did it feel to have Emili Sande wear of your pieces ?
Surreal then, still surreal now. I didn't even realise initially she was wearing it as was so in awe at seeing her perform live, then my friends noticed and I just burst into tears, so grateful and was so happy.
Who are your role models ?
