• Dawn French, spotted by our avid newsreader

    Just caught sight of our favourite model wearing c h e s c a in the Daily Mail-the fabulously funny Dawn French. Wearing our cowl neck shift with opal sequin print collar, she always is a credit to us for every occasion. This jersey dress is stylish and comfortable, and oh-so-flattering.

    Our stunning pink chiffon dress and jacket was spotted at Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot, a welcome change from the short sharp shift which is the uniform for Races. A touch of sparkle on her hat and dress, this really flatters the curves -a new idea for the Duchess of Cambridge?
    Also seen at Ascot , our unique rose feather hat, a concoction of feathers in the shape of a rose-- the lady who sent the pic in says she had dozes of compliments on the day in our exclusive headgear- if you have a Summer wedding to go to how about one of these as an investment?

We wish the happy couple  the best of luck  and thank her for choosing the Silver Grey  chiffon dress with Cream & Ivory Embroidery and hope she will choose chesca for the ocassions ahead.

  • Ink will make you Wink!

    We are just about to launch a brand new range, not quite navy, not quite green, nor even blue, but ink! There is a flower print jersey 3-piece, with gorgeous blue flowers scattered on an ivory background, crafted into the most flattering dress and jacket with plain navy contrast. There is even a top in the same print and all 3 are trimmed with navy bands, a lovely inky navy which is also designed into a beautiful flattering gored skirt.

    Maybe you would prefer our lovely lace top-the lace is pleated into a flattering v neck with beaded sleeves-and of course, there is a matching crinkle satin jacket with lace inserted into it. This jacket matches the top, but also a crinkle satin dress with lace insert in the skirt. All start their journey to the stores on our website.

    A lovely lined stripey georgette jacket, with a frill collar - I am so looking forward to owning one, maybe with a short sleeved v neck top in georgette in the same shadow stripe. Blues and blacks dance on ivory crinkled georgette, making the two piece match every colour-pop it into your wardrobe and match with blue, black, grey, ivory, red--any colour?

    More info to come over our latest jersey cardigan-in 3 colours, the first of which is blues, greys and navy-a lovely smudgey mixtures of colours. Fab once the Autumn days come into play so keeping this one on web only, until August.

    More to tell you about the last of the Summer wine next week--lace is the key!
