• London Fashion Week

    Always exciting and heralding the real start of autumn, this weekend saw London Fashion Week, Premier Vision in Paris, and numerous weekend magazines showing distinctive trends in coats. Rejecting the "shaggy bear" look, chesca has gone for  quilts, wools and textured 3/4 coats.

    Our first coat of the season, an ivory/black jacquard cocoon coat has sold out, although a repeat will follow next month for those prepared to be patient, or try it in mink and black, also one of the season's best sellers. We call it a coatigan! This week, we are following up with our three quarter seamed coat, which is stunning with trousers (our model, Katie, has been photographed wearing all 4 colours. Note the interesting zip pockets, a fashion statement in their own right, but perfect to hide that all important credit card, which is contactless on buses and trains. Brighten up those winter days in hot pink, red or vibrant orange or be subtle in "Grace Kelly" oatmeal.  If the pre-orders were anything to go by, this will be a sell out too. Prefer a jacket, try our latest black hip length waterfall, with slouchy pockets in 100% wool. Prefer a full length coat? Why not try our double collar coat in black or vibrant red.

    Do have a glimpse , in spite of the warm weather-you won't regret it.

  • Glitz and Glam!

    Our latest newsletter shows our divine evening dress in black. Your shoulders will stun with the tiny beaded flowers which continue in a shaped vertical panel, creating a bouquet of flowers which draws the eye away from any lumps and bumps. Translucent stretch georgette is ruched onto the panel and tempts and titillates on the decolette which is revealing but flattering at the same time. The hem is fluid, and the length designed to reveal those slender ankles. We love this dress, and it is available ONLY on the chesca web in black, champagne and ivory. Maybe black for that important ball -or ivory if you're a bride next year! Do try one, it will be an addition to your wardrobe which you can wear year after year in any colour. Or have you seen our evening skirt in gold satin jersey with a translucent black overlay, encrusted with black embroidery at the hip. Katie is wearing our jersey tunic tucked into the elastic waistband, but the tunic can be worn over the waistband if your have a straighter shape, which will still show the beautiful embroidery.


    On that topic, take a look at Elizabeth, wearing chesca from head to toe at her daughter's wedding. Not only is she radiant in our silver grey dress and jacket, but she has coordinated her outfit with our matching feather trimmed hatinator, satin shoes and bag. Join us in congratulating the happy family. Thank you, Elizabeth for the photo and your compliments to our manageress in Cambridge.

  • Iconic Style

    Iconic style is on our front page this week, and how else could you describe this stunning reversible coat! The website features the long length (140cms) evening coat in black flocked "velvet" on one side and black on the other, a unique combination which is suitable for all but the most inclement weathers.  An investment piece which has been reordered by us direct from California, this coat is also available in 125cms length in

    olive, aubergine, raspberry, acorn reversing to plain black and dove grey reversing to steel in plains with no flocking.  My friend Marilyn now has 2 and wants a third, a sure sign this is a must have.  We are showcasing several must have pieces this season alongside our newest quirky essentials, well-priced to wear everyday , such as our monotone cowl neck dress at only £95- in all stores next week, including  our boutiques in John Lewis Partnership and House of Fraser, or our pleat dresses with uneven hemline at £145 long sleeved in black, my favourite dress!

    Have you seen our new jersey top, classic in everyway except for the stunning necklace attached , and available in black, deep pink, aubergine and ivory.  A stunning outfit to turn heads would be the ivory jersey, with our latest black pleated trouser  and the flocked coat on the front of the web-true iconic style!

    Just about to send out our latest brochure ,featuring our stunning friend, Katie Green, and it occurred to me that chesca is celebrating 10 iconic years, and we have developed our own unique style over this decade.  Of course, we have our stunning wedding outfits, our famous quilted coats and jackets, and our pleated dresses, tops and shrugs-but they all have something in common-they are first and foremost, designed to flatter and make the least of any lumps and bumps, and the most of your best points.  Slender wrists, a beautiful decollete, an hour glass waist, a flat rear---a lifetime in fashion observing  women's shape, their needs-I enjoy your company and i am a very good listener.....I hope you agree.  Looking forward to the next 10 years!
