CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE COLLECTION?

The Nikita Collection was influenced by the strong animal print trend, but with a sophisticated take and a fun play with colour.  We’ve designed knowing the weather is still cool but that a lot of people travel at this time of year – so it's quite a trans-seasonal range.

WHAT ARE YOU LOVING FROM THE COLLECTION?

I am wearing the Nikita dress in superfine cotton voile. I love the print, the three-quarter sleeve and the length is perfect for me. I wear it with sandals or white sneakers.

WHO DO YOU DESIGN FOR? IS THE MORRISON MUSE EVER-EVOLVING, OR IS THERE A VERY SPECIFIC MORRISON GIRL?

Morrison started because I designed some pieces for myself using beautiful fabrics and to an extent that remains true. I still design for myself and my friends, but we also have come to know some of customers really well, and we design with them in mind. Our focus it to create timeless pieces using beautiful fabrics that make our clients feel inspired.
