The new Bright Multi Coloured Kaleidoscope Kimono

My latest kimono style has been handmade using an amazing bright and multi Coloured digital print, that I like to call Kaleidoscope! So many colours and since there is a lot of pleating on the back of the kimono, it shows off the print and all the varying shades so beautifully.

This kimono is handmade from a 100% cotton sateen, and is the perfect design to wear in spring and summer for so many occasions. I personally like to wear this style to the beach over the top of my swimmers- it keeps the sun off your skin while still staying cool - since it is a fine fabric and not tight so it lets the breeze flow.

I also like to dress the kimono up and wear it with a gorgeous pair of heels, and a hot skirt or pair of pants. When taking photos of the Kaleidoscope Kimono, I tried it with plainer pants like black pants or jeans... Then I tried it with my brighter red pants and my bright as can be skirt. Personally, I much rather it with the brighter items. It seems to be so much more fun!

My Penelope Red women say one of the best parts about buying designs from me is that they know that not everyone will be walking down the street with the same thing on as them- since my designs are unique and always limited edition and I only make a small amount of each. The beauty about buying handmade fashion! For me I love that what I design and make lasts- it won't go out of fashion the minute the season is over... It won't fall apart the minute you wash it... And I love my choice in fabrics!

Penelope Red Handmade Winter Coats

Whenever I take my fashion designs to The Rocks Markets, in Sydney,  during Winter, I am asked about Winter coats. They are not the average coat, and it's very obvious as soon as you take a look at one! Firstly, they must have colour! Secondly, they are tailor made or custom made. Thirdly, they have a number of layers- this depends on the style we are talking about. 

The following photos have been taken over the past few years of some of the various coat designs I have created for some truly very special and fashionable women!

I created this winter coat for Lorelle from a bright red wool and then added an appliqué in a Liberty of London wool print. I randomly create the appliqué design as I go!

Teena's Black, Red and White Winter Coat is probably still one of my favourite versions! I love the white piping in between the red and black!
