Clare’s range we wanted to showcase for the Wedding season is called ‘Fable’ and is inspired by fairytales and storytelling. As a little girl Clare loved being read bedtime stories (don’t we all) and her favourite books were those that had been passed down and read so many times that the pages were tatty and worn.
