Make Believe is the AW15 collection from the NATALIEBCOLEMAN label. Inspired by the characters and worlds in Enid Blyton’s ‘The Enchanted Wood’ Series, Natalie has developed hand drawn illustrations into digital prints to produce a whimsical romantic womenswear collection. With hand finished embroidery and beadwork this collection is evocative, dreamy, feminine and playful.
