Colour and Prints
Liz Davenport's use of fabric and colour has revolutionised thousands of wardrobes.
One of the most distinctive things about the Liz Davenport collection is the beautiful array of colour. Not afraid of using all shades of the rainbow, Liz is the only designer who works with colour at such a diverse level. Liz appreciates the powerful effect that colour can have on how you feel and how others respond to you. Colour can brighten mood and bring joy to ones sense of self.
Liz also has a keen understanding of the chemistry of colour and has extensively researched complementary colours that work on an individual level or in combination to create a series of harmonious tones.
From this base Liz has developed a unique and comprehensive coordinating colour spectrum which consists of five distinct colour palettes each one of of eight colours:
- Bright Neutrals
- Classic Basics
These palettes, when worked back together create an amazing variety of different outfit options. Every collection is underpinned by classic garments in plain fabrics that cleverly work back with amazing prints to give a fashionable edge. This allows individual interpretation and variety for every wardrobe.
Liz’s love of prints is renowned and she trots the globe seeking unique and divine prints to bring back as inspiration for her next collection.
Liz ensures that every personality type is catered for when she selects a print. Prints are very personal and ‘speak’ to people in different ways. When a print ‘chooses you’ it is a special moment and often brings exclamations of “I love it”!!!
Liz ensures that there is always something bright, bold and daring, soft, sweet and pretty, dramatic monochromatic, earthy and animalistic, oceanic blues and sophisticated neutrals.
Prints can be difficult to work with however Liz has developed the knack of finding the right prints which flatter but do not overpower. Liz chooses prints which have clever designs that ‘nip in’ for a flattering illusion or create a diversion for the eye directing it away from ‘trouble spots”!
Liz also has an innate ability for choosing prints which will last the test of time and be a continual star in your wardrobe. Timeless prints will always look fashionable and bring you joy every time you wear them. There is no value in purchasing a ‘fad’ which you will tire of quickly.
It is this clever attention to detail which makes each Liz Davenport garment something extra ‘special'
