When Four Marketing's email arrived in my inbox inviting me to preview Jan Ahlgren's Spring Summer 12 collection they promised pretty clothes, cupcakes, oh and they just happened to drop in the fact that the designer was an extremely attractive former male model... Of course I said yes!

The collection is not my usual style, but oh it is gorgeous. It's not a very feminine collection, but each piece is so striking, particularly the bold red dresses. They're the sort of dresses that look stunning on, and don't require anything else, you just get dressed and go.

My favourite thing about the collection though, is that the clothes feel timeless. I could see myself buying one of Jan's dresses as an investment in my 20s, and still wearing it in my 50s, and for me that is the mark of an amazing designer.

The dresses are indeed very pretty. The red is quite striking. Have a happy weekend.

Oh, these all look so beautiful! I was gutted that I couldn't make it. I want that flowy red dress! And no pictures of the cute designer, Harriet, so disappointed! :)

He really was attractive, and I loved the collection. The pieces were definitely so timeless and class. I fell in love with one of the red dresses.
