Rose Quartz & Serenity

Pantone Color Of The Year 2016

“For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

The next step…


“WOW what a year it has been for Shut The Front Door! New collections/magazine features/awards and so much more, it’s definitely been a whirlwind! When I decided to embark on the magical journey of creating my own headpiece and accessories line I could only dream that it would be this well received. I love this industry and I am so passionate about beautiful design, fashion and accessories that I am thrilled to announce the next step for Shut The Front Door…

Yearning to learn all I could about the hat industry, I decided to take things to the next level and have been studying Millinery Design for the past two years. This styled shoot is a sneak peek into the world of STFD COUTURE. With my brand new STFD Couture range due to be launched mid 2015 I can’t wait to share this exciting new chapter with you all.”
