Merry Christmas!


Happy Christmas from the Studio and commercial office at Sublitex. These lovely ladies wear the latest Christmas print swing dresses from the UK made from fabric and garments generously supplied by Crosspatch and Printaprint of Leicester. The gang caused quite a stir in Alba this week bringing the Christmas look to Italy and showing the locals how to truly show festive cheer.

Happy Christmas and wishing you all a wonderful 2017 from The Print Affair team.

Season’s Greetings!


This is Mr Hussein Dakri of City Screen Prints, who had great fun in the run up to the festive season developing Christmas designs with Alice and Sarah aimed at festive revellers.

Version 2

Our studio and sales office was awash with images of Father Christmas, snowmen, Rudolph, snow globes and christmas trees, and great fun was had by all. As time went on the prints got wilder and wilder and this was the final design we made and was worn by the designers and team at Sublitex for their Christmas party!


Season’s Greetings from your festive bloggers at The Print Affair!


Sarah, Laura, Alice and Alannah

And a Happy New Year!

Celebrity Christmas Style

by Alannah Messett –

We all know how hard it is to find that perfect Christmas party dress, so we’ve put together our favourite celebrity party styles and our best style-steals of the winter months to give you some inspiration.


Don’t worry Boho chicks, there is a Christmas dress out there for you! We love Poppy Delevigne’s quirky look for the Chanel Mademoiselle Prive exhibition in October, as well as Alexa Chung’s sophisticated look at the British Fashion Awards last month. Steal their style with one of these beautiful embroidered and printed dresses from Warehouse available here and here.

Binky’s Collection

From Instagram @binkyfelstead: Yesterday’s retro look. Loved meeting everyone at @ClothesShow ! Wearing this dress from my collection with @inthestyleuk / boots @inthestyleuk #fashion #clothesshow #boho

We love Binky’s dress from The Clothes Show this week; pair with tights and a cosy cardigan for Christmas Day. You can buy her exact dress from her collection at In The Style here.

Dark Romance

Black lace is so easy to style and effortlessly creates an elegant look, like Emma Roberts at Fox’s All Star Party in Vera Wang. Nail this look in Warehouse’s beaded black dress, available here.

Mary Katrantzou

Our favourite print so far has to be from Elisa Sednaoui at the British Fashion Awards in Mary Katrantzou. Try the Ditsy Doll Dress to steal her look from Topshop.

From Instagram @orlakiely: @laurenlaverne looking adorable in L’Orla (@leithclark X @orlakiely) Viola confetti jacquard high neck dress presenting The Turner Prize on C4 tonight #Lorla #leithxorlakiely #orlakiely

We’ve already raved about L’Orla – the collaboration with Orla Keily and Leith Clark. At The Turner Prize 2015 in Glasgow, Lauren Laverne wore the Viola confetti jacquard high neck dress dress to perfection. Grab it here.

All White Everything

If you’re not into dresses, a white jumpsuit is the spotlight-stealing way to go. We’ll be taking our suit inspiration from Naomi Watts at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party and Louisa, after she wowed on The X Factor on Saturday. Check out ASOS’ white suit collection here.


Getting into the Christmas spirit…


Now December is upon us, everybody is looking for that perfect Christmas dress. We have picked our favourite prints, including gingerbread men and Santa, and lots of tartan (what is a winter wardrobe without it?). Whether it’s for the Christmas party, the actual day, or you feel like your closet is missing a cheesy snowman dress, we have you covered!
