New items-Autumn Winter 2013/14

We've had a great season at Spin Doctor, with some exciting new developments! We introduced our new plus size range, with much of the season's selection now available from a size XS to 4XL, and expanding on our previous style to bring in some new style direction!

Pinstripe collection

We really loved the brown and black stripes from last season, but also had some call for similar items in black and white. So we decided to bring out a few favourites in black and white pinstripe. The first being our Octavia bolero and coordination Octavia pencil skirt. With faux leather straps and oxy silver buckles and buttons, we think it's a great addition to a steampunk wardrobe, weather worn together, or with black items as we styled the Octavia bolero, we think it looks great. The gathered sleeve head on the Octavia bolero gives a great Neo-Victorian inspired silhouette. Our 3rd item in this collection is the Agatha jacket, from our previous Amanda jacket in brown and black stripes, we love the dramatic shape of the low/high hem with matching bow in the back. The collection is made from stretch pinstripe twill and hugs the figure beautifully.

 New tops, shirts and skirts!

 We wanted to bring in some everyday, easy to wear pieces into this collection and thought jersey was a great way to do this. Comfortable yet striking designs which could be worn in an everyday setting.
The first is our Iona top, with keyhole cutout in the back, and contast cream lace yoke.

And next is the Tymore top. Again from stretch black jersey, it incorporates a black lace collar and yoke with cut out detail at the front. The cameo is attached to the top, or can be removed if required. A simple black lace trim down the centre of the top and cute cap sleeves.

And for the more extravagent occasion, we designed some gorgeous shirts to see you through the winter months.Inspired by Edwardian times and ssing swiss dot lace, and beautiful black faceted buttons, the Lavelle shirt is a favourite.

 Our lovely Virginia shirt was another strong design which we all loved. With ruffle trims, and a sumptuous self fabric bow to tie at the front of the shirt, it will answer all of your steampunk and gothic dreams.

Lastly we love the Eleanor skirt, as s beautiful accomplice to the shirts and tops. Two layers of black cotton lining with swiss dot mesh make up this deliciously dark piece.

Spin Doctor Autumn/Winter 2013-14 - And introducing the new plus size range!

L-R-  Iona top and Eleanor skirt, Augustine dress, Nevermore dress,

We're excited to unveil the Autumn/Winter 2013-14 lookbook for Spin Doctor.
We had so much fun creating these looks for you this season, with some great props and a fantastic photographer Terry Mendoza

Looking to Edwardian times, we researched styles from 1900-1910 and put our signature modern twist on them. Utilising swiss dot mesh, black lace, velvet trims and cotton poplins, alongside jersey and cream lace. We accessorised the collection with pocket watches, little lace gloves and statement crosses.

We had lots of fun with our photographer, who brought along some great props, skulls, old sewing machines, vintage umbrellas, packing crates and even a raven to sit with the Nevermore dress !!
Our lovely models did us proud and did a great job of getting all spooky for the shoot, Betsy Rose looking like a porcelain Edwardian doll! We loved the round framed glasses and lace up boots that our model Yazzmin wore for this shot.

The Nevermore dress, inspired by Mr. Poe himself, with attention to detail features beautiful glass look faced buttons, lace sleeves and black velvet trim. We teamed it up with some great lace up boots and a top hat. Taking the steampunk look in a completely new direction for the season.

Spin Doctor adds new sizes to the range!

We are also excited to announce, after much demand, that our new range now features sizes from an XS up to a 4XL and we wanted to reflect this in our new lookbook. Much of the collection is available in all sizes, you can find out which pieces are available on our facebook page. 
We absolutely love the Iona top modelled by the gorgeous turquoise haired beauty Zoe Melissa Mae and the Eleanor skirt modelled by flame haired beauty Litha Bacchi !

Spin Doctor Sping/Summer 2013 Collection

We're excited to unveil some of the new Spring Summer 2013 collection for Spin Doctor! I'm sure our readers and fans are as excited about this as we are! We had the lovely Betsy Rose back with us to model some of our gorgeous new styles, and steampunk-ed it up to the hilt! With plenty of lovely photoshoot props getting in on the action. 

Below is the Tora top and Sally skirt in black (coming soon)

Inspired by a modern take on Victoriana and steampunk, we went for chocolate hues, with cream lace accents, as well as some staple black pieces. We wanted to inject a bit of summer into the Steampunk and Gothic style, keeping the garments wearable and light for the summer months.

The dress below is the Nia dress with amazing wooden buttons and adjustable straps.

Below is the Sally skirt in cream, we love the brown faux leather suspender accent on this skirt! We teamed it up with our Sian shirt in chocolate brown with cream accents:

We teamed the outfits with chocolate lace up boots and frilly cream socks, and paired them with an incredible headpiece from Curiology whose creations need to be witnessed!  Go check out their unique jewellery =)!
