This line is currently riding high on my list of favorites, and has held that position for awhile. I can’t help it. I not only love founder Ray Kelvin’s couture, I love his outlook.
Raised in humble circumstances, Ray named his company after the fictitious “Ted Baker,” and resolved to make every item beautiful while balancing just the right amount of flair. This gown is no exception, with its dark floral patterns and pleats exposing slices of cobalt blue.
So I can’t help loving this line, but what I admire most is that its founder appears completely genuine.
In reflecting upon his success, Ray says, “I’m not a lover of the attention…it’s not what I came into business for.”
