Escape in style

As the days get longer – and hopefully warmer – many of us are thinking about getting away for a few days. But it’s always a challenge deciding how to pack lightly and stylishly for a short break. We asked our Head of Design, Elizabeth, to create her ideal capsule wardrobes for two different getaways – a warm weather mini cruise and a city sight-seeing trip.

Summer is the perfect time to try out a fun new look – and stunning tropical prints are the perfect choice. They’re really popular this season, and we can see why. Wearing a sunny outfit printed with bright blooms and gorgeous greenery is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. We adore prints here at David Nieper, so it’s no surprise that we have some glorious tropical prints to choose from.

For an easy way to add a splash of vibrant colour to your outfit, choose a flattering tropical top.


This easy-wear dress will instantly lift your spirits with its vibrant mix of hot pinks and cool blues.

We love the luscious, green, Everglades print, which works well for daytime or evening.

Whether you’re looking forward to relaxing in the garden or jetting off to somewhere hot, there’s a tropical print that’s sure to get your summer started.

Why we love nature’s finest fibres

You may have noticed that here at David Nieper we have a passion for natural fibres. Their lasting beauty is matched by their breathable comfort, and they have an almost magical ability to keep you warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot. So this summer, think about adding some splendid silk and pure, pristine cotton to your wardrobe.

Nothing says summer like a light-as-air cotton dress. Continue reading

How we make our nightwear

We’ve been making nightwear here in Derbsyhirefor over 55 years. In fact, nighties were the very first styles made by David Nieper when we were a fledgling company back in the 1960s. So we know what it takes to make nightdresses and pyjamas that look and feel lovely.

All our nightwear starts life on our pattern-cutting table. Each panel is cut generously for comfort before being passed to the sewing room.

Of course, every style is different, but usually the first step is to make the front and back yokes which are gently gathered for a roomy fit. We often design our nighties with gathered sleeves too, because they give you space to move freely throughout the night. Continue reading

Choose flowers for church – If you’re off to a wedding in a church or country house – or if you’re attending a marquee reception – feminine, floral dreses are ideal. Continue reading
