The Details

Self-Portrait: Exclusive Access

"I started with the idea of a summer party," says Self-Portait’s Han Chong of the new occasionwear capsule, available exclusively at Harrods. Invoking all of the brand’s hallmarks – a triple threat of youthful femininity, attention to detail and instinct for accessible luxury, this six-piece collection of party dresses calls to mind the magical je ne sais quoi that has long set Self-Portrait apart.

After-Dark Demure

Subtle, painterly posies decorate plissé chiffon in this entrance-making maxi dress – perfect for cocktails on the veranda.

Sequinned Splendour

Dazzling in this tiered midi dress, which takes its style cues from the 1970s, you’re sure to be the queen of any dancefloor.

Florals To The Floor

A tumbling waterfall of wildflower-print perfection, this cut-out maxi dress is a captivating lesson in conceal-and-reveal dressing.

From something "fluid and airy, with high slits and billowing sleeves" to something "bold and striking in sequins", Han Chong has covered every base…

Meet The Maker

For many designers, dressing the likes of Michelle Obama, Beyoncé and the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex might be an overwhelming prospect; for Han Chong of Self-Portrait, it’s just another day at the office. Meet the man who lives by the mantra: "be humble and work hard".

Tell us about the Self-Portrait philosophy…

I’ve always believed that fashion should be inclusive. Self-Portrait is modern, practical, and feminine – offering high-quality design at an honest price. With every collection, I try to offer our customer something new to get excited about. I want women to feel confident and empowered. Stay true to who you are!

Who is the Self-Portrait woman?

Charismatic and self-assured, the Self-Portrait woman isn’t afraid to own her femininity. I’ve been so fortunate to have had so many gorgeous girls from around the globe wearing my designs; I love to see how they all choose to wear the brand, instead of imposing any styling on them. I take in every bit of feedback I get, and it has an effect on how I design.

"I want women to feel confident and empowered. Stay true to who you are!"

Wedding season is upon us! What is the perfect outfit for an al-fresco dress code?

I love the Botanical Printed Midi Dress for a countryside wedding. The red matches the intensity of the summer heat, while its tiered skirt feels light and breezy – perfect for a whirl around the dancefloor later in the evening! For a daytime occasion, I’d always say to push the boundaries and opt for a print or bold colour.

How about an evening occasion?

The Tiered Striped Sequin Midi Dress from the exclusive capsule collection is perfect for an evening event. While its classic shape highlights the body’s curves, the alternating bands of coloured sequins give this look its festive vibe.

What should every woman have in her wardrobe?

A great dress that can take her from day to night!
