Yellow coat with appliqued lapels

Four years after closing Svelt (her label with Kerrie Hughes) Di Jennings won the Daywear section of the Benson & Hedges Fashion Design Awards with this bright yellow coat and outfit. While she and Kerrie had entered the Benson & Hedges Fashion Design Awards over their years together, Di says their stuff was always a little wild for the judges.
