Michelle has upped the ante this season with a few key luxe pieces, including this soft grey jacket. The designer says that textured fabrications play a key role this season because she wanted to give her range a more luxurious feel
As she gains confidence as a fashion designer, Michelle has put more of her own stamp on this collection - even coining a new trend.
Michelle has replaced the long favoured LBD - little black dress - for a LWD - little white dress - which she has designed in different shapes and styles to suit all tastes.
The actress, who recently relocated to Essex with her TOWIE star husband, says she has used her designer know-how to curate the most flattering designs possible.
Her garments come with side panel details that she says help create illusion waists and subtly sexy thigh skimming splits.
Michelle recently tied the knot with Mark Wright, who says the pressure is on for the couple to have babies
As well as designing her latest range, Michelle has been busy filming for her upcoming TV projects, as well as enjoying married life with Mark.
Speaking on Loose Women recently, Mark said he's already getting it in the ear from his mother, Carol.
'It's hard work with the pressure of having babies,' he said.
But as the panel went on about their good looks, Mark joked: 'We're going to end up giving birth to an ugly duckling and let everyone down.'
He added: 'Aunty Debbie is the first of the sisters to become a grandmother and she's tells my mum every day that being a grandmother is so much better than being a mum.
'So now my mum's on our case. Hurry up and make it happen, I want to be a nan. I think we've got another year or two of her nagging and we'll just have to do it.
'When she gives birth, there will be 300 Wrights around her.'
