We have been a part of this event for the past few years, and once again it was held at the beautiful Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa.
We had some of our lovely ladies and customers helping us out with a bit of modelling, for some of them it was their very first time! Take a look at some of our backstage photos and see if you recognise any faces...
Our Liz has been working with us for a few years now...but this was her very first time modelling!
Liz looked beautiful in blue, in the stork print long kimono by One Hundred Stars. This is a relatively new brand to us, we launched it in spring, and is already proving to be incredibly popular. All of the kimonos are amazing quality, and come in a range of unique prints
Our Capri Ladies! Val, Debs & Viv
Our Spring/Summer Capri collection is back following a complete sellout last year, this time in a classic monochrome print! Each piece comes in size XS/S (8-10) and L/XL (20-22), and the cropped trousers come in sizes 10-20.
Val, Debs and Viv are all wearing the Moonfleet print, and all pieces can be mixed and matched with the trousers. The collection looks cool and classic teamed with other monochrome pieces, or you can add a pop of colour, which makes it an incredibly versatile collection and you can really get the most out of each piece.
The shirt dress (left on Val) and the cropped trousers (right on Viv) are our favourite combination, and as you can see the shirt dress can also be worn open as a long jacket, over a t-shirt and trousers or a dress.
The fabric is a crushed viscose, which, as another bonus...no ironing needed!
Gail has been modelling for us for a few years now...she's a pro! More recently she's become a member of our weekend team. Here she's wearing the One Hundred Stars Decadent Throwover, another beautiful print from our latest brand addition.
This print has been one of our bestsellers, the boho style floral print includes rich tones of chocolate brown and caramel, with a charcoal grey base. This is the perfect choice to take right through to autumn. Gail has styled it with a black b.young dress (in-store exclusive) and the Tamaris leather crossover sandals.
Our Liz & her Beautiful Daughter Emma!
Our Liz was also modelling with her daughter Emma, who looked a vision in our Malissa J dress! The dress has adjustable button straps, and fits from size 10-12 to 18-20. It also includes a fabric tie belt if you wanted to bring in in more at the waist.
The dress is available in black and mushroom, and makes an easy option for a day dress, and it can be easily dressed up for a warm holiday evening!
As an added bonus...both dresses have pockets!
Our Liz did it again! Looking absolutely fabulous and effortlessly glam, in head to toe Malissa J. The abstract tiger print is one of our favourite prints from Malissa J this season, giving that added touch of glamour in each piece.
The off the shoulder bardot top is a flattering shape, and is perfect with a statement necklace! This style is available in several prints and colours.
The trousers are now a staple piece in all of our wardrobes! These are the Malissa J fisherman trousers, and they come in several colours and prints. We loved them as soon as we saw them...how can you just have the one colour!
This print was the first to catch our eye at the buying meeting, available in hot pink and lime green, it gives off the perfect summer vibe.
The bardot top is paired perfectly with a statement Trinny necklace by Envy, and we've styled it with the matching pleated skirt. The beauty of these pieces is that, although it is a striking print, they can also be worn with white or blue jeans, or a plain tee, to get the most out of each piece!
We took two rails full of our latest collections and in-store exclusives! As well as a collection of accessories...because there's always time for shopping!
The room was stunning, decorated beautifully, and each guest had a goodie back on their table.
There was no catwalk or platform, which meant that our ladies could walk around each table and everyone could get a closer look at the outfits. This gave it a much more personal and intimate feel, which we always love to provide at our shows.
A huge thank you to everyone who organised, supported and attended the event. We will continue to donate 10% of all sales from customers at the event to Nicola's Fund.
On to the next one...
