Summer Winter Love

Hello, Bernie here! It has been a while since I’ve posted so thought I would update you all on the brilliance of AW11. Last time I had just finished the look books and after a few changes and drafts we all decided on the best layout and got them back to the office in a couple of days, very exciting stuff and they look gorgeous! 

Once they arrived we very quickly sent them out again – envelopes, press release and address stickers galore. Then the waiting game, trying to work out when they would arrive with the magazines and who would be starting the AW11 shoot call ins, it is very strange to be excited about Harris Tweed coats and leather gloves when its so sunny but that’s just the way the fashion year goes!

Anyway, everyone loved the look books, the AW11 shoots have started and our samples are all over the world being shot. With the tweeds, leathers, liberty dresses and variety of accessories whatever the shoot we have something to fit in! Of course SS11 is still going strong and has been so successful but it really is very pleasing when you have a whole collection of new beautiful things to work with.  We have some very nice features coming up in September and I will get them onto here for you all to see asap!

Tunnel Of Love

Great time had by all at the British Heart Foundation Tunnel of Love party on Tuesday!

In a refreshing change to your average sit-down-and-donate dinner this was more of a surreal funfair with a hoopla, rubber duck ‘bobbing’, throw the toupee on the Humpty Dumpty and oddly a girl dressed as a latrine. 

The auction was a great success. Our wonderful Dan Baldwin donated a hand finished print of his wonderful Love in The Garden painting (which incidentally I own the original of!) and we donated a scarf to match. Yoo Moo frozen yogurts were enjoyed as we ran around wining fabulous fashion prizes and bidding for art, dresses and designer dinners. Rocking evening which raised nearly 100k to help mend broken hearts.

The Royal Wedding

Danielle here!

My family came over all the way from America for the Royal Wedding last week and I was roped into camping out with them in front of Westminster Abbey from 2am on the Friday! Actually, I had an amazing time and got a great view of all the pre-service festivities, the visitors arriving and the Royals being driven to their super special entrance and then the procession back to the Palace. Of course this included the newly weds William and Kate!

As you can see from the pictures, we were really close to all the activity and it totally made up for the early start and all the standing around and waiting.

When's the next one?
