Post Pink Party

A few pics from last nights charity event with Ellisons Solicitors. The evening was to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. The evening themed on pink was a big success with the raffle raising £500! The total raised on the evening by everyone was £700.

We were in the lovely location of the Wivenhoe House Hotel.
There was other companies with stalls at the evening one of whom was a friend of mine who does very nice cakes (Pause for Torte). These are just some she made for the evening:

What are you doing in the studio?

The Studio Diary

At the moment in the studio we are working on a lot of new products. New fabric has been ordered which is very exciting. We made the decision not to go to Premiere Vision this year as we found what we needed in the London Textile Fair. This was the first time I had visited the London Textile Fair and I enjoyed the more relaxed atmosphere and the lack of walls around each company.

When you go to Premiere Vision unless you know the companies it can be tricky to determine if they are the right company for you (even after doing preparation with the descriptions/website beforehand). Until you venture into the enclosed areas, you just don’t know and then it can be a bit uncomfortable when you realise it’s not the right fabrics!!

Not going to Premiere Vision has also saved a bit of money on Paris, although I am going to Paris for a social visit next week! I am looking forward to this and we have been creating a huge list of things we want to do in the four days we are there! I think it will need to be narrowed down a bit.

Back to the studio. So whilst we wait on the new fabric we are making sure all the patterns are ready and toiled. Then we will be working on some limited edition and show pieces!

There has been some talk that the studio will be moving, but not far. It will provide a lot more space and be easier to organise! At the moment the shelves are under the cutting desk, which is a little awkward when you’re scrabbling around on your knees trying to get a specific book!

There is the possibility that another Pop Up Shop will come about soon in central London. We shall see!

Watch this space for more developments.

Don’t Forget To Give it Some Lippy

YesJust thought I’d do a quick morning share as I get ready this morning for my PR meeting!Yes 5

I love red lipstick!

There are so many shades out there to choose from. I’m pretty convinced there is a good shade of red for everyone!!

I think it’s a shade that means business – don’t mess with me. It’s strong and powerful: women embrace your red shade.

I think if you don’t want to over do it with red in the work environment you can layer up the colour. One sheer layer for work and then add to it for the evening.

Lisa Eldridge gives us some tips on how to create the perfect red lips in an online video.

At Refinery29 they have uncovered some of the best shades for every skin tone.

Afternoon Macaron Meeting Makes Business Sense

business, meeting, dress, macaronI had a lovely business meeting today. Spent a long time chatting, drinking coffee and eating Macarons in Laduree!! Yay, they are so tasty. In the pics I have a raspberry one and a chocolate one. In the middle of the raspberry one it is literally a raspberry jam which is yummy.

We got some work done in between the munching!
