Business Diary Entry!

Out of the blue came the potential for another pop up  shop! But this one is looking to be a bit different to the others! Basically for one week we will be a shop within a fashion shop. I am very excited about this and we have lots of exciting ideas in the pipeline for this very central London pop up shop!

Stay tuned for more news and updates about this!

 

Take a look inside (if you’re not in London!)

If you are in London this week you should definitely pop into our pop up shop In Space. Products and brands you won’t find elsewhere from four companies that normally trade online.

For those of you not able to make it – here’s a couple of pics of the space:

If you don’t know the area this is a very well known area due to it’s Sunday flower market.

The street has become a haven for independent boutiques. The majority of the boutiques don’t open until the weekends, this is when everyone descends on the area.

We have been given the opportunity to have a retail space at 95 Columbia Road. We are sharing with three other online based brands to create a pop up lifestyle store called In Space.

Come to 95 Colombia Road and see Kerry O’Brine Womens Wear, Bruno + Bean, Indian Bicycle Shop and London Mummy.

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:

No time to stop yet!

Things have gone a bit crazy here in the studio. Hopefully Friday I will find some time to do a massive clear up.

No sooner had I got back from the Pop Up Piccadilly shop, it was full on with this Thursdays evening event! The silk jersey fabric arrived back from the brilliant Insley & Nash print and dye studio, dyed in a fabulous fresh crunchy apple green shade. Quickly made myself a dress out of the silk jersey to wear tomorrow evening!

If you’ve ever organised an event, it takes a lot of hard work and persistence! Anyway, it is just around the corner now and everything has been falling into place. One last push and we will be ready.

If anybody is still interested in coming tomorrow evening to the Colourful Evening in Bloomsbury London there are a couple of tickets still available. You will need to get in there soon as the ticket sales close at 4pm.

Pictures will be taken and I will do a blog post after I’ve had a rest!!

Women’s London Networking Evening in Colour!

You may or may not know that I run a clothing company. So the big company announcement today is that I have launched the tickets for our September event!

colour-eve-graphic-fb

The evening is for women from a whole range of industries and professions to come together in London and enjoy an evening of networking and personal consultations.

The theme of the evening is colour which is such a broad and interesting topic. The colours you wear effect the way that people perceive you, it can affect your mood and it can make you look amazing or drab.

Around that them of colour we have selected different areas for the evening:

  • Makeup: Focusing on eyeshadow colour
  • Hosiery Finding the best natural colour match for your skin
  • Hair: what is the best hair colour for you
  • Image: What is one colour that looks amazing on you
  • Clothes: Allowing you to select exactly the colour you want for your dress

The brands included in the event are:

Makeup WORKS: A British makeup brand who have been making inroads on the makeup market. They are targeted at mature skin; the colours and shades are great and in particular the products are matte. Makeup WORKS will be providing 10 minute slots to discuss eyeshade colours and if you want, they can try it out on you.

FALKE: A premium hosiery brand. Leading the way in hosiery they have a new exciting range called Perfect Skin Colours. A consultant will be at our event with samples in hand to guide you through choosing the right skin colour for your legs.

FOUR: Leading hair colourists voted ‘Best for Colour’ by the Tatler hair guide 2013 will be providing 10 minute consultations. If you’re unsure about your hair colour or you need some advice then this is for you.

Inside Out Image: What colour would be best for you to wear to work? What colours suit your skin tone? Joanna Gaudoin from Inside Out Image will be starting the evening off by introducing us to the world of colour and then will be providing one to one mini consultations.

and then there is my company: Kerry O’Brine Womens Wear: We design and produce clothing in my UK studio. The silk Line is our main collection and this provides women the chance to choose exactly what they want: choose your style from our six dresses, choose your colour and choose your sleeve length.

I’ll be launching our new colour dye to order service some new colours for Autumn Winter and some other things too! For now, that’s all I will say about this because you’ll have to come to the launch to find out more!!

The Academy: The venue is equally exciting as the line-up! We have the whole of the ground floor in The Academy in Bloomsbury, London for the evening of 12th September. If it’s a lovely sunny evening you’ll be able to network outside in the courtyard or have a drink in the conservatory! The 4* hotel has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Enjoy the evening with complimentary drinks available on arrival and canapes included in the ticket price. I always insist on food…. who can network after work on an empty stomach? Not me!!

All the women involved are supportive and friendly individuals. We love to network and support other women running their own business, working their way up the career ladder and getting the balance between a high flying career and home life.

If you are based in and around London and you are interested and a woman then please join us.
