Brick and Mortar

Our lovely Margaret, is wearing the deep black, off the shoulder, rose pattern long ball gown.

‘Hi Joanna

This email is well overdue, but I wanted to thank you for your help with a dress for the charity ball I attended in November. The dress attracted so many compliments, both from friends and from people I didn’t know – on one occasion a young man came up to me and said his girlfriend wanted to tell me what a stunning dress I had on, but wasn’t able to as she had a bad case of hiccups, so she had sent him to tell me lol! Many people said it was the best dress at the ball. I really enjoyed wearing the dress, and I told everyone who commented where I had got it from, so I hope I have generated some new business for you. I will definitely be back for next year’s ball gown.

Have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards


Raft and Walking With The Wounded

Lavinia attended the Raft and Walking With The Wounded, Charity Gala Dinner, back in November at The Hurlingham Club.

She wore our famous black one shoulder floor length evening dress.

Elton John Ball

This is the charming Brenda. She was invited last week to Elton John’s prestigious annual summer ball, held in Windsor, where money is raised for Elton’s AIDS Foundation.

She looks an absolute knock-out in our navy heavy jersey, capped shoulder, floor length gown.


Pretty in Red

This looker of a lady is wearing our favourite silk, tight fitting, deep red cocktail dress to a dinner.

Classic design, yet very elegant and ladylike, just like our Alex.

Children’s Butterfly Ball

The Children’s Butterfly Ball took place not so long ago, and what a good cause it is. Our smiley lady, Mary Anne attended in our purple embellished capped sleeved evening gown.

I bet she made many heads turn!


Charity Ball at The Grosvenor House

This gorgeous looking lady went to a Charity Ball last week at the Grosvenor House. In aid for the charity,  The Children’s Trust 30th Anniversary Ball.

“I want to thank you so much for your personalised, attentive service. You helped me find exactly the right dress for me, and the fact that you were able to tailor it to me was a wonderful extra benefit. I will definitely come back to you when the need next arises, and will also tell my friends.” Maria McHugh.

Winter White Gala

600 hundred guests embarked on Kensington Palace for their charity ball, Winter Whites Gala, which took place on Tuesday 26th November. An event which raises money for the charity, Centrepoint, for homeless young people. An astounding 1million was raised on the night.

Celebrity guests included, Prince William, Jon Bon Jovi, and Taylor Swift. This handsome trio pictured, were lucky enough to attend this event, and boy did they enjoy it! The two ladies hired their whole outfits from us, and we were more than happy to help make them sparkle for their winter ball.

Boodles Boxing Ball

The biennial boxing ball – The black-tie event on everyone’s lips, took place on Saturday 21st at the Grosvenor House Hotel. The show is put on by director, James Amos. It’s the only venue of its kind in London to stage such an event, that’s just over 1000 people!

Yes, it’s boxing, but boxing by amateurs, for charity. The proceedings are generally divided between charities.

If you’re lucky enough to find yourself strolling down the red carpet to see this glamorous affair, you may well be surprised by how up market this really is.

Some of Saturday night’s guests included, Prince Harry (of course), Princess Eugenie, Pippa Middleton and Zara Philips who wore her dress incredibly well. Plus other A-List celebrities attended, all dressed absolutely top to tail in what was suitably their best for this event.
