BAFTAS Follow Up

Julianne Moore last night won the Bafta for Best Actress for her role in the drama, Still Alice. She wore a long sleeved, floor length choker neck scarlet coloured dress.

Who says redheads can’t wear red?!


It’s that time of year again, where award winning actors and actresses are credited for their performances throughout the year. But I can’t bypass this blog-post without a mention of the glamorous, show stopping, jaw dropping, evening dresses that grace the red carpet every February. It’s black tie at its finest. And we are lucky to say, we have some of our own attending this prestigious event.

Keep on the lookout for photos from the event.

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

They had the whole of Warwick Racecourse for the occasion. That sure is something to dress to the high 9’s for!

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.

Lady in Blue

This pretty lady attended her friend’s wedding in London. She was after something long and glamorous for the occasion. So we kitted her out with this beautiful long, 3 layer tulle gown, with a-line embellishment.

We think we Monica looks splendid, and I’m sure she felt as good as she looks!

London Fitness Fashion Show

Patricia, the lady on the right, is one of our regular customers.

She had a super exciting event to attend, the London Fitness Fashion Show at the 02 recently and see came third place.

Of course, she is wearing our knock out gold strapless dress, a true winner in our eyes!

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!


Being Cinderella for the Evening

Our beautiful Annette (pictured in the middle) wearing our full skirted navy ball-gown with gem embellishment.

She had her very formal end of year white tie ball to attend at Oxford – She looks absolutely knock out here!

Night at the V&A

Anna, (on the left in the picture) hired this black and gold lace top with embellishment, and then accessorised it with this tulle black scarf for the evening – how very formal they all look!

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.

Marvellous Monte Carlo

This lucky dress got to go to Monte Carlo would you believe. Snezana wore it to the Angel Film Awards – Monaco International Film Festival 2013, over the weekend just gone.

And isn’t she wearing so well? If only she could of taken me too 🙂
