Women of Wales Luncheon In Aid of Save The Children

Every year we are invited to showcase our statement collection of millinery creations at the Women of Wales luncheon in aid of Save the Children. This year the event was held at the Swalec Stadium and the theme was theatre. Therefore we chose to present our most spectacular pieces which were modelled during the event by students of Howells school. 

As always we had a great time and look forward to the next time, 
here are some of the images from the day >>

Mad Hatters Tea Party At The Angel Hotel

Model wearing a stunning pure silk hand pleated dress by Charles & Patricia Lester

At the beginning of May we will be collaborating with The Angel Hotel in Abergavenny to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. 

The Angel will be transformed ready to host high tea with a difference for one weekend only. For the event we ask that guests wear their most colourful hat from their collection. If you don't have a hat to wear then a visit to our cross street store is a must. From our vast array of classic and contemporary styles we will be sure to have something to suit your style. 

Five guests, who will be chosen at random prior to the event, will be given the chance to wear one of Alison's most spectacular millinery creations. 

Throughout the month of May we will also be giving preferential rates on purchases in store for tea party guests on presentation of their ticket.
