It was a delight to be invited to a fashion show event at LK Bennett in the High Street, Winchester.  It was an evening which was featured as part of the prestigious Winchester Fashion Week and lots of fun was had by all trying on the Marvellous Millinery and planning outfits for Royal Ascot!

How lovely to be featured as ‘Man of the Month’ in March’s edition of Hampshire Life’s Style section, commenting about my spring/summer collection and my unusual use of winter velvets for the trims.  I’m using the fabric in a delicate feminine way by including them with silk dupion for a light pretty look in pastel shades.  Please contact me for more information!

The Winchester Hotel

Charity Fashion Show in aid of Naomi House

The evening was called Ladies Night Out and the quality of the performance was fantastic.  The guests were treated to a full evening of fashion and make-up with dresses being shown from LK Bennett and hats and accessories by Marvellous Millinery with a make-up demonstration given on stage just after the interval.

Delicious canapes and nibbles were served through the evening with plenty of bubbles and a very warm reception from the owners of the hotel - a thoroughly entertaining evening was enjoyed by all!  The evening raised getting on for £1000 for the local charity Naomi House.

I was particularly proud of the Marvellous Models that I had asked to show off my designs - we took this candid shot just before the performance began and they all looked Marvellous on the catwalk.

Thank you again ladies!
