Thank you so much to our friends and customers who came along on 12th July 2014 to help us celebrate our First Birthday!
Many thanks to Ema Doherty www.exactmakeupart.com for her excellent late-1960s make up demonstration; our model, Clare (more used to painting models than being one!) looked wonderful and, if you look in our Cocktail Dress category, you can see, in more detail, the 1960s dress she modelled on the day. Ema put the 1960s look she was creating into a social and historical context and it was fascinating!I’d love to ask Ema to return and do the same for us with a different decade. Any ideas? Do email me with your thoughts and we’ll see if Ema can repeat the event on the most popular one! email@example.com
As well as fitting on some new stock items, customers were treated to some of Gary’s very own toots and some even had a go pressing his paddles! One particular lady really gave Gary a run for his money while her lovely daughter modelled one of our Horrockses dresses.
We could not let the day go by without the odd tipple or two and customers enjoyed a lovely Stardust Years Cocktail, created by Gary’s fair hand. Yes, one or two ladies reported having wobbled home that day!
