It’s late and I have only just got back from presenting at a Style Event in LK Bennett Birmingham, so this will just be a short one!
Here are a few snaps which the lovely girls in LK Bennett took for me earlier as I was editing the pieces from the collection about which I wanted to speak this evening.
The event was in aid of the Marie Curie Big Build Appeal and specifically we were raising money for a family room at a new hospice. When built, it will enable families to stay together whilst their loved ones are being cared for. The target is £100,000 and tonight the £40 000 mark was reached, which was fantastic. So many give up so much time for free that it is mind blowing.
LK Bennett provided fizz, canapes and a 20% discount on the night and I gave a 20 minute or so presentation, which people seemed to really enjoy (either that or they were just being polite).
The final figures for LK Bennett were fantastic. After my presentation they sold £3,500 worth of clothes and all but one piece came from those I had edited out of their collection and spoken about – which was great to hear.
I didn’t wear this on the evening but instead was lucky enough to borrow an outfit from LK Bennett (photos of that to follow too). Here I am wearing my new Primark coated jeans, Zara boots (which I haven’t taken off for many days now) and a New Look denim shirt.
