This post comes to you whilst I’m sitting in a cafe in Duke of York Square, London, I’m here to see the Mademoiselle Privé exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery.
So last night I had lots of fun helping out – what I didn’t tell you in yesterday’s post was how poorly I’ve been this week, I’ve had no voice! I was a little concerned they may not let me help, but all was fine!
So the key message I took from Grace last night was to find your STYLE DNA, this isn’t about following fashion trends, it’s about understanding your style and to dress for yourself so that you enjoy the whole process – she also strongly believes that clothes should not be kept and stored, they should be worn, which is the ethos behind her independent boutique for vintage clothing – Graceland in Hitchin. I’ve not yet been, but I will be now!
This dress is Alexander McQueen and was the welcoming dress at Welcome to Graceland, part of St Albans Fashion Week, in the stunning kitchen showroom of poggen pohl in London Road.
With plenty of Prosecco and canapés for all the guests, this was a fun night for ladies, perusing the dresses of both The Pretty Dress Company in collaboration with Immodesty Blaize, who was also at the event, and Grace’s Pre-loved collection of some very expensive but absolutely fabulous dresses.
Here’s Grace (right) with Immodesty Blaize, a burlesque model, just google her, she is so beautiful and makes a big statement for all curvaceous women!!
Here’s the rack showcasing all the lovely dresses from Immodesty in partnership with The Pretty Dress Conpany, prices start from £95.
So tonight, I will be Front Row with my mother in law Carol, at the fashion show in St Albans Cathedral, the first of two nights for St Albans Fashion Week. I know that they will be showcasing clothes from Graceland, Simply French and we will also get to see Caroline Jones who is currently raising money for Cancer in aid of her mother, she has been dressing daily in charity clothes, so it will be fab to see what comes down the catwalk!
