Above - the exquisite Candice De Ville who hosted the most beautiful day for a roomful of ladies and gentlemen at Como House, presenting the fashions we all love from the mid 20th century. Everything from Dior's 'New Look' to fairytale prom dresses were modelled by a group of sophisticated, stunning women (I guess I include myself in that description !!) - it was a day of elegance, beauty and above all, fun....for the guests and for all of us 'backstage' ! Here are a few shots to give you a snippet of the array of darling garments we wore.....

That's me above - looking a tad tired..... unfortunately, we were nearing the end of school term and middle of winter, and I was feeling generally life exhausted .....but what an amazing dress this was ! The beading was overwhelmingly beautiful and the weight.....lets just say that it required a heavy duty coat hanger !!
Can I just say an enormous thankyou to Candice for including me in such a wonderful event !! It was a thrill, a delight, a pleasure and an honour to have been amongst such stunning women - and Candice, you are one ever amazing woman ! Mmwwwaaahhh !
