It's true!  We've gone to the dark side....... On Wednesday 6th September, we launched the much anticipated BLACK EDIT at a fabulous event in our beloved Woburn Walk.   Lush garlands by florist extraordinaire Fran & the Flower linked the boutique and atelier across our little street as our guests mingled, drinking delicious wine by Mirabeau and eating yummy canapés by Canababes.  Editors, journalists, friends & special guests were treated to an exclusive preview of the collection.   My lovely friends, Daisy Lowe and Millie Mackintosh managed to stop by for a glass of bubbly and both looked smokin' hot in some of the new pieces too!

After seeing my dresses transcending the world of bridal and being worn by celebrities and fashionistas alike, it was a natural step for me to delve deeper into occasion wear and explore this exciting evolution; from here, The Black Edit was born.  I had a ball revisited my archive and reinventing key styles with a striking black palette - everyone who knows me knows that I'm obsessed with wearing black so I was in heaven!  

The models wore various pieces from The Black Edit to showcase them for our guests throughout the evening and they looked like movie stars.  The glam squad, aka Amy Conway from Bobbi Brown and Edward James created the most epic hair and make up looks which I adored!  We were also lucky enough to have House of Garrard there to adorn the ladies with the most exquisite jewels, fit for royalty.  The finishing touch was the utterly fabulous collection of shoes from Malone Soulier.   

It was a superb night... The boutique was full of love and laughter and I am completely overwhelmed with the support from all of our guests including my amazing family and friends.  Thank you so much to all of the amazing suppliers who worked unbelievably hard to make the night a success and, last but by no means least, to my amazing Halfpennys.  I love you all dearly.

Love,

Kate xx
