Lunch, Ladies, Laughter and Liverpool

Dolls of Decadence does lunch with the Ladies of Liverpool

Its been a long time, since we last set our DDUK heels in the city of Liverpool and a long time, as a bullet point on the company ‘things to do’ list.  


On Friday 27th November; we ticked that off that list, as Liverpool welcomed us back- with warmth- as part of their ‘Ladies who Lunch’ Fashion and networking showcase. An event hosted by Laura Doyle and her team at My Liverpool Life events.

The event took place on the 5th floor of the gorgeous Hope St Hotel- a boutique hotel situated in Central Liverpool- over looking the autumn-grey Liverpool skyline. The room, with its private terrace affords the most wonderful views across Liverpool and the floor to ceiling windows gave added freshness to the crisp white linen, used to style the room. Completing the ambience of clean sophistication for the days matinee.

The intimate set up fuelled by champagne, high pitched laughter and fashion- saw the models strutting through diners for a up close look of the designers collections. Designers on day included: Sarvin, Anthony Yassin, Laura James Millinery, Jake Phillip Nuttall, Bijou & Vintage,  C & V Boutique and of course ourselves.

We opened the event showcasing 7 looks from our current season with the award winning collection ‘EMINENCE A/W15; all beautifully captured by Liverpool based photographer, Leigh Elliot.

Following our showcase,  we were able to enjoy the remainder of the presentations from fellow designers; before dining on a 3 course lunch. Admittedly, fine dinning also means scare quantity feeding, that’s for sure! I guess, there has to be a downside to the fabulous lifestyle….besides, we have waist lines to watch, right?

Well, at least we got  divine hand crafted chocolates & truffles for desert, provided by Robert Swinden fine chocolate!

The splendid location, where the the ‘Ladies who Lunch’ event was held.

Finishing the days event with smoochzing and networking, with our the guests and other fellow designers.
Despite a few hiccups here and there, along with one helluva journey back to Birmingham; pelting rain, coupled with strong winds and all that jazz. We certainly enjoyed our time in Liverpool; have started the dialogue for the brand and plan to be back there sooner rather, than later! 
So watch out Liverpool, we’re coming for ya!
