The first fashion event on the Dolls of Decadence 2017 calendar, took place on the 3rd March and saw us back in the North west to showcase for the 2nd time at the ‘Ladies who lunch’ Fashion and networking event, hosted by Laura Doyle and the My Liverpool life team.

The 6th event of this nature took place at the luxurious Malmaison hotel in Liverpool- an eleven storey building located alongside the Princes dock in the city centre; a stunning combination of gothic and Manhattan style architecture creating a perfect ambience of decadence mixed with metropolitan chic, so basically us- in a bricks and mortar version!

It’s been almost 18 months since our work first, sashayed through the intimate settings of the Ladies who Lunch fashion and networking events and it was so nice to be back again; catching up with some of the ladies we’d met previously, whilst networking and soaking up the Liverpudlian vibe that we cant lie-we’ve slightly fallen in love with.

We dined on a freshly made tomato soup starter, with sea bass/chicken main (The sea bass was the bomb-diggy by the way- could have quite easily ate a lot more of it) We finished with cupcakes by Debz Cakes and delicious Petit Fours from The Macoron lounge for dessert. Yum!

The intimacy of the event always allows for all featured designers and exhibitors to be memorable; owning their space to engage directly to their potential customers and target audience. Designers and exhibitors at the latest event included: The boudoir book, Jake Nuttall Fashion, Wongs fine jewellery, Kitty Butler designer dress agency amongst others.

The response to our collection was hugely positive; the comments and nods of approval resonating throughout the room- hashtag brush our shoulders off. All this, along with the fab editorial shots we’ve accumulated thanks to the events photography by Zed photography, has left us feeling elated about the years line up of events, we are involved in and what we have to share with you this season!

£500 was raised for the supported charity The Isabella trust which aims to support parents and carers of children with autistic spectrum disorder and/or sensory processing difficulties.
