New studio launch party!

We had a successful launch party last Wednesday, to celebrate the move to our new premises!
We did move last November, but we have been so busy getting the studio looking fabulous and perfect, that we only just managed to hold a party.
It was such a fun night with delicious food and drinks from Simone Logue catering, amazing music from the Accent strings Trio and, of course all our guests!
All the guests we invited were our friends, staff and industry - people who are special to us in their own way, and we had so many of them coming along to celebrate with us, which was wonderful.
I have some images from the party, as well as some images of our space looking pristine and perfect before everyone arrived to show all of you where all our gorgeous Karen Willis Holmes gowns and creations are made. There are quite a few pictures this time - enjoy!

Our front door with one of my favourite couture gowns, 'Gabriella'

Our office - where I envision all the beautiful gowns and designs...

The Workroom - where my fabulous staff make my visions a reality.

The Couture studio - where some of the gowns end up. This is where I meet with couture clients to show them (or design with them) their dream dress!

The kitchen - where we all sit for a break and a cuppa.

At our launch party, we had catering organised by Simone Logue. They provided us with the delicious canapes on the night, and a range of alcohol to keep all of us happy. The wait staff were all lovely. Here, they pose next to the perfectly set 'bar' before the guests arrive.

On the night, Jonathon from 'Hatmaker' generously agreed to bring along some marvelous head pieces. We had them on display on one of our big tables and they were just perfect - absolute works of art. 

We were entertained with a mix of classical and popular music by string trio 'Accent Strings'. Their music was wonderful and all three of them were just gorgeous.

Thank you all and I hope you enjoyed all the pictures!

Love Karen and Geoff.
