What’s happening at Walk in Wardrobe

WiW Charity Fashion Show 29th October 2013

After several weeks organising our charity fashion evening and showing our AW13 collections in the boutique, we were thrilled to have such an over whelming turn out on the 29th October, everyone enjoyed the fashion extravaganza.  We aimed to make this fashion evening super glamorous and glitzy, and we are thrilled to report that our event was described by guests as ‘Walk in Wardrobe’s best fashion show to date, the atmosphere was buzzing!’.

Guests were entertained with live singer Aneesa Chaudhry, we enjoyed luxury canapés courtesy of La Cave Fromage, sparkling wine and goody bags with treats from us and My Salon Looks.  Alongside the fashion show was a charity raffle in aid of Chestnut Tree House with a fabulous selection of prizes from local businesses such as hair straighteners from My Salon Looks, a cheese and wine evening at La Cave a Fromage, a training session with MissFit, a massage from Tranquility in the City, luxury pillows from the Red Bed Co, a print from the Naked Eye Gallery and of course, a Victoria Beckham style pencil dress from Walk in Wardrobe.

A few words from the proprietor Katherine Tanswell: ‘We were thrilled with the reception we had from the fashion show, we were packed to full capacity and really pleased with the generosity of our guests and raffle donors who showed massive support to both the boutique and the Chestnut Tree House Charity”.

A huge thank you to our models who gave up their time to do the fashion show. We were lucky to have My Salon Looks create the models hair and SJE Make-up who gave the models glamorous and sparkly look for the show. Thank you to all our guests who attended the fashion evening, we look forward to seeing you at our next event! A comment from one guest was “we need a bigger boutique to get every one in!”

Always leave them wanting more is what we say.

A snippet of what’s in store for 2013 at Walk in Wardrobe

I would just like to start this post by wishing you all a very Happy Belated New Year!  We have so many exciting projects in store for this year; there are two in particular I just can’t help but chatter about!

Project 1: out with the old (but still GORGEOUS dresses!), in with the new!


Would you BELIEVE that this dress is on sale for £59.99?!

Our first project of the year was to hold the biggest (and might I add BEST!)
January sale we’ve ever had, with our top quality brands such as Forever Unique at ‘you’re robbing us blind’ prices starting at just £45!  Please click here to see the range of sale dresses we currently have (and don’t leave it too late, once they’re gone, they’re gone!).

Our sale items are being replaced with our new, glitzy and glamorous prom dresses.  It came as no surprise to us to see some very organised prom girls in late December looking for their sparkly dresses for the biggest night of their teen years.  We can guarantee that all eyes will be on the girls who are wearing Walk in Wardrobe dresses on the big night, who could possibly force their eyes away from such dazzle?

Project 2: a brand new upgraded website to rival all others!

Working on the new website has created so much buzz and excitement amongst our team (as well as a lot of hard work!).  Our new website will make it easier to hire online (including the ability to check date availability), purchase online, keep up to date with our fashion show events, style forecasts and of course, our blog.  You will also be able to easily share the products you love on your favourite social media sites such as Pinterest (to follow us on Pinterest: www.pinterest.com/walkinwardrobe/).  There will also be a separate resale section for customers to resell their pre-loved Walk in Wardrobe items.   Most importantly, there will also be promotional codes for regular and loyal customers to get fantastic discounts!

The photo shoot for the new website happened last Saturday, and we would just like to say a big thank you to the models who will be featured on the website, firstly the highly experienced Lindsay Fergusson who once again delivered top quality posing and also to Kady Knight, a new, up and coming model, who did a fantastic job on her first big photo shoot.  Thank you also to our photographer Stuart Butcher (www.cameyera.com, Twitter: @stuartbutcher1).  This was our best photo shoot to date, so all you have to do is keep your eyes peeled to see the changeover!  www.walk-in-wardrobe.co.uk
