We at Walk in Wardrobe opened our doors once again to host an exclusive 15 Club event on the 7th December. We had a superb evening filled with bubbles, snacks, cakes and of course, sensational, show stopping dresses! The 15 Club is a group of business women in Brighton and Hove, committed to a sharing of ideas, networking and support for one another, pioneered by Sam Foster who arrived at the boutique looking glam with darling little twinkly diamantes around her eye. Guests were asked to choose a dress from the boutique and to participate in a fun fashion show competition, with glitzy hair candy and tasty prizes up for grabs! The lucky winner was Justine, who wowed the judges with her fun, flirty catwalk. Please see the slideshow for our pictures!
Thank you to all who turned up and for providing such a wonderful atmosphere, we had a great time and hope you did too! Thank you also to Stuart Butcher (www.cameyera.com) for agreeing to be our photographer for the evening and to the very dashing Dave at La Cave a Fromage (www.la-cave.co.uk), our favorite luxury cheese shop at 34-35 Western Road, Hove for providing the most gorgeously delicious cheese macaroons as a fashion show prize (I know the concept of a cheese macaroon sounds strange, but believe me, it really works!)

On the 13th November the doors of the boutique were opened to our guests for our most exciting and glamorous fashion show to date. We wanted to make this show extra special with only the most glitzy and chic dresses on the catwalk, the most stunning models and the most sensational hair and makeup!
The evening was a huge success, and we would like to say a huge thank you to: Alex and Willow from Cisco’s Karma in Brighton for doing our model’s sophisticated and trendy hairstyles and also to Ange Watson of Yawoma Makeup and Hair for doing the model’s classy and chic makeup. Thank you also to Heidi Cotton who picked the winner of our pencil dress competition and to Stuart Butcher for being our fantastic photographer on the evening!
