Pink Taffeta

Today Lisa and I have spent the day rummaging around under piles of pink Taffeta.
While this is not entirely unusual for us, todays Taffeta  is destined for something different.
 Tommorrow we are showing 6 looks in a charity fashion event held at G.H.Q
unfortunately, Lisa can't go, but I am really looking forward to it. You never know what you are walking into when you agree to do these events, some are a lot more organised than others.
I once went to one where the models had to change in a garded shed ! although, admittedly the organisers had tarted up the shed by pinning  tin foil and leopard fun fur on the walls, I can honestly say it was not one of my more glamorous moments.
 Its all worth it when the girls walk out though, I am allways nervous/excited for a couple of hours before, especially because my designs are often complicated to put on, there's  the worry that someone will come on with it laced up badly, or upside down ,or something (this has actually happened).
Fortunately, some of my pals will be on hand to administer emergency gin & tonic, should it be required

Anyway... here is a lovely picture of a Taffeta Frock from the last show (which incidently was very well organised, not a shed in sight)
 Its not pink, I am not going to show you THAT one untill after the event.
If you are in the area, come on down, its all for a good cause.(starts at 7pm)
