Fashion Show at Chepstow Winter Ladies Day

My second Fashion show was in a collaboration with no less than 11 Designers and Fashion Companies, at Chepstow Racecourse on Winter Ladies Day. My boyfriend Dave Dent co-ordinated the show, bringing together a fantastic creative team of 14 models, including London Fashion Week Regulars like Mila Alex, and Sarah Smith one of the Amazon actresses in Wonder Woman. Actor Martin Challinor was modelling for Crombie with Matt Pryce and Paul MIller, and jockey Nick Scholfield. The Hair and Make up was provided by Sara Szpak, Gemma Paul, Charlotte Rebecca Bailey and Jo Eatherington.

The other Fashion Designers were headed by Crombie, who sponsored the show which was lovely for us small designers and I am very appreciative. To show on the runway with such a heritage brand was a great honour. The quality of their clothing both fabrics and tailoring is beautiful.

Gill Harvey, the designer behind Eliza Jane Howell of Connaught St in London also showed, along with Gabriella Gambetta, Lee Lapthorne the Vogue writer, artist and fashion designer, Jeffery West shoes, Toggi, millinery by Pippa Eastman and Caroline Nicholls, Gill Clement jewellery, Emmy shoes London, and Le Cashmere.

The day had a part vintage theme and there were also vintage vehicles including WWII jeeps and their owners dressedin WWII officer uniforms ...popular with the ladies! And there was live music from The Polka Dots! So it was a fantastic atmosphere. One of the Fashion shows which were before and between the racing, was inspired by Bladerunner as it unified elements of vintage and avant garde and all designers were included. Was fabulous!

Fashion photographers John Bucknall, Paul Cornish, and Lance Mason were the official photographers. We can't show many of the beautiful images as they are submitted for magazine

editorial but here are a few as a sneak preview:
