Following the great success of last year’s summer soiree and Christmas shopping event, we are pleased to be opening our doors once again for canapés, cocktails and a spot of late night shopping . This time we will be celebrating some of the wonderful and unique female –owned Brighton labels that are currently on display in our lovely Seven Dials lingerie boutique as well as on our website.
The event takes place from 5pm till 8pm on Tuesday 14th August 2018 and will be raising money for The Girl’s Network (www.thegirlsnetwork.org.uk) - a London based charity whose mission is to inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a network of positive female role models.
Jemma French – owner and designer at Toba Jewellery - will be joining us for a second year to celebrate the launch of her latest collection. Toba's distinctive style is subtle, sophisticated minimalism delivered in a cool, natural colour palette. Each piece is meticulously constructed utilising wrapping and knotting techniques and only the best quality materials including semi precious stones, fresh water pearls, sterling silver and fine plated findings. Each item is proudly handmade in Brighton.
Sophie Berry – owner and designer at Sassi Swimwear – will be on hand to help you find the best swimwear for your shape and needs. When designing the collection, Sophie worked closely with different women of all shapes and sizes and has overseen every step of production to assure each piece is made to fit and flatter real women. Sassi Swimwear is designed in Brighton, made in Britain then delicately hand-beaded in Bombay - making it completely unique to the market.
Lianne Eve – owner and illustrator at Amourette – will be showcasing her latest art prints along with a stunning range of handmade cotton eyemasks that were produced as a collaboration between the designer and Ayten Gasson. Amourette is a Brighton based illustrator and designer, and graduate of the Brighton University Illustration BA course. Working primarily in pencil - occasionally painting and photography - with a recent focus on pattern, her work is motif-based and takes inspiration from the aesthetics of vintage decadence, the balance of light and dark, female and androgynous sensuality, as well as other art forms such as ballet, erotic literature and vintage fashion.
Ayten Gasson will also be launching their new silk lingerie and nightwear collection that has been handmade in the small studio space within their boutique. Come and see the wonderful and unique way each piece has been made and the beautiful vintage laces and English made trims which are on display.
A raffle will be held on the night where one lucky person will win a spectacular star prize from all four labels. All money raised will be going directly to The Girl’s Network.
