Great British Brands Week 24th – 29th October

Forget The Great British Bake Off Finale, half term week is all about celebrating our Great British Designers and UK made dresses.

As well as our very own local Caroline Parkes who is literally minutes away we are pleased to announce we are now stockists of another UK made label, Alan Hannah, a well-established designer with over 30 years’ experience.

Millie AH‘Alan Hannah’ (or should I say Marguerite who actually designs the dresses, and Alan who runs back office) are a formidable husband and wife duo who run their production studio from North London, employing over 30 staff, many of whom have been with them since they started.

All their designs are made in Enfield and meticulously overseen by Marguerite herself. The gowns are lovely to wear and I particularly love the sparkle on ‘Astor’ and ‘Cornelia’ – all hand beadwork which is so tasteful, fine and elegant, giving you that touch of sparkle but keeping it classic and sophisticated.

The new addition is a great complement to our existing Caroline Parkes dresses whose designs are made just outside Newbury at her home- classic romantic lace and organza styles with fuller skirts and the finest Belgian laces.

To celebrate the launch of this great new addition to the store, we are offering 10% off all our UK made dresses, Alan Hannah & Caroline Parkes.

So, whetcake 1her you are a teacher (free during half term week and searching for your dress) or someone who values UK made quality, book your appointment today.

Oh, and as a ‘Great British Bake Off’ fan myself, there will of course be cake!
