No grit, No Pearl.
Stress levels were taking on a whole other zone as the launch party for the new Jaxxon House website was looming. Sleepless nights were once again becoming the norm! Thankfully everything came together on the night and the whole team did a fantastic job 🙂 The staff in Number 3 were brilliant, they couldn’t do enough for us, we were allowed to decorate the venue however we wanted. The building is an old warehouse and it was perfect as a blank canvas to get creative with 🙂
VIP Blogger Treats
Delish boxes were made up for the event and included a mini bottle of Prossecco, handmade chocolates from http://www.trwffl.co.uk , ProNails nail varnish, L’Occitaine body wash and body lotion (handmade macaroons from http://www.cake-carousel.co.uk and gifts from the other Designers were also added later on, all pieced together in a large shiny box with velvet ribbon and fresh flowers 🙂
Hair & Make Up by The Attic
Charlotte Mitchell Johns and Marie Barnett from The Attic took on all the hair and make up by themselves (we normally have a team of about 6-8 people) they worked their butts off and the result was stunning!
Below are some photos of backstage prep and decorating the venue: taken by Sarah Jayne Webb who has also worked on a previous photoshoot here
Feeling incredibly lucky to have the best and most supportive family as I always manage to rope them into helping me with these crazy projects….the night before the show: myself, my brother, mum and hubby were all at the venue for hours on end decorating with hedgerow, wild flowers, ivy (my mum had so many twigs and leaves in her car she had to make a few trips as she couldn’t get it all in!) and lots of candles. So pleased with the result!
All of the catwalk photographs and designer’s collections will be in the next post up on Jaxxon House!
