What a week! May is the month for buying new collections with three different weekends away in Barcelona, Birmingham and London to view new collections for 2018. You won't be disappointed with what is coming into store for 2018, lots of crepes, separates, clean cut lines and sleeves is on trend for next season!
In the middle of our busy May we had a very exciting guest arrive in from New York!! Hayley Paige visited the boutique to help brides find their dream dress, it was such an exciting time for us!!! Hayley was an absolute dream, such a down to earth, lovely girl who loved Northern Ireland and the charm of Hillsborough and our pretty boutique. She also loved meeting all our brides, many of whom went home happy to have found their dream Hayley Paige wedding dress.
We threw a cocktail party on the roof top of The Merchant Hotel, on Hayley's last night in Belfast. It was a fabulous evening where style academy models showcased Hayley's latest collections and local designer Deborah K Designs styled her fabulous headpieces alongside them. Canapés and cocktails were served while the fabulous Rhythm and Fury sang. Guests were welcome to help themselves to a sweetie table, unicorn 🦄 decorated cupcakes made by Lily Pink Bakery and a selfie table with props provided to create some fun amongst the guests. We invited past and present Hayley Paige brides, press, bloggers and any potential brides who were interested. Hayley mingled with the crowd, chatting, laughing and taking selfies with everyone in the room. Angel photography and film where in attendance to capture the evening perfectly, we hope you like the video they created as much as we do!
Dublin blogger, Faces by Grace interviewed Hayley in front of the crowd asking her questions about her latest collections, future plans, work out regime to name a few. Hayley then picked her best dressed for the evening and the lucky winner Emma was given a fabulous prize of £150 Candy Plum voucher with personal shopping in store for 4, makeup application by Lauren's Beauty Rooms, St Tropez tan by Beverley's Beauty Parlour, a £30 for Shauna McAuley Hair and £40 voucher for hair extensions with Luscious Locks. There were also spot prizes kindly given by The Merchant Hotel for Champagne Afternoon for 2 won by he beautiful Sasha, Kerstate Hair Products kindly given by Shauna McAuley Hair won by Beverly and Hayley very kindly agreed to a signed sketch which was won by Rachel.
We had a fabulous time with Hayley and we hope this is just the beginning of high profile designers visiting the boutique.
