For those of you that don't know yet - I have an announcement - the charismatic Gok Wan
has selected the North East for the start of his next tour, One Size Fits All.
And if that wasn't exciting enough, Gok has selected Margaret Woodliff Wright Millinery as the only couture millinery collection to be on the catwalk at the Gateshead Hilton on September 30th, I can't wait to hear his catwalk commentary on my collection!
So I am now busy getting my collection completely up to date and the excitement is growing, especially as four of the ten shows, including the Gateshead Hilton show, are already fully sold out!
Finally, if you fancy getting a touch of your own millinery excitement too, would you like to make your own piece of winter millinery, if so please get in touch. My next three week workshop course starts in Alnwick on October 25th, and continues on Nov 1st & 8th - but hurry as there's just three places remaining. You can find more details on the workshop page of my website.
I am delighted to announce that my next appearance to show my couture millinery will be at The Belford Arts Festival, Northumberland. I will be showing a selection of pieces including pieces from my archival One Hundred Years Collection, in most beautiful location - The Ballroom, at The BlueBell, Belford.
Just in case you're interested and would like to see the programme, here's a link to copy and paste in your browser which will take you straight to details of the very exiting and hugely varied Arts Festival programme - there will also be a film festival running concurrently. Please do support the Arts Festival (new this year) by coming along if you can.
And another date for your diary is my pop up shop in The Design Room at Fenwick of York, where my summer collections will be available for the month of August. So I am making lots of new pieces, as I write! I am excited to be visiting the store regularly to talk to the customers about the design process of making a couture hat or headpiece, throughout August. Look forward to meeting you there.
