On Tuesday, whilst conducting our Home Made Sportswear event, we made a friend!
Doreen, pictured on the right, who is 80 next month arrived in full biker leathers, and contributed greatly to our discussion.  We were talking about the importance of wearing good headwear, and she kindly brought her collection of hats into the shop for us to try on. Doreen explained how one can have a lot more fun with a flattering hat. They were so beautifully made, and we especially loved the Stephen Jones's hat Louise is wearing on the right.
Doreen packed her collection away into the hat box and danced her way down the street. Hopefully she will come with us when we enter Stephen Jones's paper hat competition at the V&A at the end of the month.

I think it was Vivienne Westwood who said life is better when you dress up.... and this is proof!!

Yes Vivienne said If in doubt dress up, which I think about a lot because sometimes you might not have the confidence to dress up, but if you dress to the MAX then you don't have to say of do much, you can just be fabulous. If you have a headache and can't speak, wear Stephen Jones.
