What a week!!! We've mostly been recovering from our 10 year anniversary bash, held at The British Engineerium in Hove. This red carpet event was co-hosted by Jason Phats, launching the Jason Phats Digital Group, and was charged with a magnificent Victorian atmosphere from the original steam engines in full flight.
We washed down bite sized fish'n'chips with champagne and cocktails among friends and clients in high spirits, all of whom rolled up to help us celebrate ten years of tailoring success.
The superstar DJ's were out in force too with FatBoy Slim playing a corker, preceeded by the brothers Orbital (complete with trademark specs!).
There was a live lounge set from Mitch Winehouse,
with an impromptu accompaniment from Vanessa Feltz on The Girl from Ipanema. She was there with fiance Ben Ofoedu, who raised the roof with a performance of the Phats & Small classic, Turn Around.
We put on two fashion shows, with A/W10 & SS11 men's and women's collections. Heather & Sally worked tirelessly to make the whole thing look effortless and Electric provided the finishing touches with amazing hair, courtesy of their super talented art team.
With state of the art lighting by Project Audio, the highest quality sound from Funktion One, Food by Due South and a fully licensed bar provided by Three and Ten Bars Ltd. we were looked after by the very best of the best.
All that's left to say is it A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who made it such a memorable night - Helen & Sally, all the volunteers and staff working for Gresham Blake and Jason Phats Digital Team.
