Last week I had the absolute pleasure of being invited to Eveden’s press event where they showed off their fabulous SS12 collection. The Eveden brands are Freya, Fantasie, Elomi, Huit 8 and Fauve and if you have read my blog regularly you will know that I love and have reviewed all bar Huit 8, this being because it stops at a DD. I was therefore stoked to have been given the opportunity to browse the delicious new collections. I was especially excited by the invitation, which promised an exquisite day:
I met up with fellow bloggers Kitty and Becky in London and due to their awesome map reading and navigation skills we found ourselves at a stunning hotel just off Oxford Street.
We made our way past the large Freya poster and up the stairs to be greeted with a glorious sight – two rooms full of sumptuous underwear and some absolutely stunning flapper girl models showing just how amazing some of the pieces looked on. There was such an array of lace, florals, dogtooth, high waisted briefs, suspender belts…we had died and gone to lingerie and swimwear heaven!
Holly Henstock then officially welcomed us and proceeded to show us around the collections. I wish I could tell you about every single piece as there was nothing that I didn’t love, especially after taking a closer look and being able to touch the fabric. However, I will try to show you as many pieces as possible and interject every so often.
Whilst we were looking round we were also introduced to big boss Ann-Marie Manley and the lovely Katie Weir, goddesses of the under(wear)world. It was a real pleasure to be amongst such lingerie royalty (in my book anyway!)
If you have any questions or comments about any of the sets then let me know, I will do my best to answer and help you out!
After looking round we were then invited for a fitting and given a complimentary set of underwear. I was fitted as a 36H in this amazing Lynsey set by Fantasie.
The set was not something I would usually go for at all, but once the lovely fitter had adjusted it and made me try my dress on over the top I found myself really rather liking it. It gives an amazing uplifted rounded shape and is the perfect mixture of flirty, sexy and girly. The silky lacey material felt expensive and luxurious on and I loved the three hooks and fully adjustable straps.
All in all it’s safe to say it was an amazing few hours. I was very honoured to have been given the opportunity to peruse the delightful new collections – roll on next Spring!
