So a few weeks back I had the absolute pleasure of being invited along to the launch of Gok Wan’s new shapewear…as you can imagine I was pretty damn stoked! I was up early to make my way to the amazing hotel in London, accompanied by fellow bloggers Caroline, Becky and Laura.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got there but let me tell you, being welcomed by Aunty Gok himself into a room full of my favourite bloggers, many sat on a revolving sofa…well, that was really quite special! After being provided with my hot tipple of choice (mint tea!) Gok beckoned several of us over to show us his “Hall Of Fame” collection. He talked of how annoying it is when you have the perfect pair of shoes or jeans and then they fall apart and you can’t get a hold of them anymore. So he has updated his new line using all of the positive feedback that ladies gave him from his last line. He has created 6 different pieces in Slate, Blush and Crush. The pieces are: the Curve Controller Body, the Pull Me In Pants, the Sassy Slip, the Divine Outline Multi-Way, the Slicker Knicker and the Banger Booster Bra; fantastic names in an amazing spectrum of sizes – 30-46 A-G for the bra pieces, 8-32 for the bottoms. What’s especially great is that he expanded the range by one cupsize so fingers cross this expansion keeps going! Each piece was embroidered with a signature “Gok” logo and displayed on plus size mannequins – amazing!
After that I spent an enjoyable few hours trying to sneak photos with Gok and catch up the lovely ladies, particularly Birthday girl and Fairy Blog Mother Cheryl, Kitty and Sarah.
Here are a few photos of the day and the new collection.
