The event is a private gallery showing of our latest photographic collaboration showcasing our AW17 collections with Murley & Maples photography and HRC.

THE WILLOW FOUNDATION The Willow Foundation is a national charity who work with seriously ill young adults from the age of 16 to adults in their 40’s by providing them with an uplifting and unforgettable day out.
These special days are an opportunity to have some normality back into their lives and to fulfill any dreams they may have. These can be very uplifting times for families and a source of strength for them when in need.
We have had the opportunity to create a day out for three beneficiaries, who are supported by The Willow Foundation.
Emma, Charlotte & Jo had the opportunity on 11th of September to be apart of a fashion photography shoot. They were photographed by the fantastic duo Murley Maples Photography at the beautiful Hanbury Manor Estate. Both Jane & Andrew photographed each model in many of the stunning locations surround Hanbury Manor capturing the models inner aura.
An exclusive look at the pre Spring Summer Pyrus collection and guest speaker Ash Johnson creator of pyrus willbe there too giving a talk on the inside of the fashion industry and how he has created such an amazing brand! Each design on their garments are designed and hand drawn by Ash himself, he carefully colours in each pattern creating unique designs that you will not see anywhere else.
Pyrus is one of the Boutique’s personal favourite brands, each collection simply takes our breath away, their new and innovative designs are perfect in every way and are a credit to the fashion industry. You will be able to shop on the night with an exclusive discount off the Brand.
LIA PARKINSON MILLINER We are excited to have back milliner designer Lia. She will have a pop up stand showing off her beautiful couture hats, all are hand made and range from fascinators to trilby’s. Hats galore!
CHARITY RAFFLE The night is all about raising awareness and money for such a wonderful cause, The Willow Foundation, a charity that we have worked with before and continue to support all of their hard work and of course there will be a spectacular raffle, a lot of very generous Hertford traders have donated some amazing gifts that you simply do not want to miss out on.
You will be able to purchase the photographs from the exhibition, and proceeds from these will also go to the charity.
We hope you can join us on our Kaleidoscope exhibition.
