Let the Modelling begin!




and the models are ready……

Dec 1st, 2010 saw Carolyn de la Drapiere take part in a wonderful evening of frivolity, entertainment and networking at the annual Christmas event of a large organisation of business women based in London.

What a ball we all had, for despite the intrepid weather conditions outside and the fact that some of our models were unable to make the show due to snow, the heat was up and sizzling when 13 fabulous business women took to the catwalk to show off a selection of outfits and dresses from my latest collection.

The vivacious, curvaceous Jo King, looking divine in the 'Louis the 14th' crushed red velvet jacket and leopard print dress.

The models were simply divine, and the really special part was that they are all successful, professional woman who run their own businesses or have thriving careers in a wide spectrum of industries. Ranging from accountants, city bankers, doctors, IT specialists, lawyers, and a minister, to women who have their own alternative therapy practises and others who have schools specialising in sewing, hat making and burlesque dance.


A glamorous group of ladies…all looking divine –

(Sorry we missed some of you in the photos! I think the temptation to start dancing was too great and you missed the photoshoot!)

What an inspiring group of women and how fabulous they looked in the clothes!

 Thanks so much to everyone that helped out to make the fashion show a success. As with any event of this nature, the work load is immense, but well worth the effort!


(Me,collapsed against the trolley of clothes! Well,I did arrive at the hotel with three massive suitcases and 25 suitbags. It must have looked like I was arriving on an extended holiday – if only!)

Photos were taken by the very talented Helen Jermyn, who did a fantastic job at capturing the essence of the night.

Blowing kisses….. Anna and Heidi.
