What a fantastic evening we had last Thursday at John Lewis in Norwich at their fantastic Norfolk bloggers and 'instagrammers' private event! We were lucky enough to be invited and for Izzi to come and demonstrate how our products, which are stocked in John Lewis, are made.
The event was full of beauty brands, such as GHD, Origins, Jessica Nail Varnish, the new Dyson hairdryer plus lots more. Boden also had a lovely stand of clothing as they have just begun selling in John Lewis too alongside Laura Spring's clothing range for Kin @ John Lewis, which we loved!
As well as all these fantastic brands, Rooftop Gardens, a local bar in Norfolk, had a pop up bar where they were making delicious cocktails which you could have with some of the yummy food from Waitrose! The whole room looked amazing and we loved spending the evening there!
John Lewis had invited lots of local bloggers and 'instagrammers' to the event to chat to all the different brands and enjoy a cocktail or two. It was so interesting talking to all these women who have made a definite name for themselves in the world of social media and blogging...and we were very grateful to them for all their advice and for sharing our products on their various sites.
We had a stand of our products there that are stocked in John Lewis as part of their 'Made Local' scheme and Izzi was sewing away making the products that are stocked there. People were really interested in the 'Made Local' scheme and thought that having local designers in their local stores was a fantastic idea and important to support.
We had a fantastic evening and loved being a part of Norwich's first bloggers event at John Lewis. We of course made a quick de-tour to see our products in the store...it really does not get any less exciting!
