Ascot Awaits…

Amanda Wakeley and the directors of Ascot Racecourse hosted an evening of shopping, champagne and canapés at our flagship store on Wednesday evening.

Ladies were invited to view the Spring/Summer ’10 collection ahead of Ascot, and piece together their perfect Ascot outfits. On hand, were Amanda and Bridget, our head of Private Clients, to offer their style tips and hints.

Throughout the evening our models, Nina and Lisa, circled the room in a host of looks, ranging from the traditional to the truly sublime. Each outfit was fabulously accessorised by milliner Stephen Jones too. Here are our favourite Ascot looks….
