The buzz is rife with talk about 'who is going to wear what' to the Love My Dress Summer Soiree – the first major networking event that I've ever organised and will be hosting, at the very fabulous BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts on 3rd August 🙂

As far as I'm aware, this is the first cocktail and champagne fuelled party major networking event of it's kind in the North East of England.  I was really determined to hold this event in the region, where my home is.  So many fabulous events that take place in the industry do so in London, and I was up for a challenge.  I thank all the many guests from outside of the North East, who have gone out of their way to attend on the evening. I am sure it will be worth your while 😉
