It was time for tea for Playful Promises last week as we threw a fabulous press day party – ‘Cream Tea and Corsetry’ – in the lavish surroundings of Portland Place with Kiss Me Deadly and Lulu and Lush!
After the initial panic of trying to remember all of the days essentials (2 taxis were required to go and pick up our forgotten samples – oops!!) we were served cups of tea from beautiful china teacups by cute 1920’s flapper girl waitresses courtesy of the lovely Bettie Blythe, and devoured way too many cheeky knicker-embellished ‘Eat Me’ cupcakes by ‘The Great Cake Escape’!
The burlesque beauties, ‘Two To Tease’ featuring Cordelia and the dazzling Princess of Soho, Cheyenne Raymond showed off Playful Promises and Kiss Me Deadly’s saucy sets with a seductive strip-tease performance!
We have also discovered a great new way of designing future collections! We had a wonderfully hardworking production line of guests busy customising corsets, frilly knickers and candy-coloured girdles with an array of glittering Swarkowski crystals, lace-trims, flowers and bows!
Speak to you all really soon!
