Pearly Private View

Pearly Private View

Charlotte Prichard, 22 September 2009

Before all the London Fashion Week madness started this season, we had more than just a bit of a knees-up in our Brick Lane shop.  Photographer Harry Dutton has installed his wonderful exhibition of portraits of Pearly Kings and Queens.  The private view was one of the best ever as we were in the company of five real Pearly Kings and Queens. They really got everyone going with a proper singsong (along with the ale from the Pitfield Brewery!).

It really was an amazing night.  Everyone was looking the part in black and white outfits, and our customer care manager Leigh even got to join in. The Pearlies do such amazing work for charity and all the money from the sales of the prints will go straight to them.

The exhibition is up until the 8th of November and ties in really nicely with our new Pearly inspired jewellery in the A/W09 collection. When you buy the Pearly King Brooch or Necklace, £1 from every sale will be donated to charity through the Pearly Kings and Queens Association.  Read all about them here.

Thank you your highnesses for such a wonderful experience!
