Oobaloos Photography wears many hats!
When my dear friend Lisa, of LVH Millinery told me she was teaming up with Beatrice Von Tresckow Designs for a showcase I just knew it was going to be an evening to remember. Hosted by the one of Cheltenham’s most loved jewellers, Beards and sponsored by Sytner Mercedes Benz, Cheltenham
Stuart Holmes Hair hosted the preparations with all hands on deck creating marvellous hairstyles to compliment the hat designs. Amy Hickey and Christine Cara were both in charge of making sure the models make up was ready for the lights and glamour of the evening to come.
When I arrived, the party was in full swing with Love Bites Canapes being served and bubbles flowing. Models were flying around backstage and Lisa going ever so slightly mad (but she is a mad hatter and this is March so we shall let her off).
Once the show started, the audience hushed and the first model appeared at the top of Beards beautiful staircase. For the next 30 mins the crowd wowed and awed at Lisa’s millinery creations teamed with outfits from Beatrice Von Tresckow. Like a fashion ballet, the colours swirled around in the lights and mesmerised their audience. From my station I could hear sighs, wow’s and “oh she is so talented”.
Of course the evening couldn’t have happened without the beautiful, graceful models who showed off the designs with smiles and elegance…Kristi Flower, Cristina Maria Schmidt, Bec Limbrick, Sophie Lydia Smith, Amanda, Sophie Organ and Charlotte Hamilton. It was marvellous to see my image of Kristi, the face of LVH, on the enormous banner at the top of the staircase! The show was completed with a competition winner being announced for one lucky lady to win the use of a brand new Mercedes for the weekend!
