At the end of September I was proud to finally see Silver & Sas Fashion Show come to life. After nearly two years of planning along with Covid delays it was finally time.
As part of an amazing team of women, including Rachel Peru, Annie Stirk, Sonia Schofield & Trudy Beau, many hours of hard work it was a joy to see the Silver & Sassy models strutting their stuff down the catwalk at the glorious Goldsborough Hall, Knaresborough, proving that ditching the dye doesn't mean ditching style.
As the head stylist for this event I wanted to show our models and the audience that you can still wear colour, you can still be stylish and on trend no matter what your age. There were collaborations with Jigsaw, Fenwick York, Figleaves, Copper & White, Vintage Beau, Cabi, Georgies Harrogate and John Lewis. Jewellery by L'Atelier Natalia Wilmott.

Lots of Autumn Winter wardrobe inspiration. Pops of colour and easy to wear pieces that will fit effortlessly in to your wardrobe.
But for me the best part was watching our models confidence grow, many of them were gently pushed out of their comfort zone, wearing clothes they may not have chosen for themselves but I hope loving them nonetheless. Letting the ladies shine the clothes really put a spring in their step and showed the world that we do not have to become invisible as we get older.
As a stylist I love to see women's confidence grow when they wear an outfit they love. An outfit that suits their proportions & colouring you can see the moment they stand a little taller and straighter, Its always an honour to be part of that process and definitely the favourite part of my job. Proving that with the right outfit you can indeed, take on whatever the day throws at you.
