Today saw two more events in the calendar of this years Clothes Throw.
This afternoon was the 'Afternoon Tea Party', complete with cake and bubbly, where guests could bid for offerings from famous faces including Carol Vorderman, Joan Collins and Brix Smith-Start. These offerings being, among others, Temperley and Halston Heritage, ensured that this was certainly an event not to be missed.
But The Clothes Throw fun didn't stop there, with the 'Finale Auction' held tonight.
The Palm Sugar Mojitos and canapes were delicious once again (ooh the perks of reporting three nights on the run!) and were demolished before the serious bidding commenced. Those auctioneers don't half speak fast, their speedy hum I think was along the lines of "at a hundred pound I’m bid now one hundred one hundred one hundred at a hundred pound now..."
Amongst the lots tonight was a stunning buttery leather jacket from Sienna Miller's Label Twenty8Twelve, an all expenses paid trip to New York, a stunning replica of Lady Gaga's Mobo dress from Philip and Tony Armstrong and Alex Gerrard's leopard print Lanvin Dress. It was beautiful, Lanvin's my favourite, it took some willpower to keep my hands firmly on the keyboard and not in the air...
This was the last of the auction events, the online auction will go live tomorrow.
Tomorrow will also feature the last of this years Clothes Throw events, 'The Graduate Throw'. Look out for my coverage!
