Girl Meets Dress live from the NTAs

 

As you can imagine the Girl Meets Dress team have been incredibly busy over the last month, it being awards season –  dressing customers for their award evenings and work functions. Our press team were also busy as we recently became an official partner of the National Television Awards and were excited to attend the event this week. It’s always fun to attend events as a team, and it was great to see both celebrities and audience members wearing our dresses. Kelly Hoppen was spotted wearing our Amanda Wakeley Scuba gown whilst Gemma Oaten from Emmerdale decided to pick our Gorgeous Couture Reagan dress.

As the awards show was at the huge O2 there were thousands of people.  We had fantastic seats in front of the stage, behind the celebrities, and we  tweeted on the Girl Meets Dress Twitter and Instagram accounts throughout the night. Dermot O’Leary was the host and was hilarious, he had the GMD team in fits of giggles. We loaned a dress to his stage hostess who won a competition through The Sun to present the awards to celebrities on stage, she wore the Carmen Marc Valvo Crepe Halter Gown and looked amazing!

The dress code on the tickets said black tie, but I  spotted a few ladies in jeans and jumpers! Of course we raided the GMD rails before leaving the office and went sporting some of Girl Meets Dress’s latest dresses, I wore the Eilsa Ryan Off the Shoulder Lace Dress whilst the PR team wore Amanda Wakeley and MSGM, and the customer services team wore Clover Canyon and Gorgeous Couture. Some audience members chose to wear full length ball gowns whilst others went for sequin party dresses, it was a wide mix which made the night full of people watching during the breaks!

The Drapers Awards 2013

The past week has definitely been all about juggling work with our office move… so it was nice to dress up on Thursday evening and attend the Drapers Awards 2013, an annual evening of glamour and celebration with some of the most renowned names in the UK fashion retail industry.

It was the 2nd time in a week I had been to an event at Old Billingsgate in the City of London; the NOAH tech conference after party was also held there.

An audience of more than 800 gathered for the black-tie awards dinner and Girl Meets Dress Co-Founder Xavier and I were seated with a fabulous group from the retail and ecommerce industry at our table. Our host Victoria from Drapers led an extremely fun dinner, deciding to monopolise the twitter feed on the big screen above the stage by creating our own hashtag #table72 – and as we browsed the lots on auction from the ipads placed on each table, we enjoyed courses of pumpkin, duck and chocolate cheesecake.

The dresses on show were extremely impressive, with all the female attendees choosing to go high in the glamour stakes and the obvious trends of the night were fully sequinned mini dresses, short lace dresses with sleeves, and black full length gowns. I decided to go for colour, and picked a red lace cocktail dress by a new brand to Girl Meets Dress Honor Gold. I was in the mood for sleeves, and teamed the dress with black tights, metallic slingback sandals and a black snakeskin box clutch bag.

We bumped into lots of familar faces from the retail and online industry and it was great to catch up with friends we hadn’t seen in a while. The Drapers ladies looked stunning as usual, and had all decided to go for dresses with a shine, whether chunky multicoloured beads, sequins or glittery strands sewn into chiffon.

Dara O’Briain was our host for the evening, announcing the award winners, and the hilarious Irishman helped make the night a memorable one.

The after dinner party was circus themed and contained a photo booth, a popcorn stand and a pick and mix cart. When the evening ended at 2am on the dance floor, we collected our coats and headed out into the night, as I glanced back and caught sight of Drapers team shimmering away to the music.
