The Launch of Something Special – Lyn Ashworth
Every so often we get an invitation at Simply HQ to join a special event, attend a launch party or go to a PR evening and they can be lovely things….however, last weekend it was particularly special.
We were invited to the launch of the new flagship store of Lyn Ashworth – England, who produce wedding dresses that are hand made and crafted from start to finish by designer Sarah Barrett and her highly experienced team of cutters and seamstress in the Made in England couture house.
It was such a privilege to be part of such a launch event, not only because we were surrounded by the most stunning gowns in their new setting with beautiful views over the countryside that treated us to a gorgeous sunset, but because of Sarah Barrett’s infectious passion for her craft, for British design and the exquisite skills of her highly trained team.
Testement to her dedication to local skills, English design and her belief that there is a dream dress for all her customers, were rooms full of supporters, colleagues and people who have been part of her business for a long time. Everyone from the crafts people who helped her create her new premises to friends and loved ones were there alongside photographers and press ensuring that the evening had all the atmosphere of the business – love, passion and a drive for perfection.
As with all our stories, this lunch is another example of how independent business really does bring magic to our communities, lives and business. We wish Sarah and her team huge success and happiness in their new premises and look forward staying connected with her story as it unfolds.
