It seems crazy that a year ago, we were hurriedly adding the finishing touches to the boutique, perfecting the window display, and arranging the lingerie ‘just-so’!
It all started off with a bang at our sensational launch party, held at The Club at The Ivy. With plenty of prosecco flowing and the club full to capacity with excited guests, we showcased our collections with an astounding catwalk. Each guest was given an extravagant goodie bag full of treats including one of our hot-off-press brochures, a Dolci Follie chocolate and an exquisite Luna Veneziana filigree eyemask.
Throughout the year, we’ve held several other events in-store to showcase our favourite designers, inlcuding Olivia von Halle, Fleur of England, Paolita & Lascivious. Thank you to everyone who came to our events this year – we had so much fun, and so enjoyed meeting you and sharing a few drinks!
On of our favourite things to do is plan a spectcular window display. We’ve had some great fun with ours this year – creating a snow-covered winter wonderland for Christmas, a red-hot Valentine’s haven, or even getting into the spirit of Wimbledon! Here’s a few of our favourite:
We’ve also had a wonderful number of mentions in the press, and had many stunning pieces from our lingerie range featured in gorgeous fashion shoots. Here’s a selection of some of our favourites:
Of course, one of our highlights this year has been winning ‘Independent Retailer of the Year’ at the UK Lingerie Awards 2012. We were chuffed to bits to receive the award, and cannot say thank you enough to everyone who has supported us!
We already have a few exciting things planned for the year ahead, and can’t wait for another fabulous year of Dolci Follie, but for now we want to make the most of our first year – so make sure you join us to celebrate on Thursday 8th November, 10am – 8pm!
