We were absolutely delighted to see that the one and only Gok Wan used one of our fabulous 1950s style Halterneck Circle dresses last night, in his weekly designer fashion face-off on Gok's Fashion Fix. Unfortunately, he didn't win this time, but as far as we're concerned, every girl who puts on one of our frocks is a winner. Gok has just finally cottoned on to the fact that we've all known for years - Fifties fashions are fun, feminine and lots of other alliterative words meaning essentially the same thing... fabulous!
He took one of our pale yellow dresses and he removed the halterneck strap and added lots of kitsch and cute cat appliques all over the skirt. Due to the strategically placed boning, all our dresses work perfectly strapless. Although we could argue that it's hard to improve upon our tried-and-tested designs, we do actively encourage you to customise your Vivien of Holloway dress, as seen here, the results can be stunning!
The final look Gok created using our dress was all about 'Ice Cream Colours', so he added beautiful pastel-coloured shoes, a coat and a belt to complete the outfit. The model looked a picture as she sashayed down the catwalk.
Thank you to Gok and his Fashion Fix team for featuring us in the show, unfortunately our poor website couldn't handle the droves of eager ladies trying to get their hands on a Vivien of Holloway frock and it was out of action briefly! It's back up now and we're so excited about sending out our dresses to glamorous girls across the country. Make sure if there's anything you fancy that you snap it up right away since things are flying out of the shop faster than you can say 'Gok Wan'!
And if you missed Gok's Fashion Fix last night, you can catch up now thanks to Channel 4oD.
