Recently I received a beautiful email from a bride with some kind words about her experience there and I wanted to share it.

FAO Owner/Manager,

I would just like to say a massive thank you for employing such wonderful
staff.  I came in on Saturday 19th with my bridesmaid and my appointment
was with a lady called Mel. She was amazing. So professional, new exactly
what style suited my shape, which resulted in me finding my dream dress! Mel is a credit to your buisness, her warmth and knowledge is second to
none.  I came back with my mum, mum in law AND step mum yesterday and
again, the service was second to none. I have ordered my dress and I am
really looking forwards to everything your shop has to offer.  I feel
extremely safe with how professional you are. Once again thank you, and a
massive thank you to Mel. Warm regards,  Carla Gration

Pia Michi and Barnardos Charity Ball – Mayfair London

As a make up artist we are usually behind the scenes at events (which is where we really  love to be) but occasionally we are invited to an event where we get to enjoy it alongside the people involved. My fellow super talented Make up Artist friend and colleague Amy Brandon recently did make up for the talented designer at Pia Michi – Penny and some other super talents for the Pia Michi and Barnados Ball in Mayfair London.

Amy was invited to the ball thanks to her amazing make up skills and I as her guest. We were treated to a red carpet entrance and cocktails on arrival at the lovely Millenium hotel in Mayfair –  We were also treated to a catwalk show of amazing Pia Michi dresses from the new collection, a vocal performance from Jade Ellis and an amazing Electric String Quartet “String Fever” – These 4 guys looked great and sounded amazing, as well as being entertaining and talented- Following this we had  a lovely dinner and dancing!

Pia Michi 1We were also treated to a goody bag full of treats and wonderful items… What was in it – that would be telling but there were gorgeous products from the suppliers at the ball including Pia Michi, Sparkling Jewellery and Inanch London.
