A Mad hatters silent auction

04.05.12

This week we were excited to attend a Silent Auction at The Sanderson Hotel. Hosted by The Hub Magazine with all proceeds going to the Kids Co we were proud to be involved as Kids Co is a charity we hold close to our hearts. A glamorous affair, with designer lots aplenty; dresses by Matthew Williamson and Stella McCartney, artwork by Tracey Emin and even a Prada handbag, they were very desirable. We donated our Personal Tailoring experience which saw lots of bids by well-dressed gents. The afternoon included a superb Mad Hatters high tea, an inspiring speech by Kids Co founder, Camila Batmanghelidjh and of course the silent auction. Each table was given a fancy tablet to tap away and place their bids - the Reiss team had to sit on their hands to resist bidding on the Tracey Emin. To round the afternoon off in style, an impressive performance by Beverley Knight brought the auction to a close.
