I first came across the Hidden Lane when organising the photoshoot with Dragonfly Dress Design. Some weeks down the line I spotted a Facebook event notice that the Hidden Lane was having a festival. With the added incentive of a fashion show with Chouchou. There were several stalls selling jewellery, odds and ends. There was live music and food and drink to be had...all that was missing was the sun.
It's been a grey old Saturday, but they managed to squeeze the catwalk show in between the showers. The Spring/Summer collection had the title "Amber". I even managed to persuade the designer to line up her models for a few pictures after the show!
Cathy was kind enough to hold the brolly during the catwalk show, and as the rain got heavier David Black was kind enough to be brolly stand for the alley shots.
My wife and I managed to find a table in The Hidden Lane Tea Room and I had the most delicious chocolate brownie ever!
There was a live photoshoot taking place a little later, but the rain, soggy feet and low stamina kicked in so we sneaked away home.
Anyway, a few more pics from the catwalk show can be found on my Flickr site here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/photographybyduncanholmes/sets/72157626920516551/
