This past Friday at the Merchants Tailors Hall the annual BTBA Summer Ball was held. I have attended two previous Summer Balls, but this one was very important to me as I was receiving my coat making diploma. It was such a relief to pass, so my excitement for the event this year was really high.
The presentation was great, Phillip Parker from Henry Poole read out our names and we collected our certificates and took pictures; once it was over I could relax a bit more and soak up the great atmosphere. Unlike the Winter Ball, the Summer Ball is far more casual occasion. It is also a chance for everyone to show off their individual summer style, with colourful linen jackets and panama hats on display.
I had some amazing support from the guys at Anderson & Sheppard who were all in attendance, and they all looked great. Oliver Spencer wore a navy Mount Arden two piece suit; Max wore a grey Lamlana Jacket, navy cords and brown suede Cleverly loafers; and Matthew looked dapper in a grey two piece sharkskin suit.
The beauty of the building and courtyard, the gorgeous weather and the wonderful music from the live band all went towards creating a very enjoyable evening.
