Imagine the scene - I live in Sydney, Australia and needed an outfit for my step-daughter's Winter wedding in London in January 2013. Fashions were in full Summer mode in Australia and left me no option but to purchase my outfit in the UK. My arrival in London was one week prior to the wedding and I was horrified at the prospect of finding something suitable amongst all the January sales and needing possible alterations as is normally the case with me.
My Internet searches (from Australia) linked me quickly to the Nigel Rayment Boutique website which I found extremely informative and easy to browse. I contacted Nigel two weeks before my departure to London and was amazed at the speed of response and the friendliness and helpfulness.
I visited the boutique last Saturday feeling somewhat anxious but knowing that this was my starting place in my search for a suitable outfit. Cathy assisted me and I can never thank her enough for her advice and patient demeanour. I tried on several outfits but returned to the one that Cathy had initially suggested. It's absolutely gorgeous and Cathy's addition of some little colour co-ordinated feathers to a fascinator finish off the outfit perfectly. Nothing was too much trouble for Cathy together with some alterations that were expedited almost immediately.
A huge 'thank you' to Nigel and all the staff members that I met but especially to Cathy who I will always think of whenever I wear my beautiful outfit. I know where to come if I have another special occasion to attend and will not hesitate to mention you to my family and friends. I wish all my clothes shopping could be this easy and as much fun! With my deepest thanks. Susie (McCarthy no relative of Cathy's but how funny that we shared the same surname!)
