High Fashion from Colmers Hill to Steepleton Manor


Colmers Hill Fashion celebrated the arrival of its summer society occasionwear with a top-drawer fashion shoot at Steepleton Manor.

With Royal Ascot in June and other society events like Goodwood, Henley Regatta and Wimbledon following on, Colmers Hill Fashion boutique (based at Symondsbury Manor Yard), planned the shoot to show a selection of outfits for women of all ages.

To set the scene classic cars are an MG TD 1952 (left) loaned by Neville and Kate Chambers of Wool, Wareham and 1973 MG Midget MKIII (right) on loan from Derek Ralls of the Dorchester MG Owners Club (MGOC Durnovaria 1008).

Local models, Jane Briggs-Harrison, Carla Wood, Lucy Paull and Karen Harris are wearing outfits by Out of Xile, Myrine Antwerp and Retuned Style. Co-ordinating hats are by Fiona Baker Millinery, based in Poundbury.

For anyone with a ticket to a big society event and no clue what to wear, Colmers Hill is on hand for style advice. Ascot, Glyndebourne and Wimbledon all have different dress codes and practical considerations, which can be mind-boggling.

Fortunately, Colmers Hill has been confidently styling local ladies since 2015 for all kinds of special events, with a range of sizes and fashions to suit all personalities and occasions – not to mention the great British weather!
