Tango South London

Well we had a lovely time at TSL last night - the place was humming - Luis' empanadas were delicious and Claire had organised a shoe exchange which was great.  Claire and Luis performed which was delightful and the lace swirled around amidst the dancers.  Unfortunately we missed Saturday at Corrientes and Friday at Carablanca - even missed class on Friday - that's how busy it has been recently.  Where did everyone else go dancing this weekend?  How did the clothes look?  We have some cunning plans for the next couple of months:)

After the Tango Ladies' Tea - May 2011

Just to let you know that it was a great afternoon. Sadly our make-up demo lady could not make it due to a family emergency. The TT team, however, not to be put out, invested in various hair-do equipment and instruments of torment, and hey presto, we were able to play at hairdressers!

A small but keen group of ladies turned out for the afternoon, and we had lots of fun. The splendid tea of home-made cup cakes, banana bread and tea was excellent. Followed by Pimms to refresh those of us who were flagging after many changes of wonderful clothes!

The lace dress was everyone's favourite, and looked lovely on all who tried it, no matter what size and shape - a magic piece - one size to fit all, it would seem?


Olga and boleo test!
 Difficult decisions had to be made, lace or chiffon, chiffon or lace?
Or perhaps one of each?!

Ella was finally relieved of her Carmen rollers!
Considering we are rank amateurs at hairdressing, not a bad result!

Thank you ladies for spending the afternoon with Ella @ home,
a special THANK YOU to Gaby, Alan and Kate (for helping with photographs). 
Hope to see you all at our next event.

Swatch Watch - Lace!

We show below some of the lace fabrics we have available. The dresses and skirts are made up without any lining as they are designed to be worn over a contrast colour slip or half slip. There are many colours available in the satin, and different shades can alter the look of the lace quite dramatically. Please see El Huracan video below.

Todo Trajeado - Lace Hunt in Paris!

We are setting out at the crack of dawn on Wednesday morning to hunt down the most glorious, beautiful and desirable lace we can find in the given time we have. The intrepid trio will not rest until we have enough yardage (meterage) to clad our patrons from top to toe in gorgeous lace concoctions!

Our finds will be on view on Saturday 14th May at the West End Studio in Newman Street, W1.
