What a fantastic night. I had the absolute pleasure of seeing my wife, Miriam Gibson, present her winter collection womens fashion wear at a charity event held at Government House in Wellington on Tuesday night.
It was magnificent. The show was held in the Ballroom with the Governer General, His Excellency The Honorable Anand Satyanand, and his wife, Her Excellency Mrs Susan Satyanand, army staff in regalia, members of Rotary and the charitable organisation, Refugees as Survivors, and over 200 guests who had come to see the launch of the 2007 winter range and support a good cause.
And I was very, very, very impressed. Miriam, Victoria, Sue, Sarah, Veronica, and all the models - you all did a helluva job!
And standing up there following up the Governor General, the local Rotary head, and representatives of the charity with a speech on the podium with microphones, photographers, and press present. Crikey - my recent speaking engagements pale into comparison.
The range was fantastic so I definitely recommend checking it out: head to the stores in Margaret Rd, Raumati and Hunter St, Wellington, or check out the web site to find out more (pictures from the event are promised over the next few days). Nothing for the guys, this is ladies only. And don't forget the charity - they're a very worthwhile cause in this country which has been the fortunate recipient of many refugees in the past, including the Polish half of my ancestry...
