Award winning designer Lucy Quartermaine and Derbyshire based stockist Merchants Jewellers collaborated in a Charity evening for ‘Children First Derby ’ on Friday 22nd March who work with young people and families to make a positive impact in their lives and within the local community.
Merchants jewellers attended the evening in support of the charity showing pieces from their Lucy Quartermaine collections, donations being made to the charity from each sale made. Designer Lucy Quartermaine provided her iconic statement designs to the event, which took place at The Riverside Centre, Derby, for their catwalk show exhibiting day and evening looks which included major clothing brands Gillian Hart, Phase Eight, Vivienne Westwood and Monsoon. The evening raised a total of £4300 including 20% of Lucy Quartermaine sales donated to the fantastic cause.
Tanita merchant, Director at Merchants Jewellers commented, ‘We were very pleased to be a part of the night and to help towards raising money towards a charity that helps local families. We wanted to collaborate with Lucy Quartermaine as they do stunning statement pieces that gave each outfit that finishing touch. We have a great relationship with the brand, and they were more than happy to help in any way they could and helped us raise money on the night for the charity. We will continue to do more in the future for causes that are close to our hearts’.
Lucy Quartermaine commented, ‘I am honoured that we can be involved in events like this one for such a fantastic cause. I was delighted when our wonderful stockist Merchants Jewellers chose my designs to be showcased and the response from the attendees was very positive.’
