Dear Reader,

Well Summer is finally here with the Season in full swing - a time for strawberries and cream and fabulous
Frank Usher summer wear.

Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal was spotted at Royal Ascot on Ladies Day wearing an elegant white
silk jacket with a floral skirt and matching fascinator from the Coterie at Frank Usher couture range.
Another Ascot visitor, wearing a black and cream embossed linen coat and fascinator by Dusk at Frank
Usher was the vivacious Claire Young, a finalist in that fabulous series 'The Apprentice'. Claire also attended
the ninetieth birthday party for Nelson Mandela, wearing a stunning black chiffon Grecian style evening

Talking about birthdays, Lilia Kopylova celebrated her thirtieth in style, wearing a Dusk silver jersey
backless evening dress.

BBC's 'I'd do Anything' (the most enjoyable series to find the next Nancy and Olivers for the forthcoming
musical production of Oliver) saw finalist Samantha Barks wear a bright blue one shouldered Dusk gown for
the finale, whilst the winner, Jodie Prenger appeared on Graham Norton's show looking super in a Frank
Usher purple satin crossover cocktail dress.

International hairdresser, Beverley Cobella, wore an exquisite apricot outfit from the Dusk range when she
received her CBE from the Queen.

Hazel Irvine, the BBC sports presenter, got married in Frank Usher couture, a gorgeous gown of white satin,
encrusted with crystal chandelier drops.

Frank Usher supported the Amber Ball in aid of the Brain Tumour Research Campaign
( It was a fun packed evening which raised over £40,000. Hosted by Christopher
Biggins, celebrity guests included Helen Fospero, Debbie Franks, Kate Garraway, Lesley Garret, Joanne
Good, Julie Peasgood, Lara Lewington, Andrea McLean, Claire Nasir, Natalie Pinkham, Babs Powell, Emma
Samms, Ingrid Tarrant (all wearing Frank Usher and Dusk gowns) and Robert Powell, Martin Lewis, George
Webley and Alan Rogers.

Cliveden was the spectacular setting for a Frank Usher pre Ascot fashion show. Olivier Blanc, actor son of
famous chef Raymond, escorted the models on the catwalk - it is really the most stunning place to visit.

Another lovely and historical place to visit, Ashdown Park ( hosted a ladies
luncheon and Frank Usher fashion show. The audience of over 120 enjoyed a delicious lunch and show.

I attended Henley Royal Regatta, wearing a beautiful white printed silk outfit from the Coterie Collection.
I spotted some lovely Frank Usher dresses out and about in the Stewards Enclosure. It was such a fun day
and the weather was perfect.

The UK Jewellery Awards 2008 in association with Casio were hosted by Mica Paris, singer, actress and
presenter of BBC's 'What Not To Wear'. She wore a beautiful Coterie teal chiffon and satin gown and a figure
hugging black evening dress by Dusk.

With love from Frankie
