Dress for Success Charity Evening

Mortimer Hirst was delighted to join other St Heliers Village Businesses in supporting the recent “Make Over” evening in support of the wonderful charity “Dress for Success”. An experienced stylist from Signature Style provided valuable information on shape, style, colour and how to avoid costly shopping mistakes. Mortimer Hirst attended and show cased the latest collections of eyewear and sunglasses from Europe and L.A such as Theo, Lindberg, Tom Ford, Anne & Valentin and Oliver Peoples. Congratulations to the two winners of a $250.00 Mortimer Hirst gift voucher.

The event was created by a small group of passionate St Heliers Bay residents whom love and support the local Village Community. As well as showcasing some local businesses the event was more importantly created to help less fortunate people than ourselves, the charity “Dress for Success”.
