Elizabeth Emanuel, co-designer of one of the most iconic dresses in the world – Princess Diana’s wedding dress – is set to rock the British establishment of men’s shirts with a new and contemporary range of women’s business shirts designed exclusively for the Queen’s shirtmakers, Thresher & Glenny.
The official launch and unveiling of the collection by The House of Britannia was held last week in the auspicious surroundings of London’s Pasley-Tyler club, the classic English style providing the perfect backdrop for the assorted invited guests. Eminent figures from the acting world, such as Edward Fox and Rula Lenska, rubbed shoulders with stars from the music industry – rapper Eck Sell and singer Sonique – and from the world of sport, as long jump champion Jade Johnson also attended the event.
Guests enjoyed glasses of Nyetimber sparkling wine, while models showcased the exclusive shirts that Elizabeth has designed.
The range, called Thresher & Glenny by Elizabeth Emanuel, will launch in North America and Europe in Spring 2015, with the first season’s shirts on sale in selected department stores and online.
