Fashion and sport were perfectly fused last week for the launch of the Aegon Classic’s first tennis ladies day, held in Birmingham’s beautiful Hotel Du Vin.
A mixture of bloggers, stylish ladies and gents, and sporty professionals were invited to hear all about the event, which promises to be a new highlight on Birmingham’s fashion and sports calendar. There was a chat about the links between sport and fashion by Muireen Carey-Campbell from the blog Bangs and a Bun, whilst Claudia Santillo and Benjamin from the Benjamin Ryan salon were on hand to demonstrate the sports influence on this season’s hair styles.
Guests were also given a preview of the beautiful ring created by Vault 88.com that will be hidden inside one of the very special goodie bags that will be presented to the first 400 ladies through the door on ladies day.
The ladies day will take place on 14th June, with a real emphasis on pampering. There will be treatments from Harvey Nichols and demonstrations of cocktail making. There will also be a best guessed guest competition on the day. And. of course, there will also be the treat of world-class tennis, including current champion Sabine Lisicki. Tickets are now available from the LTA website (http://www.lta.org.uk/fans-major-events/LTA-summer-grass-court-events/AEGON-Classic/Tickets/)
The launch has really wet for my appetite for Birmingham’s very own Wimbledon. Let’s hope they have the Champagne and strawberries on order.
