Last month the Donna Ida team travelled to Daylesford to join the launch party of the IDA capsule collection in Bamford. Carole Bamford and Donna Ida Thornton invited their guests to a sumptuous Christmas brunch in Bamford's beautiful barn in the Cotswold's where the AW13 collection was presented by fashion director Amanda Brooks.
Donna Ida Thornton, pictured above wearing IDA Mabel in Bright Vintage with her Loren Queen Bee Coat said 'Bamford is a business I have long admired, bringing together luxury collections in beautiful settings. IDA fits perfectly into their philosophy of being more than a seasonal fashion label with an edited collection of high-waisted denim to anchor the modern wardrobe all year round. I'm delighted that IDA will be joining the Bamford way of life'
The AW13 looks were introduced by Amanda Brooks and demonstrated by three beautiful models all wearing IDA AW13 jeans with their cosy cashmere, accessories, knits and coats all the Bamford collection.
The sophisticated crowd which included Rodial's Maria Hatzistefanis and Live Fashion's Catherine Whiley was treated to refreshing smoothies and Bamford canapes including hot sausages, mini yorkshire puddings and finished off with the most delicious brownies.
Bamford in Daylesford is the perfect country retreat for the weekend with a day spa, beautiful shop and restaurant. For more details check their website www.bamford.co.uk
