In a £1m venture we have helped Evelyn Cong realise her dream of opening a super-salon, House of Evelyn’s, in the heart of Manchester’s hot spot.
The Hollywood star, producer and fashion designer Sadie Frost had the honour of first guest and cut the ceremonial ribbon alongside Evelyn Cong as reported but the Manchester Evening News. Sadie was on great bubbly form reporting days later on social media “What a fun and glamorous affair!”. Celebrities, friends and family from as far afield as China were present for a champagne reception and address from our MD, Simon Evans before allowing party-goers to explore the surroundings.
One lucky invitee, Michelle McKenna, famed for the TV shows TOWIE and Love Island was in premier position to experience treatments first hand and later tweeted “Thank you. Loved my treatments and makeover, beautiful staff and settings. Would fully recommend.”
Nestled between excellent neighbours like Rio Ferdinand’s recently revamped Rosso Restaurant and the new cool kid on the block Hotel Gotham at 40 Spring Gardens the salon’s location is a prime site for Manchester. Sadie joked “it is the furthest she had come for a blow dry” although she added she is “finding herself more-and-more in Manchester these days”. So will not be a stranger to the salon.
The project has been a terrific voyage helping this young entrepreneur and her aid/manager meet the challenges of setting up a business of this magnitude from initial concept. One which we have been all too glad to help assist it to come to fruition. Our recent Computer Generated Image (CGI) department, really helped portray our vision to the client and accelerate the communication channel for rapid design development. There is more about the project within our portfolio section.
The launch evening continued with canapés and cocktails at the highly regarded neighbouring hotel Hotel Gotham who’s staff had help cater the celebrations throughout the entire evening.
