Remi Cachet held its first-ever Summer Ball and Awards Evening on Saturday 18th September at the prestigious Redworth Hall, not far from their Stockton on Tees base.
Devised during the initial lockdown period to bring together their Super Stylists who normally meet up annually, and to have an event to look forward to celebrating the brand’s development and successes, the guest list included their Super Stylists and other VIPs close to the brand.
“We’ve been so looking forward to this night, we all deserved a fantastic get together, and to let our hair down and have some fun. For the past couple of years, we have not been able to host our usual Super Stylist event, and so we wanted to have something different and recognise the efforts of the Super Stylists. Everyone had such a great time, and we can’t wait to be able to do it all again next year.”
Guests were treated to a sumptuous three-course dinner before Remi Cachet supporter and Georgie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby took to the stage to compare the night and hand out the awards, as well as have everyone in stitches of laughter, before ending the night on the dance floor.
The award winners on the night were:
