2015 and already we have quite a few knicker-making hen parties booked with some new crafty workshops in the pipeline ( keep your eyes peeled )
Top Drawer Diva was the brainchild of Clare and Vicki back in July 2011 and you can read all about why we love what we do !!!!
2014 was a big year for Top Drawer Diva and we expanded the Diva team to cover more ares of the UK - check out our map.
London was one of the key areas we wanted to offer our unique crafty hen party packages in and along came fun loving Steph at just the right time to become the London based Diva. London is a great place for a hen party / weekend, knicker-making with the Divas' then cocktails by the river thames !!!
Looking for the perfect London Hen Party then sit back and read all about our creative diva Steph who loves to get crafty with all the London Brides.
My love of fashion and fabrics began at school and never went away! I did my degree in Fashion Studies at the University of Lincoln where I learned how to design and manufacture garments, with a bit of millinery and photography thrown in for good measure. I had a great time there, and it confirmed what I already knew - that I wanted to be in the world of fashion, getting paid for it was an added bonus! After a couple of years of living back home in Manchester where I worked as a store manager, I decided to take the plunge and move to the Big Smoke to be a Buyer! 6 years later and it's been a lot of hard work but I've also had a lot of fun along the way - I mean fun's what make the world go round right?!
Just a quick update from the Divas' to let you know about our exciting tie up with the fabulous Kenwick Woods in Lincolnshire.
We have been lucky to host a few of our knicker-making masterclasses at Kenwick Lodges over the last few years and they are gorgeous!!!!!
Come on ladies - check out whats included :

How can it be September ....... where has this year gone ? Oh yes that's right in a flash of lace, knickers and bows. We have literally bounced from one fun loving hen party to another with a few stitch clubs in between and not forgetting a 40th.
Summer has been brilliant - not just the weather but the parties and mid August the Divas got to celebrate a 40th Birthday ( with many many references to knickers lol ) !!!!!!!
Happy Birthday Diva (you've still got it ) Vicki x
its been a while diva fans!!!!! not that we are complaining but my god are we busy - which is great, the knicker revolution is slowly taking over the hen party scene. Enquiries coming in thick and fast and even for next year - now we love a hen that is that organised :>
As time is flying by in a whirlwind of knickers - we thought a little 'rate my pants' blog was called for - below are a selection of pants created by the divas themselves at hen parties in the last 6 month.
We promised to be back in Spring and ok it isn't quite Spring but seriously Snow - its wearing a bit thin now is it not ? Despite the snow we have had many a Diva road trip over the last month touring a huge chunk of the North of England to bring knickers to expectant hens.
