Billie By Billie Faires At George At Asda!
On Saturday we were invited to the Billie Faires For George at Asda latest launch and treated to a fun afternoon in the sunshine with a festival to celebrate. The clothing, as always, is detailed and beautiful with a Spanish inpired edge and Billie herself was on hand to talk us through her latest designs.
This woman always impresses me when it comes to her eye for children’s clothes, impresses and surprises for it might not be the obvious leap from reality TV to clothing desinger, yet it’s a role she takes on with aplomb!
I love to dress Posie especially in the designs, the boy’s stuff is great too but the dresses with delicate ditzy floral prints and frills which are not ostentatious but rather old-fashioned, are just up my street. I adore rompers for Posie for their practical edge as well as aesthetic and the ones in Billie’s collections are always gorgeous. This latest offering is no different. I’ve come to expect a lot from a new launch of hers and it lived up to it!
What I want to say about Billie as a person is that she is lovely. I’ve met her a few times now and genuinely I just feel a massive warmth from her which I really don’t think can be put on. I’m a really good judge of character and what I get from Billie and her sister, as well as Greg and the kids, who I met for the first time on Saturday, is that they are nice and very normal. I chat with my friends all the time about being happy for others and how it’s so important to feel that very genuinely. I suspect Billie comes under fire in her line of work for judgement from others. Certainly I was asked masses of questions over on Instagram stories from people who I think sounded like they wanted a horror story. It’s harder to be happy for other people’s achievements and I get that Billie and her life might cause a bit of the green eyed monster but I’m here to say how lovely I think they ALL seemed. Billie was next to me when I needed to change a nappy and she was just like any other mum “Just do it on a chair” she said “gosh, no one will mind, that’s what we did, and it’s easier”. Equally Greg, who I asked to take my picture with Billie, was just so normal and like any other Dad. He joked and did “photographer” style directions and absolutely all of the children were so kind and polite and played with all the others. There were no airs and graces, no notions of being better than anyone else that i got a whiff of and it all felt very comfortable in their company. So there you have it, I think that covers the questions I was asked about this lovely family who smiled their whole way through the party and no wonder! What a mega achievement, TWELVE collections for Asda and well done them, I hope they enjoy every second of their success! Here’s what we got up to at the party which was a festival to celebrate Billie and her collections with George at Asda.
