EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photograph from 1931, two elegant women, Miss Margaret Whigham and Mrs Colclough, proudly display British gloves, stockings, and scarves at the Best of Everything Dinner, Ball, and Pageant held at the prestigious Park Lane Hotel in London. The event was organized in support of the Margaret Street Hospital for Women and Children, with the theme reflecting the Buy British campaign of that year. Miss Whigham, a society figure and socialite, is seen gracefully holding up a pair of white gloves, while Mrs Colclough poses with a selection of stockings and scarves. Their refined attire and poised demeanor exude an air of sophistication and elegance, making them the perfect embodiment of British style and charm. The Best of Everything Ball was not only a charitable event but also a celebration of British industry and craftsmanship. Among the organizers was the renowned author and socialite, Mrs Alexander McCorquodale, better known as Barbara Cartland. With her involvement, the event gained significant attention and support from high society circles. The photograph captures a moment in time when British fashion and philanthropy came together to make a difference in the lives of those in need. The women's stylish yet practical accessories, made from the finest British materials, served as a testament to the quality and craftsmanship of the country's textile industry. The Best of Everything Ball was a resounding success, raising much-needed funds for the Margaret Street Hospital for Women and Children. This photograph stands as a reminder of a bygone era when fashion, charity, and national pride intertwined to create unforgettable moments in history.
