Move over, London. Milton Keynes is the UK’s new fashion capital. Well, at least it is in the eyes of Addleshaw Goddard’s technology, media and IP group.
At a recent retreat (held in the Midlands concrete cow capital) partners and assistants strutted their stuff during a glitzy catwalk show. As part of the unusual bonding exercise, the lawyers had to show off their fashionable side by parading in their self-designed clothes.
Tulkinghorn was informed that the outfits were rather impressive and would have even passed muster with fashion gurus Trinny and Susannah. Especially one model, who truly entered into the fashionista mode with designer tears in his T-shirt that showed off more flesh than most lawyers deemed suitable. It made the polite audience blush.
Rumours that several partners refused to take to the catwalk, and that the event at one stage got so rowdy that the police, who happened to be sharing the conference centre, had to be called, were categorically denied by the firm. Shame, sounds like even more fun.
