As fate would have it a few weeks back I was invited to sit on a table raising money for the Australian Olympic team heading off to Rio. It just so happened that my table backed onto a table which included a number of dignitaries, one of which was Mr. John Coates AC. I in turn sent him one of our Majestic Black bow ties with the rose gold plated clips and suggested that it was another way for him to represent Australia, by wearing Australian made... and I hoped the rose gold plated clips would be a favourable omen....
When I returned from my recent 'trip' I had a lovely email from Mr. Coates suggesting that not only was the bow tie well received, but it now had an international itinerary in the lead up to Rio.
I think it is fair to say that Mr Coates, on the left, outshines his companions as far as black tie goes. It is an honour to see our papillons supporting Australia at an Olympic level.... and fingers crossed we will bring back a great deal of gold.
Good luck to our Olympians and thank you Mr. Coates for supporting our little Australian made bow tie company.
