Firehorse Silk Scarves loved by King Charles and Dame Denise Lewis
We’d like to say THANK YOU to everyone who joined us along the way in the magnificent adventure that was ‘Firehorse-Birmingham 2022’.
Also, a very special thank you to King Charles and Queen Camilla who received our silk scarves with great appreciation and to Dame Denise Lewis, Olympic gold medallist and Commonwealth Games England president, another admirer of Firehorse fashions!
Finally thanks to our designers and makers, to our B22 agent and the Games Organising Committee, our models, stylist and photographer, our promotional partners and distributors and our new friends in the media, sporting and hospitality world who kindly showcased our Official Merchandise luxe silk scarves. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Jamie Baulch sporting our Silk Games Scarf Bandana-style!
Jamie showing his support for the Games all the way from St Lucia wearing our ‘Muted’ colour way Games silk scarf! A supremely talented man, Jamie’s ‘first’ career spanned 15 years at the top of world class athletics. He won the 400 metres gold medal at the 1999 World Indoor Championships and, as a member of British 4 × 400 metres relay teams, he also won a gold medal at the 1997 World Championships and silver medal at the 1996 Olympic Games. In fact he still holds the British Indoor 400m record which has stood for 25 years!🎖
“If you can Dream it, we can Build it”
So goes the mantra of the creative stars at Artem who designed and produced the Bull for the Opening Ceremony of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. We had a great chat with Nathan, senior technical specialist on the project, seen here with colleagues flying the flag for Firehorse and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games!
Isa and JJ Rocking the Games Highlights!
We had great fun catching up with BBC presenters Isa Guha and JJ Chalmers (or should we say ‘Ozzy’?!) on Birmingham’s Black Sabbath Bridge.
Isa, who holds a degree in biochemistry and molecular biology (as well as an MPhil in neuroscience!) is also a true cricket icon. Her playing career spanned a decade for the England Women’s Cricket team and she was World Cup winner in the One-Day and T20 format and a three time Ashes winner 🎖
As for JJ, originally a craft, design and technology teacher who juggled his career alongside joining the Royal Marine reserves, was severely injured in combat. He fought to not only live but thrive, going on to win gold at the Invictus Games 🥇
