    New dresses, including ones by local designers such as Maggie Marilyn and Martin Grant, as well as some by Reformation, Self Portrait and Figue, came to almost £65k, whilst re-worn items came to just over £52k.

    Meanwhile, accessories by the likes of Prada, Dior and Gucci, and jewellery made up the rest – though some diamond pieces were more difficult to cost up.
