Evening with our designers

Snapped by the paparazzi! Photo from

Earlier in the week I went to The Strand Arcade's "Evening with our designers" (including Manning Cartell, Alex Perry, Lisa Ho and Gorman) to celebrate and promote the launch of their 2012 Spring/Summer collections.

Tying the night together was a sort of Indian safari feel with orange, pink and white flowers draped over the balconies and free bindhis.
I went with my ever charming friend Nicolette (who I can thank for all the nights photos) and we indulged ourselves with free Chandon champage and mini macarons! We even got our picture taken by the press! (see first photo)

The Strand Arcade is a beautiful Victorian building complete with a specially tinted glass roof. It's worth a visit for the architecture alone.

You both look ridiculously beautiful! I can't believe that dress is from Cue, I am definitely popping in there next time I go past one, I had no idea they stocked such elegant, vintage inspired dresses!

You look as stunning as always! What a wonderful fashion event to attend. I am a wee bit jealous. We only have fashion events like that in NYC & LA (mostly).
