Natalie Massenet, Founder and Chairman of Net-a-Porter.com, hosted an exclusive dinner at the Haunch of Venison on Tuesday 19th October 2010 in London in honour of Reed Krakoff, who launched his first collection in February. Surrounded by fashion editors and Net-a-Porter VIPs, Krakoff - who is the talent behind the immense growth of the Coach brand - was toasted by the assembled guests before the dinner of wild thistle and chestnut salad, seabass with buttered spinach or beef with roasted shallots, before a pudding of damson poached blackberries.
Guests spent time trying on Krakoff's covetable bags and were given 15-minute private tours of the galleries on either side of the dining room before dinner.
