I'll be the first to admit it: Céline is one of my favorite fashion buzzwords. What's not to like about this sleek and most coveted brand?! I mean a) It's designed by Phoebe Philo, someone who understands women, someone who presents beautifully constructed clothes of the highest quality season after season. b) It's timeless! Proof? I've been carrying the Nano bags for the past 3 or 4 years now! c)Did I mention that it's designed by Philo? So imagine my excitement when Céline team approached me to host an exclusive and private event for my close family and friends? "No media? And all that hoopla?" I asked in relief. "No media and no fuss, just a family affair kind of event", replied Céline's rep. Perfect! Knowing how nervous I get around media and huge crowds, this was an event held in my comfort zone. So I invited close family and friends to the event and the Céline team took care of the rest of the details.
The event was basically to get a preview of Céline's Fall 2014 ready-to-wear and accessories collection, where guests were able to pre-order items, and to browse and instantly shop the Spring/Summer 2014 collection available currently in-store. There was a selection of runway pieces that were displayed for the first time during the event, so guests got a first look at these limited pieces. Models were flown in from Dubai to model the Fall 2014 collection during the event, so that guests can get a better look at the pieces worn.
I personally loved the vibe, very comfortable and not pertinacious (I hope the guests felts the same way too!). Drinks and canapés were served throughout the event, and everyone left with a small Céline goodie bag (will share a photo soon). All guests had the opportunity to get some tips on Céline's merchandise by representatives from Céline Paris, and share their feedback on the brand. I think it was a success!
I'd like to thank each and every person who showed-up at the event, it wouldn't have been amazing without your presence and your constant support. Love you all! And of course special thanks to the entire Céline team for believing in me and for this amazing opportunity. Now I leave you with photos of the event.
I love these fashion duo! Chic Mommy and mini mommy me!
