• Mod Operandi London Launch at Cafe Royale

    A staircase lined with French-maids and playful cheetahs on leashes was the entrance to Moda Operandi’s dinner at the Café Royal in London.

    As London Fashion Week began we created a dinner party in celebration of Moda Operandi. On entrance guests were guided through the ballroom by hundreds of lit hurricane lamps out to the terrace where our floral bar housed our cocktail master creating botanical cocktails infused with crystals and gemstones, and accented with bespoke Moda operandi scents.

    Guests then sat down to a table scape of peonies and roses in bespoke brass tubes, with menus and placement by one of our favourite illustrators Donald Roberston.

  • Sybarite Jewellery Dinner

    We designed and produced a dinner for Sybarite Jewellery hosted by Natalia Vodianova at Zaha Hadid’s Sackler Gallery.Taking inspiration from Sybarite’s jewellery line we created a table of moving ballerinas and carousels who were set on an illuminated silver runner. Guests were greeted by a life sized snow globe containing a whimsical performance to music. Inside, the air of romanticism continued  with snow globe placements and a dreamy mirror moon photo set. Following dinner guests pulled bespoke crackers and one lucky lady found the key to a pair of Sybarite earrings, for those who weren’t so lucky on leaving the party they received a goodie box filled with bespoke glass engraved Sybarite baubles and chocolates created in the shape of the Sybarite print. A fun way to start the Christmas festivities….







  • Louis Vuitton : Charlotte Perriand Dinner – Miami Art Basel

    Inspired by Charlotte Perriand’s aesthetic, we designed colour blocked table runners filled with flowers which ran down bespoke wooden chevron tables. Noguchi lanterns floated in the sky to create a magical setting for guests to enjoy dinner under Miami palms and in front of the Louis Vuitton Charlotte Perriand installation.

  • Berluti : Miami Art Basel

    To celebrate Miami Art Basel, Berluti held a cocktail party at their store in honour of the Dutch artist Maarten Baas before guests were guided by Berluti clad models to the de la Cruz gallery for dinner.

    We created rich oil clothed table tops harnessed with rope and gold eyelets, these were decorated with bespoke copper tubes of varying heights filled with masculine plant heads. Festoon lighting strung from the ceiling created a warm glow for guests to enjoy a menu of Berluti Stone Crab, Pistachio Crusted Lamb and icecream served from a traditional cart. Donald Robertson’s illustrated stone crab bibs and Berluti Miami menus created a quirky feature for guests to take away.

  • Just Married ~ How to Celebrate Your Wedding in Style According to Fiona Leahy

    It has always been a dream to share our ideas and vision and I am so excited to have collaborated with Gestalten to write this book on weddings. The celebration of marriage is one of the most evocative occasions most of us will experience, either as a participant or as a guest. There is an alchemy involved that is completely unique and I feel incredibly fortunate to have forged a career that gives me the chance to experience first-hand the personal mix of imagination and artistry that is unique to each wedding.
