  • All the fun of the fair – Harvey Nichols Vogue Fashion’s Night Out

    In light of the huge success of last year’s Harvey Nichols Fashion’s Night Out concept – Harvey Nichols Haberdashery, we decided to put the designers to work again this year, customising unique, one-off t-shirts by creating the “Harvey Nichols Fashion Fairground” complete with Designers Stalls, Victorian-style ice cream man and jam jar bar!

    A fashion all-star cast comprised of Markus Lupfer, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Illincic, JW Anderson, Peter Pilotto, Christopher Raeburn, Emma Cook, Marios Schwab and Louise Gray spent the evening adding their signature style to Vogue Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts, much to the delight of the ever growing crowd. A huge thank you everyone for being involved especially the designers for being so good natured and crafty under pressure.

  • Silver fleet – Take Me to the River

    We do love a party on a boat. There is something magical about stepping onboard a vessel on the Thames that makes me instantly think good times. The Silver Sturgeon is the most luxurious boat on the Thames. We were delighted to be asked to collaborate with Wood’s Silver Fleet and Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts on the launch of a new venture. From now on, amazing creations from Jamie’s galley, complemented by our bespoke event-design service, will be featured on the Silver Sturgeon’s events.

    SilverFleet2

    For the launch we decided to echo the ethos of Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts and their farm-to-table philosophy and create an abundant, botanical feeling featuring fragrant herb-clad walls and bar – all accented with opulent flashes of bronze, gold and teal. We had the fabulous Black and Lilac DJing – Annie Monroe and Paula Goldstein’s new DJ project.

    The launch party coincided magically with the recent heat wave. We found ourselves sipping cocktails on the deck of the Silver Sturgeon on one of the balmiest Friday London evenings ever. Sublime. We can’t wait for lots more boat parties, that feeling of being on a boat in the City is just too seductive.  Take me to the river!

    Our giant balloon installation filled the atrium with the perfect contrast to the slick, geometric surroundings.

    Divine Bigbury Bay oysters – Jamie’s three favourite ways – sweet onion and vinegar, bloody mary style and ‘yin and yang’ a blend of lime, chilli, and soy. Their food is pretty fabulous.

    Our living herb bar. Planted and ready for picking for delicious botanical cocktails.

    Gin cocktails by Sweet and Chilli were served in classic british jam jars and vintage milk bottles – a nod to Jamie’s traditional culinary values and patriotism.
