Partying with make up artist par excellence Mary Greenwell

At Mary Greenwell's launch for her deliciously fruity and fabulous perfume, Plum, which took place at the Connaught's gloriously refurbished ballroom.  Weren't we the lucky ones sipping on jolly good Champagne and eating really good canapes provided by that famous kitchen of such a wonderful old English hotel.
Bumped into my dear friend Stephen Jones on the way in then on to mingle with many fashion fabulous people.
Chats with Penelope Tree (much to my ex fashion student and just 22 year old Press Assistant's awe) never the less a conversation about fashion icons ensued. Man talk with Venetia Scott, sharing chat and tartan attire with the lovely Amada Harlech (of Chanel no less).  And picture posing with my dear friend Selina Blow.
Selina is also the mother of one of my Goddaughters called Violet, (who I have blogged about before) and you will never guess what?  Little Violet is now a cover star and I can see it won't be long until she too is mingling with the fashion fabulous at the Connaught ballroom or some such equally glamorous place.

The weekend is nearly here...

How about a little cocktail ring bling for the coming weekend?  Not all at once of course.
I know which one is my favourite... what's yours?
It's been a busy here at HQ, planning press day, new collections arriving and I've even moved house.
So grab your best ring and your favourite tipple and say chin chin!

Introducing Talitha...

I briefly touched on our new collection in a post last week.  But I really am so excited about the new Talitha Collection that I wanted to talk about the inspiration behind it; the iconic and fabulous Talitha Getty.

One of the 1960’s fashion icons Talitha Getty was the unofficial queen of Marrakech and boho luxe.

I wanted the Talitha Collection to embody her decadent, outrageously indulgent life style and the myth that surrounded her, yet of course still remaining consistent with the understated and simple elegance you have come to expect from the Dinny Hall brand.

When designing, I looked to Moroccan and Persian pattern from architecture and textiles.  The delicate collection plays with repeat motifs and tessellation; it is crafted in solid sterling silver and 18K gold vermeil.

 My lovely god daughter, Alice, modelling the Large Talitha Earring. 
A statement earring which we think is party perfect and holiday chic!  It is selling fast already, I better get myself a pair before they go!
