I'm sorry I've not written for a while, I've been busy with personal matters and then there was THE parties!!
It promised to be an incredible weekend and it didn't disappoint. The invitation came a few months ago, in the form of a video, more of a save the date. We were invited to Florence, to attend the 30th birthday party of Edgardo Osorio, the designer of the ultra-chic Aquazzura brand. The official hardcover, two party invite came later, all because a lot of prep was required. More on that later...
Arrival on wednesday, and soon another night out looms, an invitation to Eva Cavalli's son's 30th birthday in their Tuscan Villa the next evening. Let the celebrations begin!!
The next day, Friday, was the evening of the Eccentric Jungle themed party. What that meant was anyone's idea, definatively there would be lots of feathers and an excess of leopard print, but that's not the way I chose to play it. I wore an amazingly crafted orange extremely mini dress by Alves/ Goncalves, a sort of brocade texture in the shape of birds and feathers. Accessorized of course with an exotic pair of Aquazzura heels in gold and coral.
The invitees went all out as did the hosts, it was fabulously decorated, with dancers from Rajasthan and Africa, and many areas decorated in the jungle theme.
The next day was the Surrealist Ball, and I decided at the last minute to wear a dress that had belonged to my Grandmother. She had previously worn the dress in 19 and I felt it looked surreal with the awesome headpiece that Valentim Quaresma was creating for me!
The developing idea for my surrealist headpiece by Valentim Quaresma.
A master's tools to make masterpieces.
The beautiful dress, very meaningful to me and my Grandmother in her dress.
Surrealist corners, and Eva Cavalli and I.
And that's all folks, just a huge thank-you to the Aquazzura Boys for their incredible hospitality, graciousness, and generosity!!!
