When Elle Fashionwear asked me to host a 'Coffee Morning With A Style Diva' at their boutique in Forum Mall to introduce their Spring Summer '13 collection, it almost seemed too good to be true! A brand specializing in French fashion was inviting me to talk about their latest collection to my friends & acquaintances and share styling tips - it sure sounded promising, specially when the event was to be accompanied by coffee & cupcakes!!!
So.......an excited me started inviting equally enthusiastic girls from all over the city who I knew would love to be a part of this fun event! And boy, oh, boy!!! What an amazingly fun event it was!!!!!! :D
I reached the Elle boutique bright & early on that Sunday morning...and soon after, the guests started pouring in. And to say that they were mesmerized by the sight that greeted them, will be an understatement!
The beautiful summer hues that decked the racks, the chic Elle décor, the stacks of Elle magazine, the uber-pretty trial rooms, the perfectly styled mannequins and last, but not the least, neatly arranged cups of chilled coffee, rows of yummy chocolate cupcakes & arrays of snacks - it was a sight to behold!
After rounds of coffee & cupcakes, we started going through the collections and I must say, Elle's SS '13 range is a fashionista's delight for the summers! The sorbet shades, the floral prints, the chic styles & the eye-catching bags & shoes made the girls swoon with sartorial delight!!!
In fact, some of them even tried on a few pieces while I styled them to create complete looks. An overdose of posing & preening followed and those with cameras went trigger-happy. Most ended giving in to their temptations & buying themselves something from Elle's awesome collection and the gift voucher (courtesy Elle Fashionwear) that they had got for attending the event only helped! ;)
All in all, it turned out to be one of the best Sundays of my life! A crazily fun event with my crazily fun gang of girls - what more could I ask for?
