Event: DVF exclusive shopping event
When: Wednesday 11th March 2015
Where: DVF store 25 Bruton Street, London W1
Thanks to my Grazia magazine subscription I was invited to an exclusive shopping event at the Diane Von Furstenberg store in Mayfair last week. I arrived to find the store full of women and a handful of men shopping, drinking bubbly and nibbling on tiny macaroons.
Once my name was checked off the guest list I was greeted with a £50 voucher to spend on the new SS15 collection and a waiter offering me a drink, my kind of evening. Of course me being me I spotted the photo booth straight away. Then I saw Brittany Hampton who won the very first House of DVF televised competition. Brittany is now the DVF brand ambassador. I had to get involved in the photo booth and obviously have a chat with Brittany.
After I managed to scoop the last oversized clutch with the DVF lips seen in my photo booth pic I made a beeline for Brittany. My friend Neh was also keen to speak to Brittany so we decided what we were going to ask before we got our 5 minutes with her. When it was finally our turn to speak to Brittany she complimented me on my coat, (I wore the yellow one) told us how jealous she was that we could layer up and for winter and that she bought a few new coats for her London trip. I asked Brittany what best part of being the DVF ambassador was and she replied with such enthusiasm that this tour was the best part as she had already been to Germany and was heading to Miami the next morning. We then spoke about her new found fame and how she even gets spotted in the nail shop.
It was a pleasure talking with Brittany, she is so down to earth and of course she had no objections to taking a few pics. The new DVF collection is fun, bright and the bralets keep it young. If only DVF herself had stopped by…
