Part two of last Thursday night’s fashion party extravaganza took me to the heart of Covent Garden where I had been invited along to celebrate the launch of the new & improved Burberry Brit store. Now any soiree thrown by Burberry was going to attract some pretty high profile guests and I was beyond thrilled to be included amongst the hoards of famous fashion faces parading their stylish selves through the state-of-the-art store.

All in all, it was a thoroughly British affair with miniscule versions of classic English dishes being served by a bevvy of rather gorgeous waiters. Homegrown beauties and Burberry models Poppy and Cara Delevigne, Lily Donaldson, Edie Campbell and Tali Lennox mingled with stylish singer Ellie Goulding and the man-of-the-moment himself, Christopher Bailey. We were treated to a breathtaking performance by British acoustic band, “Life in Film” and as darkness fell model/DJ Tom Guinness took to the decks and really got us in the party mood.

After getting over the the initial self-consciousness caused by wearing bright pink to an event where everyone else seemed to have gone for effortless understatement, I knocked back multiple glasses of champagne, caught up with familiar faces and generally enjoyed the evening. As we Brits say, a bloody good time was had by all and despite my stiletto induced agony I could happily have continued until the wee hours. Luckily enough this was not an option as whilst Thursday may be THE fashionable night to party, this sadly doesn’t excuse most of us from work the next day.
Love Ella. X
