A Date With
Well look what we have here! My first fashion event in over a year, back in the capital on a golden spring evening and loving every second of the occasion I may add - that's if that smile didn't already give it away haha
You know I don't often dedicate a full blog post to events but my first acceptance of an invite since March 2020 feels like a joyous milestone I just have to mark here on Inthefrow. And of course when Dior invite you to discover the newest summer capsule of Dioriviera by Maria Grazia Chiuri as well as their takeover of Alto @ Selfridges on the rooftop - well of course that warrants a blog post!
I hope you adore the images that Kyle was kind enough to shoot with me at the launch of Dior @ Alto and I hope you love finding out a little more about the brands amazing collaboration, as well as the newest reinvention of Dioriviera for 2021.
PS - For full transparency I wasn't asked to post about this incredible event but after over a year of no get togethers with some of my favourite brands and colleagues, I just couldn't resist!
