Rachel Gilbert Flagship Store Opening

Last Wednesday Lewie and I attended the Rachel Gilbert store opening in Paddington. It was such a treat as her collections are always so gorgeous. Thank you to Roxy and the gorgeous Betties for a perfect evening.

We arrived and were greeted by the aroma of a gorgeous floral window display courtesy of Grandiflora. I was then distracted by Rachel's latest collection. Many of the gowns this collection features her signature silver sequins but she has also introduced a few gowns in a stunning neon lime which are just perfect for summer nights! I think I may have even found the perfect engagement party dress!
It was an intimate event with the likes of Vanessa Gilbert, sister to and owner of Rachel Gilbert, Tom Williams, Rachel's lovely boyfriend who Lewie has come to know over the years due to his involvement with the Swans (Tom has been a fantastic performer in the Red Kite celebrity charity matches over the years), Corbin Harris, Laura Csortan and Sally Singleton.

The boutique itself is just stunning. Luxurious, sleek and elegant with floor to ceiling mirrors, plenty of light, which showcase the clothes in all their glory.

There was no shortage of delicious Pommery, this along with the most incredible cheeses, freshly sliced prosciutto (which I just had to sample) and fresh peaches added to the Parisian chic feel of Rachel Gilbert's flagship store.

Check out Rachel's gorgeous Cruise 2011 collection here and shop online for all your perfect new years dress!
