A look back at the Christmas period and my New Year
Happy New Year Everyone! Now we are in the midst of January I can’t help but look back my favourite moments from the Christmas period and my New Year spent in sunny Miami.
Being invited to watch Kylie Minogue kick started the season of parties. Kylie is a really old friend of mine and I just love to watch her perform, gorgeous and as talented as ever here is a picture of us backstage after the show.
Following after my evening with Kylie, I was also invited to a private screening of Star Wars and after party hosted by Will.i.am. I am a Star Wars fan but an even bigger fan of Will.i.am, so it was a perfect evening and ended on a high partying with Will.i.am. To add to my celebrity performances I had the pleasure of being invited to watch my good friend Eric Underwood perform in the Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House. The performance was magical and I felt privileged to be able to watch the so incredibly talented Eric perform. The choreography was stunning and I loved to see the beautiful detail and obvious time that had gone into the costumes, you can see Eric in action pictured here.
After Christmas spent in my hometown in Wales I left the rain for the sandy beaches of Miami. As I have mentioned before Miami is one of my favourite cities to visit in the world, no matter what time of year I go it never disappoints. Miami was the celebrity hot spot for New Year and so the city was buzzing. I stayed at the Edition Hotel Miami with my great friends Melissa Odabash and Antonio Quest, here we are enjoying life in the fabulous pool!
Amongst the parties and the sunshine my time in Miami was particularly memorable as I met some incredible and very influential people. With my love to travel it was an honour to met Alan Faena, the Hotelier who is famed for his architectural brilliance stretching from Argentina to Miami. Alan Faena is very much the man of the moment as he is currently building what is to be known as the Faena district in Miami made up of luxury apartments, a fabulous hotel and even a cultural centre. I had such a fantastic evening with him I can’t wait to see the district in its entirety when it is finished.
Miami seems like a distant memory as its go go go at the studio as my collection for London Fashion Week is well underway!
