Yesterday, on Saturday 16 November, we hosted our annual festive shopping event with our media partners Stella at the beautiful Somerset House.
Guests were treated to shopping from Bobbi Brown, John Lewis & Partners, Kurt Geiger, Hobbs, LK Bennett, Jigsaw, Me + Em, Vestiaire Collective, Rixo, Lily & Lionel, Hope and many more. Thanks to all their shopping, we raised a record-breaking £90,000, all of which will go towards helping unemployed women into work.
Alongside our brands, we were supported by a team of influencers; Lydia Elise Millen, Camille Charriere, Jada Sezer, Katherine Ormerod, AJ Odudu, Kelly Eastwood aka. The London Chatter and Alex Stedman aka. The Frugality, all of whom donated fabulous pieces from their own wardrobes.
After a session of shopping, our guests enjoyed treatments from Secret Spa and a delicious cocktail and snack from Silk Road Distillers and Pollen + Grace.
VIP ticket holders were also treated to a panel talk with Caroline Barrett, Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey, Angellica Bell, Henrieta Rix and Marianne Jones, who spoke about the importance of sustainability and how to shop ethically.
A huge thank you to Stella for being such an incredible media partner, Somerset House for the perfect event space, to each brand that generously took part and of course to all our guests for supporting Smart Works – we hope you loved it as much as we did.
