After Susie Bubble gave me the chance to enter her competition to win two invites to the Hermes silk ball and I managed to achieve the goal. I recieved possibly the most beautiful piece of post I have ever recieved. Which was a good indication of the night ahead.
After spending a year in a long distance relationship (melbourne to shanghai) with my boyfriend, it was inevitable he would be my dateeee. Unfortunately we pulled 'funny' (slash rather hideous) faces & so I've strategically cropped our faces out. My dress is a Balinese number & my shoes are from Mango.
The ball itself was held in Camden's Koko, which was TRANSFORMMMMED. To enter, we were led through a tunnel lined with hermes silk scarfs and greeted by beautiful staff in some incredible head pieces and masks, including this women who sported a hefty bird cage atop her head the whole night.
The dress code was simply 'metamorphose into beauty or beast with masks and fantical make-up'. This inevetibaly led people to question their choices, but with the attendees being a mixed group of bloggers, artists, competition winners and fashion lovers; no one failed to look boring. I wore an egyptian head piece I aquired actually in Eqypt and spent the night pretending the beads were long glorious locks of hair ;)
I cannot forget to mention the incredible spread of food that was offered. Additional extras that Hermes provided, included transfer tattoos, an array of macaroons, mousses, chocolates, mini burgers and fruit platters aswell as a well choreographed dance routine that all on the dance floor learnt and performed in their fancy attire.
All in all. The night was a success. A fun filled night, with every effort taken to make the night so gloriousss. Thankyou Hermes.
