When the invite to The Secret Garden event and fashion show popped into our inbox I was pretty damn excited. Two minutes after finding out it was being held at my favourite London nightspot Mahiki, I was calling BFF Ailsa (above) and starting outfit planning. The last time I was invited to Mahiki for a birthday do, but couldn’t make it due to work, a pal bumped into my second favourite Zac, Zac Efron. She promises me that she gave him my number…he must have misplaced it!
The event showcased swimwear and lingerie from up and coming designers from all over the UK, with lots of product displays dotted around the club. Designers included Alanna Rose Designs (whose gorgeous white swimwear can be seen above), Poshtotti and the whole night was sponsored by MAKAN. I’ve managed to whittle the designers down to my top 3 for your reading pleasure. Let’s dive right in!
If you are a regular reader you will know it has to be at least 31.5C before we will go tightless, so we are always on the lookout for new fun designs. Unfortunately, it’s super dark in Mahiki, so the above photo doesn’t do the quality of the tights justice, but Pamela Mann really did have a great display! If you are a dress and tights kinda gal, you’ll definitely find something you like on their website.
Last but not least, I’d like to introduce Blackspade, who do not seem to have a website, but their cute practical undies are available here. I was lucky enough to receive a blue set at the event, but alas, you won’t be seeing them feature in OOTD post anytime soon. I’m definitely not that brave, and I wouldn’t want to put you off your lunch!
After the fashion show, which featured models wearing items from each of the designers, we had another quick browse then headed upstairs for lots of cocktails and even more dancing! I can’t wait to go back. Hopefully with added Zac!
Time to detox!
