Last week I attended the Forever New collection unveiling event with my sister and lovely friend from work, Chantelle. The collection is called Wild Orchid and has a beautiful palette of pinks and blues which I adore plus the signature Forever New floral.
The event, as always, was a pretty and lovely setting at the Sandton City branch. Most collections are worn by models but Forever New chose a great group of women to showcase the clothing this time around. Some of these women are actually friends of mine such as the uber-cool Sureshnie from 5FM and queen of PR Melanie Ramgee. I also loved seeing Allegro, Mokgads and Roxy Burger amongst the other Wild Orchids for the night.
Many macaroons and mocktails (and singing Love is An Open Door from Frozen with Sush) later, I must say, Forever New always throws a perfect gathering! I’m still not too sure how I missed so many of my Twitter friends (like LadyZaa and Le1ghLo) at the event, but there will definitely be a next time! Perhaps it was due to the many DSLR selfies being taken by Chants and I – who has time for phone selfies anyway. ;)
Speaking of Chantelle (otherwise now known as Demi Lovato/Ariana Grande/Selena Gomez), she’ll be starting her blogging journey very soon and I’m so excited to share her blog link with you! After many discussions at her desk, I can’t wait to be seeing her content which will be a good mix of indie music, fashion, beauty and hopefully some type of Asian influence (ie: manga, anime and k-pop/j-pop) that got us to become friends.
I want everything in the latest Forever New collection and with the 15% discount offered during the night, it was tempting. Alas, I did not come out with anything – except for the super pretty purse that came in the gift bag. I think I’ll be heading to Forever New soon though to grab a piece or two from the collection – LOVE IT!
Make sure to head to your closest Forever New store to take a look at the wonderful collection, Wild Orchid! Here are some photos from the event that I took.
