Dear All,

We hope our Summer newsletter finds the sun shining brightly where you are.  We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new website, which illustrates our range of bespoke events services and highlights a great selection of some of our favourite work.  Please click here to view.

The last quarter has seen our annual return to the Cote D’Azur, the celebration of Browns 40th Anniversary and the launch of The Haiti Project with a fantastic fundraiser for The Reuben Foundation, raising an impressive GBP 400K for this extremely worthy cause.  The ongoing success of Quintessentially Soho continues with the permanent licence hearing scheduled for August and we are  proud to have staged the first Quintessentially Awards, in association with The British Virgin Islands, where our signature style of glamour combined with attention to detail was commented on in fashionable press including Marie Claire and Vogue.

Next up for us will be the Elephant Family fundraising event this week, the culmination of an extraordinary campaign.  We wish you all a fine few months and remain delighted to consult on any of your event requirements.

Best wishes,
Anabel & Caroline

   40th Birthday Party Back To The Top

Lively 40th birthday party held at a private address in London with costumed hosts and a variety of themed areas including a club-style dancefloor.

"I wanted to express how  grateful I am to you all for being so amazing. You gave us a night that exceeded even my expectations, I doubt that a single guest will ever go to another party quite like it in their lifetime. I personally felt like I was walking on air all night and couldn't believe the level of detail and commitment that you put in. If there were an Oscar for this kind of thing - you would clean up."

   Browns 40th Anniversary Back To The Top

Dinner and party for fashion industry A-list to celebrate 40 years of Brown's at the Raphael Penthouses in Soho.  Two floors of this new developments hosted an exhibition of fashion and photography while another floor saw a rocking party DJed by the legendary Greg Wilson. Guests enjoyed a sunset dinner, hosted by Joan Burstein CBE and prepared by Mark Hix, in the penthouse where guests included Oscar de la Renta, Suzy Menkes and Gareth Pugh.

"Anabel and her team understood the way in which we at Browns worked and adapted to that. They were more than just working on the project; they took it on as their own and became an extended part of our team to facilitate making the 40th Anniversary Exhibition, Dinners and Anniversary Party run smoothly and faultlessly. Considering the hurdles, this was no mean feat. I would use them again in a heartbeat - we could not have done it without them."
