Once Upon a Holiday is inspired by the spectacular and dynamic Holiday window displays of global retailers that are always so highly anticipated and the event was a recreation of the latest campaign and collection – complete with dreamy streetscape inspired vitrines, grand wrought iron gates, winter trees, glistening flakes, snow-dusted grounds, a moon, stars, clouds, gold gilded mirrors and crystal chandeliers.

 

30 budding ballerinas twirling in their sparkly sequins and crystal beaded tutus were spoilt to an exclusive ballet class with former Australian Ballet ballerina, the treasured and esteemed Brooke Lockett, who guided them through some ballet moves.

 

In true festive style, a decadent antipasto grazing table of indulgent cheeses, olives, juicy chocolate coated strawberries and plump figs, alongside a scrumptious selection of delectable sweet petit-fours such as delicate creamy eclairs and profiteroles, pretty iced shortbread biscuits and light as air meringues and macarons, brought smiles to little hungry faces, as mothers sipped champagne whilst chatting and taking in the beautiful magical surrounds.

 

Friends of the brand, VIP, celebrity and social mums were invited with their daughters to join Tutu Du Monde for the party. 

 

Guests included: Andrea Rembeck (Owner and Creative Director of Tutu Du Monde) Former Australian Ballet Dancer – Brooke Lockett; Terry Biviano and her daughter Azura; Kate Waterhouse with daughters Sophia and Grace; Katy Farage with daughters Charlotte, Sienna, and Alexia; Sarah Ingham and her daughter Domino; Eva Galambos with daughters Alexa and Paloma; Kirsten King with daughters Charlie, Willow and Harper; Senior Fashion Editor at Vogue Kate Darvill with daughters Matilda, Stella and Olive; Senior Fashion Editor at Harper's Bazaar with Daughter Eadie; Zena K'Dor and her daughter Sienna.

A special mention to all the talented and hard working vendors involved in making the day a visual feast and absolute success!
