Michael Kors and Tatler's Kate Reardon welcomed Jourdan Dunn, Edie Campbell and a number of Britain’s favorite trendsetters at the Saatchi Gallery on Thursday night to celebrate the opening of Tatler’s English Roses 2017.
Bringing to life a print feature from the magazine’s August issue, the multimedia exhibit highlights 26 stars on the rise through a series of digital portraits and exclusive behind-the-scenes content, shot by acclaimed photographer David Burton. Ten of the women, ranging from models and dancers to poets and chefs, were photographed in the Fall 2017 Michael Kors Collection: Lady Lola Crichton-Stuart, Ella Richards, Tess Ward, Lady Kitty Spencer, Aziya Aldridge-Moore, Renee Stewart, Greta Bellamacina, Clara McGregor, Laura Murray and Bee Beardsworth.
“These women represent the balance of youth and sophistication, polish and ease, knowledge and curiosity, that’s necessary for life today,” said Michael Kors.
Tatler Editor Kate Reardon commented: “As the oldest magazine in the world, Tatler has long been dedicated to chronicling the most fabulous members of British high society. More than anything, we understand the special alchemy that creates an It-girl – that rare combination of beauty, charisma and timeliness which, happily, is synonymous with Michael Kors and their tradition of championing young rising stars the world over.”
Spread throughout three retro-glamorous, experiential rooms at the Saatchi Gallery in London, the party’s 700 guests were treated to live performances by DJ Henri, The Postmen, Josh McLellan Ludlow and 2 ManyDJs. During the night, guests also had the chance to get in front of the lens with an interactive video booth, dance the night away on the main dance floor and satisfy late night sweet cravings with cotton candy. The night concluded in typical London style with a shower, luckily this one consisted of pink balloons, not rain.
