ConSept, Chelsea’s luxury lifestyle boutique, teamed up with Action for Children, hosting an exclusive shopping event last week. An array of celebrities, VIPs and influencers attended including Kimberley Garner, Nicholas Oakwell, Brian Friedman, Daisy de Villeneuve, Naomi Isted, Emilio de la Morena, Jai’me Jan, Olivia Cox and Prince Cassius and Lady Nadia Essex came to support the event. Guests were welcomed with a glass of bubbly as they perused the store’s luxury offering of Hermès, Versace and Baccarat.
ConSept owners, Ali Samli and Goran Svilar, who are closely linked to the charity, were delighted to see so many high-profile celebrities and clientele support the night; with 15% of all purchases going to the charity.
Dr. Rita Rakus and Dr. Galyna Selezneva kindly made personal donations to Action for Children; and Mr. Jari Ovaskainen also donated, continuing his ongoing support for ConSept's work with Action for Children.
The event marks the exciting launch of ConSept’s exclusive collection with Nicholas Oakwell. ConSept will be the couturier's first stockist and the evening will see ready-to-wear pieces from both the autumn/winter 2016 collection, as well as a selection of couture pieces.
The evening also ushered in an exclusive edit from London Fashion Week designer, Julien Macdonald.
ConSept resides in the old post office just opposite the Chelsea Town Hall and rivals the world’s most talked about concept spaces. A mammoth Fabergé egg is flanked by one-of-kind designer fashion while eccentric furnishings and mini chandeliers are interspersed with exotic jewellery, lavish cosmetics and works from renowned fashion illustrators. The eclectic curation brings an unparalleled world edit to London’s most prestigious shopping quarter.
The layout and brands change every six months and there is always a new label to discover. Luxury products include limited edition pieces from Hermès, Versace, Baccarat, St Luis and Vistosi. Stacks of international models, European dignitaries and a host of international pop stars have been spotted at ConSept, and the store was recently profiled on Channel 5’s How the Other Half Live.
Owners, Ali Samli and Goran Svilar have positioned ConSept to sit within their high-end portfolio that includes luxury property, interior architecture and design and premium wines and spirits. The entrepreneurs have spent the last several years working on private parties with British Vogue, the WGSN Global Fashion Awards and key events over London Fashion Week.
It was a fabulous evening for a great cause and so lovely to see some of my fab friends. I was utterly obsessed in the entire store. Head down and check out this fabulous store..
