Secrets and Sapphires...what great parties to go to!

We gathered at Home House on a balmy evening, sipping champagne and eating scrummy canapés, to listen to Michael Cody, one of the four founders, tell us the story of this wonderful on-line private shopping emporium.

Secret Sales was founded by Michael, Silvia and brothers Nish and Sach Kukadia and has recently received investment from the largest on-line private shopping club in Germany

I chatted to Sergio Dias, Chairman and ex Carrefour and LVMH, who was full of praise for the team who have built such a success so quickly. He to praised both the brothers -Sach for his excellent buying eye and Nish for his operational management.

Sapphire models

Neely and Ian joined by a host of beautiful people

My next fab night out was at the Sapphire Model Management London launch party at the Billiard Room of the Sanderson Hotel. A  mixture Sapphires’ models, fashion stylists and editors, film directors, designers and artists joined managing partners Neely Reyes and Ian Warren to celebrate the launch.

We listened to renowned DJ, Jeffery Louis Reed and sipped cocktails made from Aussie Spirits’ Vodka O & Kinky Rum, and Jameson Irish Whiskey. We washed this down with Mojito, chocolate-banana and coconut-lime cupcakes from Sweetie Darlings.

The VIP gift bags were overflowing with beauty products, drinks, sumptuous vouchers, a lovely handwritten scroll from Neely and Ian, and even clothes! I wore my special pink dress from Vero Moda the next day and loved it!

BKS: Is it a skirt? Is it a shrug? Is it a scarf? Is it a shawl? Check out this extremely versatile travel and wardrobe ‘must’ the brainchild of Skye Lyselle .

  • I have a skrug - actually, I have two, I absolutely love them. Everyone always wants to know where i got them from. No matter where I am in the world, women always ask. A must have for any wardrobe - a bikinis best friend.

  • The Skrug from Fit4Fashion247 is the most amazing piece of clothing I own...or should I say clothing as I own two! It's so versatile and not just for leisure or beach use, I wear mine most often as a trendy one shoulder top but also as a skirt and halterneck. It's also blissfully comfortable to wear, washes well and doesn't crease so is perfect for busy people everywhere. I wouldn't be without mine, you really don't need much else in your wardrobe.

  • Wow, I have a skrug! I've been thrilled with mine and the best thing about it is that it's pretty unique and makes a great talking point, people want to know where it came from. Mine's black and works with just about anything, the versatility is great - a very clever design. Would love to see more stuff from fit4fashion247 . . . .
