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 www.brands4friends.de.
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.
Keely Stocker Digital Editor Drapers, Michael Cody, Leon Bailey Green www.leonbaileygreen.com and me.
The business has significantly grown over the 3 years and secret sales have worked with over 450 brands during that time offering everyone’s favourite brands at up to 80% off. Do check the latest sales at www.secretsales.com

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. www.sapphiresmodel.com
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!
