‘Joie De Vivre’
A magical evening of entertainment, art, music, culture and cutting edge couture.
Ethereal stardust creatures glimmering en pointe, tracing fairy shadows in filigree, antique lace, Celtic fairytales, live music, Swing, jazz, classical compositions and Holly Jade O'Leary's debut fantasy fine art collection which combines poetry, textile art, high fashion, dance and performance art by The Jewelled Moon Theatre Company, accessorised by Lily FLo Jewellery. Masquerades are available on entrance, though not compulsory. Black tie and evening wear is encouraged.
We invite you to step into a fantasia theatre, set at Library, private members' club in Covent Garden. An enchanting timeless world drawing influence from neoclassicism, the Rococo period, worldwide mythologies, the Zeigfeld Follies and Berlin based music sessions: with magic, live music and so much more including 'The Story of the Fairy Foxes with Wings of the Night Mists' starring Emma Dabiri. An exquisite and compelling performance adapted from a Ugandan fairytale to raise awareness on the use of mercury within the mining process and encourage the purchase of responsibly sourced jewellery. This showcase will creatively tell the story of positive sustainability in the arts, jewellery and fashion industries in a thought provoking, socially conscious way.
In addition, the evening will feature a high fashion fantasy: ‘The Fairy Emporium in The Land of the Jewelled Moons'. Hand sewn corseting, distressed velvet, reworked textiles, an abundance of crystals and gemstones layered like stardust. Holly Jade O’Leary’s vivid imagination has run wild creating a luxury art collection perfect for all occasions.
The collection is accompanied by the Dance Til Dawn collection by London Designer Jeweller, Lily Flo Jewellery. “Holly kindly asked us to work on this exceptional project with her, to which we are truly honoured and thrilled. We've worked with Holly before and this project seemed like a perfect fit from the concept. Our Autumn Winter 2016 collection, Dance Til Dawn, is inspired by The Great Gatsby; the glamour and decadence of the 1920's, with iconic stars and moons and sustainably sourced gemstones and just like Holly we've taken this with a very modern London vibe."
This is an evening not to be missed. From sustainability and responsible sourcing in the fashion, arts and jewellery industries to fantasia theatre, couture fashion fantasy and so much more.
