Iconic luxury boutique Feathers recently celebrated 40 years in Knightsbridge, and I was there to celebrate with them. Founded in 1969 the family business is now run by the second and third generation of the Burstein family. Together with son Robert, Husband and wife Peter and Suzanne Burstein continually source new designs from emerging talents from all over the world to offer their loyal customer base an innovative, eclectic and unique shopping experience.
Despite a full house, Suzanne, who was secretly worried that nobody would come to the party, kindly took the time to personally talk me through the designs on display – a great mix of tactile fabrics and structured silhouettes in a dark, autumnal colour palette. Even the designs of one of my personal favourite from London Fashion Week, TOGA, were featured (read the article here).
Alcoholic and very refreshing non-alcoholic drinks were served in abundance, the music was catchy, the crowd eclectic – all three generations of the Burstein family were present to celebrate, which reflected in the age range present at the party – and the canapés served were, to my eternal delight, all vegetarian, all healthy and incredibly tasty. The Burstein’s definitely know how to party in style, and I’m so happy that I was given the opportunity to become part of the birthday celebrations. Thank you Feathers!
