With the unveiling of the much anticipated LUMINANCE store around the corner, the 24th of July in fact, Grazia Magazine Editor Danielle Weakley and her uber glam team hosted a super chic trends event last week at the Luminance Pop Up Store in Hyde Park Corner where must-have “summer sizzlers” were readily available to purchase for those lucky enough traveling to warmer climates but for us whom are still denouncing the cold winter months, a 40% “help us move” sale on Winter buys were held.
LUMINANCE is “a new take on opulent shopping” with a space designed by world renowned Interior Designer John Jacob to compliment only the best designer labels the world has seen which will be on offer at LUMINANCE. The space is a design gallery aimed at creating varied spaces that appeal to different customers. It’s said to be a magnificent retail store, unlike anything we’ve seen in South Africa before. We can’t wait to experience it for ourselves.
To us is seems like LUMINANCE has aligned themselves with only the best of the best in the world which in our opinion almost guarantees a success story. An exciting partnership, which is good enough to mention and which will ensure that LUMINANCE is the crème de la crème within the fashion realm of South Africa, is the one formed with Nedbank Private Wealth, the international private wealth management brand within the JSE-listed Nedbank Group. Nedbank Private Wealth is considered a leader in integrated private client wealth management in SA and remains one of the largest wealth management businesses. Vince Boulle, Executive Head of Nedbank Private Wealth says “one of our key objectives is to create distinctive experiences for our clients who deserve the very best - the Luminance experience ultimately meets this criterion.”
Well, the event truly saw great brands come together for a fabulous evening out. Guests enjoyed Biquit Cognac cocktails and a conceptual , sumptuous spread courtesy of Maira Koutsoudakis from Life Grande Cafe, Bobbi Brown mini make-over’s were offered for to those wanting to “spruce up their image” and for those feeling the evening chill Cafe Mechanics set up a pop up coffee bar, serving delicious personalised lattes.
