Q: What are three things you need for a successful dinner party?
A: A carefully curated and eclectic invitee list, the art of a well-constructed invitation: timing, wording, RSVP etc, and a thoughtful seating plan; this takes a lot of time but it ensures that everyone has a fabulous evening. A topic to connect everyone.
Q: Go-to shoe to hostess shoe?
A: The Kara shoe! It’s elegant and sexy and great for day-to-night
Q: Fail safe menu item?
A: I go back to my roots and make Greek food. My Grandmother’s Spanakopita never disappoints!
Q: Best theme party you have ever hosted?
A: I’m passionate about empowering women, in and out of the workplace, and recently hosted an evening with Glamsquad for their ItStartsWithYou campaign. Self-care is so important and I love Glamsquad. The room that evening was full of inspiring women and it was incredible to hear their stories. The event was also in aid of Dress for Success, an international not-for-profit organization that enables women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Q: What is a full-proof outfit to wear when going to a dinner party?
A: I have several pieces from Tibi and Victoria Beckham which really work from office to dinner which I team with killer (Sarah Flint) shoes and statement jewelry.
