Watch: Discover All Things Destination Party
Seven of the world’s top tastemakers, Adam Gallagher (I Am Galla), Patricia Otegwu (Patricia Bright), Zanita Whittington (Zanita.com), Melissa Koh (MelissaCKoh.com), Vanessa Hong (The Haute Pursuit), Meric Kucuk (Maritsa.co) and Fashion Director Anya Ziourova, come together in the ultimate global gathering, Destination Party, hosted in Istanbul, exclusively with Harrods.
Celebrating party style around the world, from US to Australia, the Middle East to Singapore and more, each tastemaker showcases their individual take on the festive season, styling up their bespoke edits and then coming together in a series of lavish, experiential shoots on location.
"The opportunity to work with Harrods and to have been in Istanbul has been great. Bringing together influencers from around the world with their diverse styles and blogs is a great representation of Harrods and the different styles it offers,” - Adam Gallagher, IAmGalla.com
For night, from the LBD to the cocktail dress, the evening gown to men’s partywear, from Saint Laurent to Jenny Packham, Balmain to Victoria Beckham, each tastemaker works their own take on the glamorous side of the season, shot exclusively on location at a party in Soho House Istanbul. While for day, they styled their own individual shoots, capturing their quintessential aesthetic, shot on the stunning grounds of the Four Seasons at the Bosphorus.
“When you feel confident and beautiful in what you're wearing, you feel ready to party." - Zanita Whittington, Zanita.com
And not just all about the fashion, beauty also took a starring role in creating each of the tastemaker’s individual looks, provided by TOM FORD beauty.
“I like to do everything when it comes to make-up. I love the contouring, highlighting, strobing. It’s about playing with make-up, it’s so fun.” Patricia Otegwu, Patricia Bright.
Captured on film, in stills, through interviews, need-to-know beauty tips and tricks, behind-the-scenes access and, of course, the shopping edits created exclusively for the Harrods customer, start the season in stylish company by discovering all things Destination Party.
