PHOENIX x AURA Photo Agency UK Launch and 25th anniversary
Saturday 15th February 2020
As Storm Dennis raged outside, inside the decadent surroundings of Kadie’s Club on Swallow Street in Mayfair we supplied the great and the good of London Fashion Week with an excuse to celebrate. Leading Italian agency AURA, established in Milan 25 years ago, represents some of the world’s most in demand photographers. Large scale prints were exhibited on the walls of the venue, showcasing a variety of work from the intensely creative styles of Pietro Cocco to the classic beauty imagery of artists such as Jean-Philipe Malaval, and from epic sporting images by Olaf Pignataro, to still life surrealism by Massimmo Gammacurta. The agency has an impressive client roster, working with top Italian brands such as Prada, Valentino, Lamborghini, Maxmara, Versace Jeans Couture among many others, and is now open for business in London.
Iconic Russian vodka house Stolichnaya (known to its friends as Stoli) kept us in good spirits, with an elegant Prosecco rosé supplied by fellow Italians Bosco del Merlo. To keep the crowd moving DJ Martim Rola played a vibey deep house set, followed by “Purveyor of Sound” DJ Nabil Bouhsina.
As ever a big thank you to the whole bar and operations team at Kadies for a brilliant club experience.
