The venue: Liberty of London. The guest list: VIP. The signature drink: Cointreau fizz – what else!
Always keen to encourage aspiring entrepreneurs, Seraphine founder Cecile Reinaud joined a glamorous crowd this week at the Cointreau Awards for creativity and innovation.
Cecile spent time chatting with British super model and winner of the ‘true icon award’ Lily Cole, who loved Seraphine maternity clothes while she was expecting her daughter Wylde, and revealed to Cecile that she now can’t get enough of our nursing clothes.
The judging panel offered a seriously stylish line-up. Breath-taking French super model Laeticia Casta, who has been the face of innumerable fashion houses – Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Jean-Paul Gaultier to name but a few, took her seat on the panel. While the inspirational Guila-Clara Kessous, a French human rights artist and UNESCO artist for peace, looked stunning in our Emerald Silk Maternity Evening Dress.
Much like Seraphine, The Cointreau Awards fused French chic and British innovation, taking the best bits from both sides of the channel and wrapping them up in one glamorous package. The awards celebrate entrepreneurial individuals who dream big and dare to create, and everything about the fabulous event reflected these ideals.
