The Virtue Launch Party

Wow!

The hangover has now resided and we have taken a few deep breaths to soak in all of the amazing feed back we have had since our opening night week.

It's pretty humbling to be surrounded and encouraged by all the amazing people in our lives. There are so many people who helped us to pull this thing together, so thank you so very much we appreciate you all. I wish we had something really funny to add here like when Paul Henry won the peoples choice award, alas it's late and we have nothing, nothing but a shit load of gratitude.

Shout out to - Sofie Park from www.petalandprickle.co.nz Sofie went above and beyond to create the Cuban vibe we were after, she put her life on the line dangling her flora from our rafters her understanding of our vision was next level.  All of the foliage in our space is created by her and we are so lucky to work with women like her.

The above invites were designed by Jaron Mumby from www.littlerocket.co.nz

This guy knows a thing or two about good design, his attention to detail and seamless production had us speechless. We could learn a thing or two from this man, he listened and interpreted our ideas and created these classy numbers. Cheers Jaron love your work.

Thank you to Tammie from Tammie Pitwood Phototgrapahy for taking these amazing photos for us.    

 Not a chance in hell we would have been able to do this, she did a stella job with a mojito in hand which we loved.  I could get used to this someone else taking photos for us gig!

Be Like Narelle.

 When these glorious women glided through our doors at 5.55pm Thursday with arms overflowing with gowns that did in fact take our breath away.  No words.  These have to be seen to be experienced.

We had the lovely Victoria From Vs events.  Kindly Supply us with our killer Mojito dispensers which were a hit everyone loves a cocktail.

We have seen Victoria in action working her organisational creative magic at proper events like weddings and she sure is someone we'd like to have on our team.  

Ya'll saw those juicy palms round the traps, They were hired from the crew at Mangrewa Palms lovingly arranged by our woman and design compadre Annika Rowson.  It's not even a shame we were to ill to return them and were forced to buy them......purchase of the year.

And with that we are out!

Watch this space for our upcoming collaborations.
