Last Week Vimmia and I hosted a special private dinner event to celebrate the launch of our first capsule collection, CRK X VIMMIA Volume 1.
The aim for the night was to create an intimate evening with friends and fashion industry peers. Held at a private residence in Beverly Hills, in a beautiful candlelit space, the night began with a cocktail hour accompanied by a striking monochromatic display of the collection, which faded from neutral tones to black. Guests had the chance to view the outfits on model Amelia Grace Zerbe, who was featured in our campaign, as they were able to exclusively pre order the collection ahead of its online launch.
As Dinner was served, it opened with supportive speeches, including one from my husband, Steven Konsker, who shared that “to me this is family and this is what we call close and intimate, so this is called a close and intimate family”. Some of our dearest friends including Eva Longoria, Anastasia Soare, Fajer Fahad and Nicole Young arrived in styles from the collection and came to raise a glass to the exciting collaboration.
To round off the night, VIMMIA co-founder Alex said, “Big thank you Charlene for her incredible vision, relentless passion and her desire to make one of the best collections I have seen. Amazing to see how people gravitate towards it the same way people gravitate towards you. My brother and I were raised to believe in serendipity and Eula Smith, who we consider a sister and one of our closest friends…, when she told us about Charlene we had to take the meeting.”
