MUSES in Mayfair

Event 14-03-2017

Muses, an exclusive event to mark International Women’s Day 2017 brought together a group of women at the forefront of their various industries and fields.

Around 60 women were invited to the exclusive event, jointly hosted by Asian Wealth Magazine, Oxfam, Minerva Female Focus, Perrier-Jouet and Lalique. The guests came from diverse backgrounds including banking, philanthropy, law, business, fashion, activism, media and construction.

Held at Lalique’s flagship store in the heart of Mayfair, guests had the opportunity to view their new collection, Muses, based on the female form which pays tribute to the ‘Woman’. Perrier-Jouet Rose champagne flowed generously, as well as a selection of non-alcoholic spritzers, along with beautiful canapés.

For guest of honour, Pinky Lilani OBE, Muses was the third International Women’s Day event of the day – having previously attended Buckingham Palace and Downing Street. She joked that the canapés at Muses were the best of the day.

It is the first time Asian Wealth Magazine has hosted a female focused event. Kalpesh Patel, Founder and Publisher of Asian Wealth Magazine said: “As a person who was raised by a single mother, I understand and appreciate the importance of having the support of a strong independent woman. Muses was an inspiring evening for me in many ways. I was surrounded by equally independent women, leading at the forefront of their industries, and we have much to learn, share and celebrate.”

Vaishali Shah of Minerva Female Focus said “It was a lovely event celebrating International Women’s Day, networking with like-minded, inspiring women in a beautiful setting. There was a good mix of female entrepreneurs and professional intermediaries. It was particularly meaningful for us, as Minerva’s exclusive women’s business network, Female Focus, was launched exactly four years ago on International Women’s Day.”

Kalyani Gandhi-Rhodes of Oxfam explained “An inspiring evening in the beautiful space at Lalique. It was a pleasure to meet women from diverse professional walks of life, connect and become further strengthened and motivated to make women’s voices heard and women’s equality respected.”

Frederick Fischer, Managing Director of Lalique explained “It was a pleasure to celebrate International Women’s day at Lalique Conduit Street with Asian Wealth Magazine and partners. The very feminine Muses collection inspired AWM to host the event with us and invite guests, most of them being inspirational Asian business women. It was a pleasure to enjoy the evening in the company of great people while showcasing the Lalique collections, especially for the gold lustre pieces which gained great interest.”

Alexander Staartjes of Pernod Ricard said “It was a pleasure to be a partner in the Muses Event, organized by Asian Wealth Magazine and other illustrious partners such as Oxfam, the Minerva Trust and Lalique. As always, an expertly curated guest list combined with flawless execution on the evening, offered the perfect setting for our Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé champagne.”
