On 20th August I took a break from organising our new London shop opening to rub shoulders with and showcase a selection of Sapelle pieces to a group of inspiring women and role models at the inaugural Creme de la Femme luncheon.

The event is the sensational new luxury networking Luncheon created by Screen Nation Media for women of influence.

The event’s special honour went to Paulette Randall, whose prolific career has spanned from producing the popular 1980’s sitcom, ‘Desmond’s’ to being Associate Director of the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony.
