SOCIAL SPY** Deshabillé & Pink Hope Blogger Lunch

Yesterday Sydney Social 101 had the absolute pleasure of attending the Deshabillé Blogger Lunch at The Village, Gold Room in Potts Point.

Sydney Social 101 was in great company with 15 prominent bloggers from in and around Sydney. We were invited to the hot new Sydney bar, The Village in Potts Point to celebrate the collaboration between Deshabillé and Pink Hope.

We were joined by Deshabillé founder Roslyn Gleave and Pink Hope founder, Krystal Barter who talked to us about the collaboration and what we can do to help!

Deshabillé has joined forces with Pink Hope- Australia’s first community that provides accredited information and support for young women and their families who have a high risk of breast and/ or ovarian cancer. www.pinkhope.org.au

Even better, you can shop with a conscience as with Deshabillé’s Pink Hope range, 50% of all proceeds will go to the charity.

Throughout the lovely lunch event at The Village, Gold Room, we were treated to Pimms, sparkling wine and amazing canapés! They includes meat platters, calamari, arancini balls and pizza.

Pink Hope was founded by Krystal Barter who, sadly has been surrounded by breast cancer all of her life with four generations of her family suffering from it. Her family unfortunately carry the rogue gene BRCA1 which increases a carrier’s chances of developing breast cancer anywhere up to 85%. She always knew that she had a high risk of developing breast cancer but when she discovered that she carried the BRCA1 gene- the consequences really hit her. She decided to have a preventative mastectomy at only 25 – she has two children and decided that it was not worth the risk.

Pink Hope offers support and an expert team to help women through such situations.

As we departed we were treated with the most amazing goodie bags that contained a pair of the Pink Hope Deshabillé PJs, Clinique make-up, a lovely candle and a stunning bunch of flowers by Kavelle Flowers (below)!

The reason why I love Deshabillé so much is due to the quality and design of the collections!

Deshabillé, has the philosophy that everyone deserves to look and feel beautiful during their home time – that we should all be able to relax in comfort while also looking stylish; that we should be able to go to bed wearing pyjamas that not only feel beautiful against the skin but help us feel sexy as well; and that we should be able to wear warm and comfortable lounge clothes that also make us feel special. You know what, I blumin’ well agree!

So there are no more excuses for spending another minute at home in those saggy track pants and that ten-year-old hooded XXL size jumper. The Deshabillé beautiful sleepwear, loungewear, knitwear and beachwear has been designed to keep you looking gorgeous and feeling fabulous while you enjoy your down time.

Deshabillé was formed in 2006 by Roslyn Gleave and are based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. It is stocked in around 100 boutiques across Australia and internationally in New Zealand, Canada, USA, Japan, The Netherlands and Lebanon.

Deshabillé works closely with a talented artist to exclusively design many of our prints and are known for our sophisticated, fashion-forward prints & luxe fabrications.

Finally, Deshabillé releases two collections each year: The ‘Summer’ collection consists of sleepwear, beach dresses & beachwear. The ‘Winter’ collection consists of sleepwear, loungewear & knitwear.
