LONDON, Oct 19, 2012/ — Last Wednesday, Oct 17, 2012, Mulberry hosted an exclusive party to launch the highly anticipated “Tim Walker: Story Teller” exhibition at London’s Somerset House.
A renowned fashion photographer, Tim Walker is known for the vivacity and humor (which is one of his signatures) of his photographs. His work has been published in the American, British, French and Italian editions of Vogue, in Vanity Fair, W and in The New Yorker, among others.
So, Wednesday night it was not surprising that some of the world’s most recognizable faces in the fashion and entertainment industries attended the opening gala party hosted by Mulberry’s Creative Director Emma Hill and Tim Walker alongside Somerset House Trust Director Gwyn Miles.
Guests including Kate Moss, Jamie Hince, Helena Bonham-Carter, Tim Burton, Laura Carmichael, Bonnie Wright, Cara Delevingne, Atlanta de Cadenet, Tallulah and Amanda Harlech, Kristen McMenamy, Jade Williams, Tamzin Merchant, Olympia Campbell, Claudia Mason, Sasha Volkova, Portia Freeman and Erdem Moralioglu had the opportunity to browse the exhibition, which features images and props of some of Tim’s most iconic photographs starring Lily Cole, Lindsey Wixson, Stella Tennant and Karlie Kloss, who stars with Humpty Dumpty on the front of the accompanying Story Teller book.
British family-run Chase Vodka made Chase Elder & Apple Berrytini and Chase Marmalade Mule cocktails and guests were served Dorset crab on granary toast, beef fillet with crisp parmesan and truffle and honey-infused goat’s cheese on focaccia. A pop-up oyster bar was provided by J Sheekey.
A Lydian string quartet played at the start of the evening, followed by a DJ set by British band Friendly Fires.
