Chisholm Hunter X Zenith

21 November 2018

Well lads! I've officially attended my third ever blogger event in Scotland after my whole 3 years of living here. The first event I attended was when I was in in second year, the second was one week ago at the Walford Astoria at their Guerlain Spa where I met the lovely Decidedly Eve and the third was tonights event at Chisholm Hunter on Princes Street. In-between the spa event and tonights Chisholm Hunter event happened to be a random turn of events wherein the shop I work in (ALC on Thistle Street) had a visit from the wonderful Caoilfhionn from WearWhatWorks and Erika Saccone as part of a uncover Edinburgh campaign. Caolan is originally from Derry so naturally we hit it off and had a fab afternoon with Erika and fellow ALC gal Cat, I photographed the girls trying on some of ALC's gorgeous pieces and got some great content for the ALC instagram

I was invited to this evenings Chisholm Hunter X Zenith event by the lovely Olivia who works on the PR team for The Big Partnership and originally I had asked my best gal Adele to join me because for some reason I've always been nervous going to events in Scotland. If you've met me before this will definitely seem surprisingly but let me explain myself,  back home in Belfast I knew everyone in the our mini fashion world, I knew who was running the events, who was modelling, who the photographers were and who the PR team behind it was. When I moved to Edinburgh and started getting invited to events over here something always held me back because going from knowing everyone to knowing absolutely nobody gave me the fear.  Anyway, I had just finished work when Adele texted me to say she was exhausted after shooting a campaign in Glasgow all day so I decided to put my big girl boots on and drop into the event all by my lonesome. I assumed I'd do a lap of the room, have a quick drink and get some nice shots before jumping on the bus home, but this was not the case. 

The gorgeous Olivia greeted me at the door and I was instantly put at ease by how warm she was, the glass of prosecco she handed me no doubt helped with my nerves and we headed upstairs, low and behold there was Caoilfhionn!

I spent the rest of the evening catching up with Caoilfhionn, meeting other bloggers like Hannah Robinson and Karolina Korthals while drinking glasses (and glasses) of prosecco & blood orange caviar! We were even treated to a speech by CEO of Zenith Julien Tornare who spoke with some serious passion about the company and the history behind it. The watches are absolutely stunning as you'd expect and we were promised by Tornare himself that there are even more amazing things to come for the Zenith brand next year.
