Last night Fashion PR Mandi Lennard flung open the doors of her Redchurch Street office for a fabulous festive disco! With co-host, giantess and star of HBO’s Games of Thrones, Gwendoline Christie, at her side (pretty in pink Roksanda Ilincic of course), Mandi welcomed fashion’s elite into her workplace-cum-merry-grotto. The miniature golden arches, her Bruce Lee bust, desks, chairs and bunches of Barbies were swept aside for an evening of revelry and disco dancing. i-D staffers Princess Julia and Hanna Hanra spun the night away in the DJ booth, offering a musical mash-up of festive hits and TV theme tunes. Bistrotheque’s Tom Collins whipped up fresh tacos for guests seeking a spot of dancefloor respite and David Waddington served steaming cider beside the snow-topped Christmas tree (Argos Product Code 269/8692). Merry Christmas one and all!
