This is not the first time that a McCartney shook  up the world with innovation.

Instead of a traditional catwalk show, McCartney invited 100 or so of her closest friends and some of the most important figures in the fashion industry, for dinner: including; Juergen Teller, Kate Moss,  Stella Tennant,  Anna Wintour, Mario Testino, Simon Le Bon, Alison Mosshart,  Rihanna, Twiggy, Chantal Joffe, Alexandra Shulman, Tim Walker, Barry Reigate, Paul Whitehouse, Nick Grimshaw, Dionne Broomfield, Anya Rubik, and many more.

The guests arrived in gala dress code as round tables were arranged with white linen and decorated silver bowl.  The models were dressed in McCartney’s marble-printed silk evening wear as they took their places among the guests.  Musical entertainment was provided by the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra playing a selection of British and American jazz standards.

Unexpectedly, an abrupt performance kicked off amidst the dinner. Models rushed into a surprise performance choreographed by Blanca Li to the tempo of a Led Zeppelin classic. They danced on tables, were passed around on chairs, as if it was a traditional Jewish wedding, and twirled to the wild music.
