Wild London Fashion Party Thrown by Jewish Designer Stella McCartney (VIDEO)
This is not the first time that a McCartney shook up the world with innovation.
Jewish designer Stella McCartney ( daughter of Paul McCartney) excited the fashion world last Saturday night by surprising her guests at a formal dinner for a presentation of her evening wear collection at London Fashion Week .
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.
