Gibson Hall was built in 1865 and named after its architect, John Gibson. It’s a beautiful Victorian building and the entire interior has been restored. It’s considered one of the greatest of the City’s banking halls and this was the first time it was used for a fashion event which made the evening just that much more special.
It’s great to have something special just for men. For women there are often manicures, make-up artists, even tea cup readers – but men seem to get a bit neglected at PR events. Not at this one! How many men have the chance to have a wet shave from a professional barber and general facial pampering? The Smirnoff Black and Hugo Boss Boutique Barbers offered a shave during the evening using premier skin care products from Hugo Boss as part of this traditional shave.
I can just envision city boys wearing Hugo Boss suits enjoying a shave!
The interior is elegant, stylish & sophisticated and has imposing Corinthian marble columns with beautiful crystal chandeliers. I just couldn’t help but feel a bit giddy – maybe it was the yummy Smirnoff Black Collins cocktail, prepared by a professional clean shaven (handsome) Smirnoff bartender!
I really enjoy going to events like this; you get see places that you would never normally go to and you just feel lucky!
