When it came to launching High Heel Jungle, it was a two-country, two-continent affair that began where it all began for our founder, Kathryn Eisman, in Sydney, Australia!
As for the location, it was contemporary fine dining establishment Hotel Centennial, Woollahra. The light filled room was turned into a secret garden filled with pastel blooms and rose covered bicycle created by legendary Australian floral designers Sticks and Wick.
Fifty of Australia’s top Fashion Editors, TV Personalities and VIPs were treated to a preview of Executive Chef Justin North’s scrumptious new Winter Brunch Menu, and sipped on Champagne Pommery Strawberry and Basil Mimosa’s throughout the morning. Guests were welcomes with a heart warming welcome from journalist Jo Casamento whom Kathryn met on her very first TV appearance for the talk show Beauty And The Beast (Jo may or may not have been wearing blue eye shadow at the time, whilst Kathryn was certainly wearing a bright yellow dress).
Media trailblazer Cherie Romaro then spoke about working with Kathryn when she was signed as the face of ARENA TV and their host and producer of Xclusive.
Kathryn then took to the stage to share her personal story of being a working Mother in media. Her belief that a woman needn’t sacrifice her style for substance or her family for career success and her hope that High Heel Jungle will support women in the daily, very real struggle to juggle it all.
Guests walked away with a few of Kathryn favorite things from Laduree, LuxIt, Champagne Pommery, Mon Purse and Aerin. Special thanks to Sally and the team at SBPR for making the magic happen.
