Unveiling Henne Fiveways

To introduce our first Sydney boutique Henne Fiveways, founders Nadia Bartel, Laura Broque and Michelle Ring hosted friends of the brand for an evening of celebration. 

In the heart of Paddington, strong ensembles from the upcoming collection 'New Realms' graced the guests with a striking colour palette of burgundy, red, steel and shell. 

To mark the unveiling, the entire exterior of the Paddington boutique was draped in undulating chiffon, creating a theatrical backdrop for the exclusive cocktail party.

Once inside, guests enjoyed Belvedere martinis, along with a glimmering champagne tower from Moët & Chandon.

The menu to accompany the night was created by Chef and Food Stylist Sian Redgrave, reflecting Henne's Italian heritage. 

Focaccia was served with a sculpted tower of French Salted Butter. Canapés displayed en masse included grissini, endive, Dutch carrots, radishes, whipped taramasalata, mortadella and radicchio. 

Grand wedges of Comté with fresh honeycomb and Swiss Cheese with muscatels were accompanied by a row of Roman Maritozzi pastries, filled with whipped Ricotta and chives.

To complete the menu, a spectacular rhubarb, raspberry and vanilla cake was served with Chantilly cream. 

A jazz band, led by Sydney's Edo Santoni played 1950's Italian jazz classics provided the soundtrack to the evening.
