A Doozy of a Dinner Party

A very seriously unserious party

Curious and chaotic. Dramatic and debaucherous. This doozy of a dinner party was not made for the faint-hearted or formal.


From the constructs of The Style Co.’s wildest, most decadent dreams came a night where the dress code was OTT and nothing was off limits. No mood boards, sketches or hours trawling Pinterest – this was not that kind of party. This was both everything we are and everything we are not. It was energetic and unscripted, lavish and unruly. It was a daring creation of our own visuals. And rumour has it some of us are still trying to shake the next day’s headache.


Statement florals in feature vessels, gold candle holders and crystal glassware made our tablescape dreams come true. We ate, drank and danced as we styled – celebrating and indulging in all things glamorous. Why? Why not. Oysters, lobster and caviar washed down champagne and disco tunes. And for dessert – pavlova and chocolate cake with a side of confetti. No inhibitions and no cutlery allowed.


You didn’t think we’d throw a killer party without a killer cocktail, did you? Enter the Four Pillars mixologist, shaking and serving round after round of the ‘Who Shot Tom Collins?’ – a sweet and spicy fusion of gin, shiraz, citrus and soda.  


Diana Ross got louder and shoes became optional. Nicole’s fabulous pins danced on polaroid-laced tabletops, creating an iconic shot that now features in our studio. Because a party that spectacular deserves a permanent spot on our walls. Every single big, bold design decision was perfectly captured by the oh-so-cool Dan Castano.


Scroll the snaps.
Enjoy the chaos.
