Fashion assistants get a Christmas treat

From Temperley London

Not that we're ones to complain, but the life of a fashion assistant can be long on hours and short on glamour, so it was a thrill to receive aninvitation to the Temperley London 'We Love Fashion Assistants' event.

The guest list was assistants only, with no one senior allowed. 'We wanted to treat fashion assistants to something special,' said Petrina Nystrom, Temperley London's PR manager once we arrived.

And that they did: the party took place on the second floor of the recently opened Temperley flagship store on London's BrutonStreet. In keeping with the Christmas mood we had minced pies and a floor-to-ceiling vintage metal palm tree lamp decorated as a Christmas tree.

At ELLE we always want to encourage those starting out on their careers ­which is why we started our Edited By The Interns initiative earlier this year ­so here's hoping the Temperley event was the first of many of its kind.
