Pomp and color characterized the event
The exclusive party, whose theme was Sex and the City as an ode to the throwback hit television series, was attended by female politicians, businesswomen, celebrities and media personalities, who were treated to a champagne breakfast.
“This is the third year running when we have held the Champagne Breakfast. It is our most exclusive event bringing together readers and movers and shakers to interact and learn something new. The morning is meant to be relaxed and fun with opportunity for networking. This year, we wanted to delve into the topic of relationships using a fresh and modern approach that women can relate to, hence the theme Sex and The City,” said Nailantei Kenga, True Love Magazine’s Head of Marketing.
The highlights of the event sponsored by The Lord Erroll, Barclays Bank, Makari and Oriflame were the talks by Sally Mahihu and Mary Waceke Muia. Sally Mahihu, a lawyer and founder of the Seasoned Woman spoke on the topic 'Marriage: Built To Last'. Life Coach Mary Waceke Muia spoke on the topic, 'Why You Keep Attracting The Same Type of Man and How to Break The Cycle'. In addition, guests were also treated to a fashion show by designer extraordinaire, Aulgah Nato of Nato Designs.
“We were happy to partner with the award-winning Lord Erroll restaurant that is well known for its gourmet cuisine to celebrate the dynamic and fabulous women who read and have featured in our magazine. The Restaurant resonates well with the True Love brand as both celebrate aspiration and luxury in East Africa,” said Carole Mandi, CEO of Carole Mandi Media Ltd.
