Vienna Intro and What to Wear When You’re There

Intro and What to Wear When You’re There

Where? Vienna, Austria
Exactly? Grand Hotel Wien
Why? On a press trip with jewellery brand Thomas Sabo to see the launch of the new collections.
When? Winter 2011

Treats at the Thomas Sabo party
Best time to go? I’ve been to Vienna in the summer when it’s reached 28 degrees celsius, but my favourite time of year to visit is in December for the Christmas markets. Vienna in the snow is picturesque and incredibly romantic.
Travel companions? I travelled with a group of 15 UK fashion editors and PR’s. But Vienna is the perfect city for romantic weekends away, cultured short breaks with friends or why not take your mum? She’ll love it.
Top tip? No trip to Vienna is complete without a night at the opera. Its quite easy to buy tickets on the day, but if you’re an opera aficionado make sure you book well in advance so you get the seats you want.

Held in the magnificent Schoenburg Palace, the Thomas Sabo annual launch party was a stunning event. We spent most of the evening in the gardens, watching bands, sat on lip shaped chairs, sipping pink champagne and eating ice cream.

Vienna – Street Style
What to wear when you’re there
The general style in Vienna is grown up, sophisticated and polished. Keep it classic and smart casual for the day. For the evening think slick LBD’s and cocktail dresses for the ladies and suits for the boys, especially if you’re going to the opera which has quite a strict dress code. The Thomas Sabo event was rather a grand affair, so I decided to take a few shots of the discerning crowd.
