Emma Lewisham’s event was a love letter to Australia that included a performance by Florence + The Machine

Emma Lewisham doesn't do things in halves when it comes to skincare and, as it turns out, the New Zealand skincare label doubles down on that same ethos when it comes to throwing a killer cocktail party. Having launched her brand into the neighbouring Australian market a little over three years ago (during the height of the pandemic I might add), she felt it was about time to celebrate how far she's come, and the milestones the brand has reached on our sandy shores.

The intimate evening, with the eponymous Emma Lewisham herself in attendance, was held at the National Art School in Darlinghurst last Wednesday, where brick and mortar were lit up in the brand's signature royal purple - and trademark pink flower - for the occasion.

A considered list of the brand's nearest and dearest Australian friends and family donned their best cocktail attire and congregated under the stars for a very special performance from none other than Florence Welch, who treated the room to a stripped-back, acoustic Florence + The Machine set. Backing up the evening's soundtrack was a special DJ set from Rachel Rutt and Ryan Grieve of HEART PEOPLE, who had guests in attendance swaying into the evening, glasses of sparkling - and cocktails adorned with marigolds - in hand.

Emma Lewisham has garnered a cult following in Australia due to their pioneering vision of beauty - one that not only ensures results-driven formulation, but that also places focus on sustainable practice, and creative a positive impact for both people and planet. The brand is proudly a member of the global B Corp community.
