Happy Birthday Princess Diana

Today marks the 56th birthday of the iconic figure Princess Diana. Apart from being the People’s Princess, she was a fashion icon, and an active humanitarian and philanthropist. Princess Diana was the first royal to have contact with AIDS victims; Diana’s willingness to embrace those suffering from the disease helped dispel early misconceptions about AIDS. Her charity work with children was inspirational and has left a mark across the world, helping to make a difference.
It is wonderful to see William and Harry continuing her legacy to keep her memory alive. Happy Birthday to the People’s Princess.

Ronit Zilkha was fortunate enough as a young British fashion designer to dress the Princess over the years, and here are some of our favourites.

What we have been up to at Lullilu

Our founder, Ronit Zilkha, got together with Stella McCartney and Poppy Delevigne to raise money for West London Action for Children, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Medecins Sans Frontiers.

Together they watched a student fashion show and selected the winning outfit.

Everyone was impressed by the organisation from the girls who worked hard and made this a fantastic event, raising £2000 for some exceptional causes.

Here are a couple of photos to share with you ..

What we have been up to!

It is hard to remember the wonderful things London has got to offer with the weather being so wet and dull, but we needed a bit of colour, inspiration and just things that can put a smile on our face.

How lucky are we to be able to spend 15 minutes on the tube and get to the wonderful world of Tate Modern!

These below should say it all…

We found Kandinsky on level  4
