Guests arrived to a beautifully presented and very girly afternoon tea to celebrate the launch of milliner and designer Natalie Chan's new Parnell Rd store on Wednesday afternoon.
Among the guests were members of the Parnell and Newmarket business associations, including the ever elegant Di Goldsworthy, as well as The Langham's recently married Lucy Clark and Auckland Racing Club's Rachel Holland, recently returned from a United Kingdomsabbatical.
Chan's move to a new premises provides a chance for more space to showcase her wedding dresses, special occasion wear and headpieces for race days.
As always, Chan was a charming hostess, putting on a gorgeous spread of pink and white treats including lolly bowls, cupcakes and macaroons accompanied by herbal tea and champagne.
It's been a busy time for Chan, with the new premises not the only thing she's been working on. ''I'm four months pregnant too,'' she said.
