Creme de la Femme 2014 by Screen Nation
50 of the Best and Brightest Black British women came together in July for the 'Creme de la Feme' networking event. Paulette Randall, Donna Croll, Sherry Ann Dixon, Denise Lewis, Jenny Garrett, Neoni Bennett, Tina Lobondi, Eliza Anyangwe, Claudia Webbe and so many more. I was so pleased to have been a part of the very first one!
So what is Creme de la Femme?
Crème de la Femme is a totally unique annual gathering of many of the highest achieving women in the UK. Bringing together leading ladies from politics and finance alongside entrepreneurs, Oscar nominees, world champions and many others, Crème de la Femme is designed to be the premier regular social gathering of women of colour in Europe, all designed to raise funds for women focussed charities around the world.
With entry gained purely by invitation only, Crème de la Femme was designed to become ‘the’ most sought after event for ladies to do ‘Lunch’. Hosted each time by a well loved media personality, the 4 star luncheons take place no more than 3 times a year and are hosted exclusively at select Michelin star restaurants and top west end London hotels.
High Profile, High Flying, High Achieving but never High Faluting!
