The BUTTERFLY Party
A few weeks ago Johan Crianza and Just Cavalli Club, Milano threw the most fantastic Dinner and party at ONDA restaurant in Oslo, Norway this past weekend.
The theme of the party was the BUTTERFLY and the masks given to all of the guests as they walked into the magnificent room for the event was personally designed by Roberto Cavalli himself.
I was flown in from London as the Event Hostess of the evening which was such an honour.
Onda is an architectural landmark at Aker Brygge, located next to the sea of the Oslo fjord.Dress your face!

I put my hair in a pony tail as I knew that I'd be working all night and did't need any unnecessary distractions. :))
The BIG boys came out to play, MASERATI was one of the sponsors of the evening.
It was an amazing event and it was such a great feeling to be back in my adopted home to see friends and family again.
There's absolutely nothing better than doing what you love, truly.
And when the job is so close to your heart, it's an added bonus.WHAT I WORE..
Earrings - H&M
Faux fur - Zara
Watch - Hermes
(I normally would have kept my arms clean of any jewellery/watches with a dress like this, but I was hosting the event and timing is everything.
I'm looking for a beautiful pocket watch in place of this.
As It looks like I'm going to be super busy, which is a good thing yes!)
Dress - Stella McCartney
Bag - Chanel
High heels - Jimmy Choo
The entertainment 4 the evening...
Special guests where flown in from all over the world who mingled with International celebrities.
The red carpet was a fashion show of the latest collections from SS2015, Joan Rivers would have loved to be there.
I never get nervous when I work, It's always exciting and I always feel the night goes too fast.
There's nothing better than to have a celebrity who humble, entertaing, charming and funny .....Amaury is all of those things and more.
He was very honoured to be a special guest and this is what he told me during his interview.
"It's a pleasure to be here and getting time to spend with the people from Norway and especially you Fumi, I'm humbled for the love of the Norwegian people towards me"

As the evening turned into night time the dance floor was jam packed with guests and celebrities alike gyrating on the dance floor thanks to the amazing DJ Alex Merrell who is truly about the music, making her one of the most sought after DJs for high profile events and top venues internationally.
Doing what she does best with those KILLER looks.

THE MAN OF THE EVENING..
Johan Crianza with his beautiful fiancé Benedicte Nilsen to the left.
Johan giving his beautiful speech.
Johan Cranza is by far one of the most charismatic men I know.
He's BORN for entertaining and is such a good and generous heart.
He forgets nobody's name and always has time for everyone.
He fills a room with so much joy and laughter it's hard not to surround yourself with his magic in hopes that some of the STAR QUALITY will fall off on you.
I think it's that fantastic Dominican Republican heart that he has.
A business man and the Owner/Director of Crianza WinePort Johan travels all over the world in search of the very best wine.
THANK YOU again Johan for a sensational evening my friend.
Her daughter is my light and our husbands are friends.
It was so GREAT to see her again and I MISS her every day.
The milk in my Coffee.
It's always great when we travel together.
This was supper special, b'cos I want Ole to be really proud of me and see what I a good job I did with his people.
It means absolutely everything to me b'cos Ole is Norwegian.
It's one of the reasons I learnt his language.
It's sounds super different she laughs b'cos I speak it with and Africa/American accent, laughing again.
But it's good enough to speak to the crown and they totally understand me. :))

EVENT CORDINATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE
Pablo with actor Amaury Nolasco
Behind any great/successful event is a fantastic even planner and the award goes to Pablo Kheiry who is the CEO of Nordic Breeze, Scandinavia.
He tirelessly stitched this event together over the course of 3 months working night and day as he over saw this great event coming together.
To plan any event is challenging in itself not to talk of handling talent from all over the world and speaking at the very least, THREE different languages so that everybody understands!
Thank you Pablo, it was a great event.
Ladies and gentlemen if your looking to have a wonderful event, look no further than NORDIC BREEZE to turn it into a magical evening.
