Concours d’Elegance has quickly established itself as one of the highlights in the social calendar, and it is fast approaching. Translated literally from French the title refers to the gathering of prestigious cars. Inspired by the French aristocracy of the 18th century, the event celebrates everything that epitomises prestige design and style. Concours d’Elegance sets out to create the ultimate shopping experience, celebrating the exclusive line-up of luxury brands amongst other like-minded connoisseurs.
Guests at the salon are invited to sip champagne and dine in style, whilst viewing the zenith of design in timepieces, cars, yachts, interior design, jewellery, property and aviation. The intimate style of the gathering makes room for plenty of socialising and time to find out about the history behind the exquisite goods. Guests also have the inimitable opportunity to attend lectures from some of the world’s leading style authorities.
Concours d’Elegance is hosted in the spectacular grounds of The Hurlingham Club, close to the River Thames. As an exclusive garden party, it provides the ultimate hospitality opportunity for business clients and friends alike. The gardens founded in 1869, stretch an impressive 42-acre estate of lavish gardens, lawns and sporting facilities, the ideal setting for this unique event.
