 You’d have to be a Scrooge not to like a Twinkle.

It is the season to be merry, so a fortnight ago, in between work commitments and a design bloggers-only event hosted by Linley later on that evening,
A-Gent of Style made his way to his ‘home from home’, the much cherished Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour for its annual Twinkle of Christmas, now in its fifth year, to celebrate the festive season in a jolly, glamourous and convivial atmosphere

Attended by a plethora of designers, taste makers, and representatives from the design centre’s 102 showrooms, Claire German, Managing Director of the DCCH, and her team invited their guests to the capital’s legendary creative and commercial hub of interior design to enjoy festive fizz, hot chocolate, doughnuts, star treats and marshmallows from a snow wall amongst ethereal stilt-walkers whilst smooth harmonies from the Rat Pack provided seasonal good cheer beneath a constellation of twinkling lights.

Despite its magical scintillation and sparkle, the glamorous event wouldn’t have been truly starry without the much-anticipated attendance of its surprise celebrity. This year’s guest of honour (and best well-kept secret) was Darcey Bussell, principal dancer, judge of BCC’s Strictly Come Dancing and now national darling, who, ahem, swanned in the middle dome to be welcomed onto the stage by students from her old school, Royal Ballet School. With the support of a huge crowd, La Bussell switched on the lights and the spectacular glass domes the design centre were illuminated by a galaxy of glowing stars, a sight to behold.

‘It’s such an inspirational place to come to,’ said Darcey. ‘I have always been a big fan of the creative world, and I’m very happy to add to this festive occasion’.

With all of these perfect ingredients thrown into the mix, The Twinkle of Christmas has now become without a doubt an unmissable annual tradition and a firm fixture in London’s design calendar.

  Twinkle, twinkle…
