In Lucia’s work as a red carpet and wedding dress designer in London, Brides tell her all the time that they can’t find anywhere original or distinctive to celebrate their hen with their best girlfriends. Especially if they don’t want it to involve stretch white limos, pink bunny ears and sweaty nightclubs.
Well that’s no longer true! “Sex and the City” inspired and reminded us of the fun and importance of precious girlfriend time and Lucia wanted to create something really special at Dar to allow for just this. The perfect, exotic, beautiful place to explore and adventure, shop until you drop and relax with your best gals.

All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.
