The picture perfect Parisian eatery Aubaine in Selfridges was taken over for a children’s tea
party hosted by Jasmine Guinness and Rachel Stevens.
The stylish mummies launched their very own limited-edition children’s footwear collection by
Step2wo, which they had designed along with Charlotte Church, for the British Heart
Foundation’s Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.
The room was bursting with stylish parents and their adorable tots including: Angela Griffin,
Daisy Bates, Elen Rivas, Harriet Scott, Jade Parfitt, Martin Offiah, Sinitta and Tina Hobley.
Children were kept entertained by balloon modeller David Crofts who also created a 1.5m
model of one of the boots as well as face painting and an activity area hosted by Anorak
Whilst the children were kept busy parents could browse the stylish new designs (many a
mother could be heard saying “Does this come in my size?”) and enjoyed canapés and treats
by Aubaine which included mini ‘lollipop’ chicken wings and Aubaine burgers, mini
macaroons and passion fruit tarts.
Guests didn’t leave empty handed. In addition to multiple shoes purchases (Tina Hobley was
seen leaving the party armed with three pairs of shoes from the Heart & Sole collection!),
goodie bags included treats from Air Puppy, Little Fashion Gallery and aden + anais.
Richard Hytner, chairman of the British Heart Foundation’s Mending Broken Hearts
Appeal, gave a brief speech thanking the three celebrity mummies for their time and
The Heart & Sole collection is available exclusively at Selfridges from 4 July for a
period of two weeks, before it goes on sale nationwide through all our Step2wo concessions and here online.
