Mr Collins and his trendy clad team were excited to be working alongside those dapper dudes at Amuk clothing last month with the Jeep Portsea Polo 2015. The weatherman was kind, with the rain holding off for the anticipated day and by all accounts, it was a cracker day!
This was Tommy Collins 3rd year in a row collaborating with the retail group and we were very excited to create another show-stopping event for all involved. The dusty grass landscape nestled within the popular coastal town was transformed within a few short days – with a huge polo field in the centre, surrounded by numerous marquees. Mr Collins & Amuk took over a colossal 6 marquee structure (provided and set up by the hard working team over at ‘Harry The Hirer’), close to the centre of the field.
The chosen theme for this year was ‘A New York Minute’, celebrating all things from the ‘Big Apple’, from food & cocktails to the clothing chosen for Mr & Mrs Collins. The vibrant marquee was decked out with funky furniture including oversized Chesterfield armchairs (delivered by our friends at Slide Productions) which certainly had the ‘wow’ factor!
And no event would be complete without some chic designs & styling – this task was taken care of by the creative gals over at The Style.Co, who used huge floral ceiling installations and props to tie in with the uber-cool NYC theme.
As the guests arrived, they were treated to an array of canapés, delicious cocktails and a refreshing King Valley Rosato (D.O.C Wines) which we had installed through a tap on the main bar. With Mr Collins and his stylish team of gurus offering up a bountiful menu of ‘dapper dude food’ including NYC themed burgers & fried chicken, throughout the day, it’s safe to say that no one was going hungry!
With a pop up Oyster Bar, Cocktail Station, renowned Melbourne DJ’s Khanh Ong & Matt Caminiti spinning the decks, and a plethora of giant inflatable swans & flamingos for you to rest upon, the Amuk Portsea Polo marquee, was most definitely the place to be seen!
