A glamorous evening at the DDW pre-Bafta party hosted by Antoin Commane
On Thursday evening, London’s best and brightest names in film, fashion and society gathered at celebrity chef Maria Ortiz’s London flagship, Ella Canta, for the first annual Don’t Die Wondering Pre-BAFTA party.
Hosted by Don’t Die Wondering’s dapper founder Antoin Commane, the event marked the first of a series of bespoke events for the private society’s tastemakers across the capital. DDW, as it is affectionately known by its members, is an exclusive digital member’s club for the top 1% and luxury influencers alike.
Generally secretive to those outside of the club, DDW grants those in its ranks rarefied access to London and NYC’s most coveted PR and luxury brand events gracing the glossy pages of the world’s best magazines and newspapers.
Although a DDW spokesperson wouldn’t reveal any names, we hear whispers that Don’t Die Wondering founding members include top actors, influencers and models as well as high net-worth industry leaders; offering joining new-commers the ability to rub shoulders with the top names at A-list events like London & NY Fashion Week, BAFTA, The Brit Awards, top Film Premieres and Frieze Art Fair.
Guests at the DDW Pre-BAFTA party featured leaders from film, fashion and society enjoying glasses of chilled Perrier-Jouet vintage rose champagne (served out of limited edition Baccarat crystal flutes) whilst tunes blasted by legendary Dj Jez Perreira of Annabel’s Club fame brought members to the dancefloor.
Membership to the Don’t Die Wondering society is available by application-only but it is too enticing not to try; we’re applying – wish us luck!
