Scenes from the Collier Campbell launch event…

So last week we launched The Collier Campbell Archive in the UK. With distinguished speakers, a stunning backdrop of classic 1950s gowns, a large and passionately engaged crowd, two incredible books to talk about, and plenty of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, it was no surprise that the launch went swimmingly.

Let the captions tell the story.
