From a mind-boggling mentalist to a couture Christmas tree, MUST see events this holiday season

When it comes to style, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a fashionable passerby.

As fashion editors, we’re moved by all of the above, and then some. We’re exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we attend VIP events; we’re tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop — a lot.

To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge. We hope this Friday series will serve as a buying guide and point of inspiration for all.

This week’s edition: MUST-see events this holiday season.

PALM BEACH HOLIDAY CHIC

Palm Beach retail destination The Royal Poinciana Plaza has collaborated with world-renowned designer, Johnson Hartig of Libertine, this holiday season. 

The world-renowned creator – who’s dressed countless celebs including Mick Jagger, Cher and Usher – reimagined the property’s iconic surfboard Christmas tree and holiday décor like only he could.  

‘Partnering with The Royal Poinciana Plaza on this project has been such a cool experience for me,’ said Johnson. 

‘During a time when so much of the world seemed to come to a halt, Palm Beach continued to thrive and to welcome visitors and transplants from New York, California, and beyond. 

‘My designs for the holiday tree capture the colorful and classic Palm Beach essence along with more edgy and urban prints representative of this new energy currently infusing the area.’
