E! Entertainment awarded the event as “best party of the year!” in 2009. Nathan secured Pixie Lott to perform at the show hosted by Karl Lagerfeld, who had been the Creative Director at Fendi since 1965. This was for an event series called Fendi O’ which was the official Paris Fashion Week party held on 6th October 2009 – Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 Collections.
Nathan has worked with the club for a long time now, and this particular party has been one of his most favourite events to date! it was in his first couple of years working in international music and fashion, and for Fendi! So, it was such a huge and exciting project to be working on

He also secured and arranged for celebrities to attend the event, including Katy Perry and Russel Brand who were huge stars at the time and got married in 2010, they were such a power couple when they were together. It was back in the day in 2009 when fashion events were much more authentic than they are now, in terms of the audience and the attendance. This was Paris! which is obviously one of the most important fashion cities in the world. It was amazing to be part of something like this!
PIXIE LOTT PERFORMS AT THE VIP ROOMS IN PARIS FOR FENDI
Pixie Lott was actually late coming on stage and Karl Lagerfeld walked away and didn’t watch the performance because he was annoyed about her being late! Someone at the event was trying to appease Karl by informing him that she was just warming up her voice and getting prepared for the performance, and Karl said to her “you’re stupid and you have no education”!
Everyone wanted to say hello to Karl, who stood almost statue-like in the most prominent part of the room his, white hair perfectly styled, fingerless gloves linked through the arm of one supermodel or another – he looked cool and calm as he usually did, but behind the ever-present black sunglasses his eyes were taking everything in. He was checking every last detail of what the team had put together for his event.
KARL LAGERFELD, HIS FAVOURITE DRINK AND A STAR-STUDDED EVENT, A HAPPY EVENING FOR FENDI
Karl was super happy with the event, he rarely smiled and never for camera, but when I spoke to him briefly over his favourite drink of Diet Coke! he actually grinned so his gleaming white teeth matched his hair. But when the living legend that was Prince walked into the event, even Karl’s jaw dropped…… come back soon to find out what it’s like to spend a star-studded evening with pop’s very own royalty.
