Party Diary // Gossip

So last night's Rokkit/ Trim party, went down in style. The Bathhouse was absolutely heaving by the time this little Trim Blogger arrived around 10pm. Trim's own PR aficionado Naz Foroodian was whirlwinding around in a pair of spectacular black velvety suede wedges, meeting, greeting and hugging.

Inside people guzzled complimentary cocktails and danced to solid beats, with a dash of poptastic something. Dom had apparently started off the music in style with an early set. Tom, Ross and Paul could be spotted on the dancefloor, along with Stink director Gaelle Denis who's known for her very, very good animation. All were looking gorgeous and enjoying the contrast of old Victorian Turkish Bathhouse and storming party.

Nearby, musician and singer Mara Carlyle, who's playing at Latitude festival this weekend, was chatting to editor Julia Knight and actress/ writer Sophie Woolley. All were wearing posh frocks, which we think is entirely fabulous. Sophie recently starred as Gabby in Channel 4's Cast Offs and has a cult following for her own darkly comic shows. This Friday at 11pm she's apparently making a rare appearance as herself on radio 4, taking about what things sound like now that she's gone deaf. Not that she was plugging it, she was too busy dancing, cocktail in hand. New animation director Sam Mason was also there. Sam recently completed his stunning student film Wild Robot at St Martins, and it includes music by his equally talented brother Willy Mason. And there was a lot of talent present; director and photographer Borkur Sigthorsson danced past and told us he's working on projects in Iceland and London over the coming months. There was also a large Nexus contingent, although they were having so much fun we never actually caught up with them properly. But we did chat briefly to producer Daniella Steadman from Love who seemed to be working very hard. Leila and Gus on the other hand were enjoying the party too much to think of work. "I'm on the V.I.P table!" enthused Gus, with a princely gesture designed to invite us to join his very nice (but kinda identical to all the rest) table. Finally Julia Stephenson of Short and Sweet, London's weekly short film evening, told us she's hosting the UK's First ever 3D Stereoscopic film festival launching on Friday (Yes with 3D GLASSES and everything!). We are excited.

Thanks everyone who made the party fantastic. Thanks Naz, thanks Girlcore. Hope to see many of you soon at Trim!
