For two consecutive nights in May, Tessa Packard London joined gallerist Lyndsey Ingram to host a private view of celebrated fashion photographer Miles Aldridge’s new exhibition, Please Return The Polaroid, at the Dickinson gallery on Jermyn Street. The exhibition spans almost two decades of Aldridge’s career and captures unintended and sometimes inexplicable moments that highlight the strangeness in a normal, everyday world.
The preview was presented in conjunction with a carefully curated selection of TPL jewellery, which fitted perfectly with Miles’s vibrant, pop-art inspired polaroids. Using showcases created specifically for the occasion, a colourful array of pieces from collections such as Fat Free were displayed, further highlighting the Andy Warhole-esque inspiration behind the exhibition and the idea that perishable goods and everyday objects can be transferred into something both eye-catching and timeless.
An intimate dinner for 30 influential tastemakers was followed by a cocktail party for 200, where guests were served contemporary, pop-art inspired canapés and rhubarb infused vodka cocktails, adding to the colourful and vibrant nature of the event.
