Salon 58 soirée with Jackie Burger

There existed a time when women would gather together, under the roof of an inspiring host, to amuse one another, to refine their taste and increase their knowledge through conversation. This scintillating social circle was called a salon and was an Italian invention of the 16th century, which then flourished in France throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. This inspiring exchange of ideas has been reborn in a contemporary setting which I was privileged to attend last Saturday. Style icon Jackie Burger of Salon 58 has recreated the traditional salon after noting that women have become too busy to truly engage with other women and feed off the energy and creativity of each other in a positive and empowering way.

The theme for Saturday’s soirée was Allure: The Art of Being a Woman. Acting as a Curator and Salonnière, Jackie Burger and her fellow collaborators focused on the concept of what makes a woman who she is and how to convey this by the way she presents herself.
