The inaugural Jersey Style Awards took place at the Royal Showground in Trinity, Jersey on Saturday 24th June 2017 and was a spectacular success.
This new and exciting red carpet black tie gala dinner was designed to shine an international spotlight on the local tourism economy, food and travel, arts & culture and style from our magnificent jewel in the British Isles. We showcased this magnificent island of ours as one of the most stylish and sought after destinations in the world, highlighting the 48 businesses in the shortlist.
The glamorous award ceremony honoured, nurtured and recognised the local businesses, people and places and we saluted international tastemakers and fashion's most stylish celebrities as they attended our glittering gala.
We brought together a high profile panel of judges from across industry sectors who complemented the public vote which took place on the island, allowing everyone to have a voice.
For the 2017 event we were delighted to have secured some of the world's luxury brands to partner with us for the inaugural event.
The exclusive Swiss watch and jewellery brand Chopard was our Official Jeweller alongside Hettich Jewellers, who have been based in St.Helier for over a century. This wonderful family run business has brought an abundance of fine jewellery and luxury watch brands to the island, none more so than the exquisite jewellery house Chopard. A company that comes from a dynasty of fine watchmakers, Chopard believe that women's watches should be beautiful as well as dependable and as a company are famous for their fine diamond detailing and finesse.
We were also delighted that global business aviation services brand Gama Aviation Plc flew in our high profile guest list as our Official Aviation partner. With an office in Jersey, Gama have a range of charter aircraft available from their private aviation terminal on the island. From a small four seat Cessna Mustang to Gulfstream G550 and Challenger 604 they provide an unrivalled service.
Our VIP guests were collected by a fleet of chauffeur driven Porsche cars, courtesy of the Porsche Centre Jersey. Operated by Jacksons, the Channel Islands' premier car dealership and trusted by the world's leading manufacturers, Jacksons are committed to offering the highest levels of product and service and showcased the island's magnificent landscapes as they chauffered our VIP guests in June.
