The Lillingston Collection brings together a group of remarkable pioneers who have driven the development of today’s dazzling luxury lifestyle services.
Sophie Lillingston founded Lillingston 25 years ago, almost single-handedly transforming the art of throwing a party into a complete experience. As word spread and growing demand broadened the business’s remit, Fleur Cooper’s company Nastrovia, a corporate and luxury hospitality company merged with Lillingston to bring a new clientele to the business. Sophie remains at the helm with Fleur by her side as the Group MD. With a combined little black book of contacts that reads like a who’s who of the world’s movers and shakers, the sky’s the limit.
After spending 10 years at London’s most exclusive catering company Last Supper, Simon Clark, Director of Events, came on board in 2009 to manage our ever-growing team and to coordinate the most impressive and complex events with utter precision. He is matched by the skills of Robyn Isherwood, who has been galvanising the London events industry since her undergraduate days, amassing experience at the Admirable Crichton and GSP along the way. The addition of Sophie Stuart, our incredible in house designer, has transformed how our events look taking the business from strength to strength.
In 2017, the Lillingston Collection emerged organically out of an understanding of our clients’ needs not only for a special event or celebration, but for their day-to-day lives, lifestyle and travel. Drawing on experience on both sides of the business, Robyn became Director of Lifestyle by Lillingston (LBL), offering a discreet lifestyle concierge together with her team. While working in all corners of the globe, no request has yet been unmet.
Travel by Lillingston (TBL) launched in 2017, after merging with luxury travel company Suite DNA, founded by Katy McCann. Managing Director Katy and Director Celine Saffray use their joined 30-years’ experience and stunning travel knowledge to head the TBL team and look after clients to exacting requirements. Katy developed the Mr & Mrs Smith hotel collection for 10 years since its founding in 2003 and together with Celine’s years as Director of Sales of the likes of Claridge’s, The Connaught, The Dorchester Collection and Bulgari Hotel their understanding of the hotels, villas and travel world is unmatched anywhere. Taking the same personal and tailored approach that we apply to every event or personal service, Travel by Lillingston is a cut above the rest.
