Here in Ibiza it’s a given that you need to be a jack of all trades – having multi-faceted skills gets you a long way on this island! It also helps to be able to work under pressure, and by that we mean to organise entire events with very little or no notice at all. At Taste, we don’t panic when we get a last minute request; we relish the challenge of turning a project into an overnight success. In fact, we’d say we thrive on it – it’s just all part of the buzz of island life, and one of the many things we enjoy about our job.
That’s why when the team behind famous UK fashion label, Quiz, contacted us to ask for help setting up an event with very little turnaround time, we jumped at the chance. What was the deal? Well, the Quiz team were landing on Ibiza on 22 May and urgently needed to pull an itinerary together for the six fashion influencers they were bringing along with them; a plan that would showcase the very best bits of Ibiza while also providing the backdrop for a series of photoshoots. In addition, the girls would be going through a wardrobe change at each venue to really exhibit Quiz’s latest range.
The turnaround for this series of events was tight – we only had a few days to get everything sorted. Nevertheless, we approached it with a fiery determination and our little black book of contacts and it wasn’t long before we’d created the perfect schedule for Quiz’s clued-up influencers. The first photoshoot would take place at Nikki Beach, where we organised beds for the girls, as well as complimentary food and drinks, and sunshine – but we can’t take credit for that. After a day spent lounging in blissful relaxation, the girls met us at Pacha for the Mixmag pre-IMS party – the official start of the summer here in Ibiza. Bicep and honey Dijon were behind the decks and the girls were kept topped up with drinks throughout the night.
With beach clubs and super clubs ticked off the list, the next day we went for something a bit more chilled. Courtesy of Boats Ibiza, the girls were taken on a three-hour trip around Ibiza’s most beautiful bays on a luxury Sunseeker Camargue, glass of cava in hand, of course. First stop of the day was Cala Conta, one of Ibiza’s most famous beaches thanks to its crystal clear waters and soft white sand. It was also the location of the next photoshoot, where the girls broadcasted live on Facebook and Snapchat, showing their thousands of dedicated followers exactly what they were getting up to. Later in the evening and back on dry land, we arranged dinner for the girls at one of the hottest new restaurants on the island, and favourite of the A-List, Tatel. They were wined and dined and then whisked off to Eden in San Antonio to continue the night, VIP style.
The trip ended in style at Ocean Beach Ibiza, Ibiza’s number one pool party venue. Lounging on complimentary beds, the girls were treated to bubbles, lunch and whole lot of happy, feel-good tunes thanks to the superstar DJs in action by the pool. They kept snapping pics all the while, dressed head to toe in Quiz clothing, showing everyone at home exactly what they were missing. Job done! We’d like to extend a huge thanks to the girls, Daisey O’Donnell, Arianna Atjar, Ellie O’Donnel, Jess Hunt, Lucy Gann and Alisha May, who were all such a pleasure to work with. Likewise, to the Quiz clothing team for asking us to be involved in this glorified glam-fest! Just another day living the dream on the White Isle.
