On Wednesday 21st October, Tilley Soaps treated a select group of Melbourne media to an afternoon of delicious cuisine and cocktails in celebration of the brand’s 150 years of Australian made products for the home and body.

To celebrate this incredible milestone, Tilley was thrilled to launch its special anniversary range, Violet, a collaboration with Sydney illustrator Erin Whitty.

The Stables of Como’s Garden Pavilion was styled to the nines in stunning florals by Victoria Whitelaw including larger-than-life ‘150’ numerals crafted from delicate blooms and floral suspension creating a spectacular feature over guests as they dined.

Following the custom menu that began with Violet Gin cocktails and finished with Vanilla Panna Cotta topped with Violet Coulis and Sugared Flowers, guests were invited to press their very own custom soap via an original Tilley Soaps heritage soap press from 1949 – creating a social media frenzy.

Guests included Complete Wedding Magazine, Little One, Couturing, Onya, The Block’s Dea Jolly and MKR’s Ash Pollard among special friends of Tilley, some of whom have been with the company since the 1960s!
