India Hicks is a British designer, writer, businesswoman, and former fashion model. After graduating from the New England School of Photography, Hicks became an interior designer and a model for Ralph Lauren, among others. She moved to the Bahamas in 1996, where she published books, promoted home and beauty products, and introduced a line of jewellery. Hicks travels frequently to disaster sites in her role with the non-profit organization Global Empowerment Mission. A daughter of Lady Pamela Hicks, and renowned designer David Hicks, she is a descendant of the Mountbatten family and goddaughter to HM King Charles III.
India will be discussing her book “An Entertaining Story”, in which she presents readers with her irreverent take on style and entertaining. India will describe her spin on entertaining for all occasions – family suppers, big dinners, British breakfasts and most importantly – cocktail hour – plus situations like Panic Dinner, when you suddenly have a crowd descend and need to feed a lot of people quickly and stylishly. She will describe and offer tips and ideas on how to host events full of personality and charm, using whatever you may have to hand, whilst also weaving in stories about her own family and life in the Bahamas and in England.
Tickets include your choice of a glass of Champagne or a Rum Runner cocktail. Signed copies of India’s book will be available to purchase on the evening.
This literary event is hosted at The Lanesborough Hotel in London in partnership with Rizzoli New York and is part of the Mayfair Times Literary Festival.
