This year, the Moët & Chandon Grand Day, an annual rendezvous debuted in 2016, continued its festive tradition with a glittering lineup of events celebrating the epic journey of Moët Impérial which, from the world’s podiums to Hollywood’s red carpet, has marked personal & public milestones launching global celebratory traditions for 150 years. From day to evening and well into the night, Moët & Chandon brought together over a million people from New York City to London and of course Nairobi, in a bubbling toast to its universal icon of celebration.

It was an honor to be one of the invited guests to the glittery event which saw guests dressed in sparkling gold and white at the Tribe hotel then later for a night out at Kiza lounge and restaurant. June 22, 2019 was the marked D-day in Nairobi with Nigeria and South Africa seen as some of the other two countries in Africa marking the auspicious event; the 150th anniversary of Moët Impérial, on the same day.

Since 1743, Moët & Chandon has been a master of the art of celebration and savoir-fête contributing to the enduring appeal of celebratory installations, like the champagne pyramid, that have become a worldwide tradition. Today the champagne pyramid is a signature symbol of the House and this art installation was the spectacular centerpiece of the events that took place on Moët & Chandon Grand Day, to set the “flow” of overflowing and festive generosity.

The style and fashion at the event was one to wow upon. Starkly inspiring, as the guests brought their best foot forward to fit into the gold and white theme most remarkably. Everyone looked ravishing. On a personal note it was also fun with the bubbly to bring the warmth on, the vigorous dance sessions, hearty laughter marked on people’s faces, the alluring ambience and music enlightening the soul, all these marking the true purpose of the celebration. Every moment is worth marking in life and this was a special #Moetmoment.

Congratulations Moët Impérial for 150 years!!!

A votre sante!!!
