When Dani and I were invited to do a catwalk show in Ibiza's luxury spa hotel Atzaro, we didn't think twice.
Which better place to combine pleasure and work? One of our favourite holiday destinations anyway (and location of my wedding last year), we could not wait to go.
One thing was sure, for our catwalk show in the garden of Atzaro, next to its Asian inspired pool, we have to introduce Felder Felder bikinis - And so we did.
Firstly though, let's start with our arrival on the White Island.
Ibiza in August is a busy place and so it happened that in the week that we were there, every day brought new adventures.
Landing Saturday at midnight at Ibiza airport, I was picked up and brought straight to my husband Arthur Baker's DJ gig at Le Plaja. Perfect timing- his disco tinted set is in full blast to an enthusiastic crowd, when I arrive.

From there we are off to Elephant in San Rafael, where Luciano has just started a weekly night for a geust list of 200. Usually a Moroccan fusion restaurant; on his night, Elephant clears out the tables to make space for an intimate dance-floor.
From there, my husband decides it's time to go home. Just that home is a commune style Villa, called the "Hacienda" with an underground Club built into a stone grotto.
Among our fellow "communers" are Le Baron's resident Dj Duo " Miau Miau"- two very cool girls to go wild in the cave with.

Next day, we move into the Felder Felder villa, which will become HQ for the slowly but surely approaching catwalk show.
Sunday night the rest of the crew arrives and we head to our new favourite local place, El Racu with the brothers from Two Many Djs, enjoying steaks and chicken (the guys) and luscious salads (the girls).
DINNER AT RACU
We bail out on a night at Space, but make up for it with Manumission's Clare and LEAH Tilbury's joined birthday party at Aura the next night. Jordie Harsh is on the decks and top models are on the dance-floor. The studio 54 themed dress code and the forest like outdoor setting makes for a great hang out.

Time flies and Tuesday, we spend all day eating. First we have a 5 hour lunch at EL Chiringuito (FYI, that's where I got married) and then we head to our friend's stunning Villa for Italian buffet dinner.

Wednesday is the day before the show and we have an interview lined up with Ibiza's daily paper "Diaro di Ibiza". We are interviewed by the wonderful Juan Soaves, who is the editor of the newspaper.

Straight from there, we are off to the model casting, where all the boys fight to come along to. Girls only though at this "body-liscious" casting.
CASTING "IBIZA STYLE"
Back at the Villa, Dani and I are getting very excited about our Rock'nRoll Bikinis, trying on everything in our garden. Oh, did I mention the ocean view with perfect sunset? It's hard to think of a better place to work?

OUR STUDIO FOR THE WEEK
Thursday is the day of our show and things are steaming up. We are heading to Atzaro to set up our backstage area, the, for the day, converted Yoga shala.

All our friends jump in to assist, ending up with a backstage team of lawyers, ad agency creatives, bankers, New York Yoga gurus and record producers- the "highest paid interns ever seen at a fashion show" one of our friends jokes.
SHOW IS ABOUT TO START
The setting is stunning,: a catwalk under orange trees, next to wide fields, a crowd of 2000 people has gathered to watch our show.

The atmosphere is buzzing and the crowd is screaming when the first girls exit to the catwalk to Arthur 's (who does all our show music) crazy remix of "Fame".
The bikinis look fab and we style up the show with some signature leather harnesses and floor length bustier dresses to add some spectacle.
OUR ROCK'N'ROLL BIKINIS GO DOWN WELL.
SOME LONG BUSTIER DRESSES FOR ADDES SPECTACLE
We are cheered with a very happy crowd (and bottles of Champagne, of course) - the energy is high.

From there we part hop to bars and clubs and villas until the early hours.
The next day, we relax at the beach, right next to El Chiringuito, called Chiringay (for real) a gay beach with the best ocean mile.
In the evening, we have dinner at my favourite Italian on the island "La Paloma". This rustic countryside place, which seems to host everyone from international Rockstars and fashion directors to local farmers.
Even though it is Pete Tong's night at Pacha, rumour spreads at La Paloma, that an invite only club underneath a tennis court in a private villa is the place to be.
It takes us till end of the dinner to get ourselves onto the guest list and the journey can begin.

A forty - minute ride through endless forests and 2 stones with blue lizards later, we arrive at the villa, which turns out to be a mansion, really.
A fully built club with views onto a huge garden, filled with a mix of designers, models, bankers and Notting Hill teenagers, dancing to crazy remixes of "Rolling in the Deep".
Half studio 54, half best friend's BBQ, we dance , talk and lounge in the garden till the early morning hours and can't believe it's our last day on the island.
