Private Security Company in London Shines During Star-studded Events

Will this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show finally be open to the public? A news feature on the Telegraph says it is possible, albeit at a rather steep price. Cornucopia Events, an event planning company based in London, exclusively offers £10,000-£12,000 tickets to the giant brand’s iconic lingerie fashion show that takes place on 2nd December. Olivia Bergin, fashion editor for the digital publication, describes the spectacle as follows:

Victoria's Secret

It’s a catwalk extravaganza that’s being staged in London for the first time, features the world’s most sought-after bodies and performers and costs millions to produce. In a nutshell, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is not your average event.

The event has mostly been held in New York since its inception in 1995 and features the lingerie giant’s Angels (spokesmodels who have become household names thanks to their career-cementing contracts) strut down the runway in fantastical creations that rarely make it into stores – unless you count its window displays. Joining Angels Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima at this year at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre are rumoured to be London girls Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.

While the strutting happens, the likes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Taylor Swift serenade the audience. The spectacle is then broadcast to millions of viewers across the world.

According to an unnamed source, the tickets come with a hefty price tag that is meant to attract only individuals with a high net worth. That’s assuming these people have the classy personality to fit the event’s star-studded guest list. Although a Victoria’s Secret executive says no one is yet authorised to sell tickets to the invite-only extravaganza, highly connected concierge services say they can make it happen for well-paying guests.

A prospect of this sort can be a potential cause for alarm since the privacy of celebrities and high-profile personalities could potentially be jeopardised. After all, what’s to stop aggressive paparazzi or undesirables from purchasing their own tickets and disrupting the peace at such an otherwise fun event? Given the unpredictable nature of these threats, high-profile people would be wise to invest in London security services.

A reputable London close protection service provider like Westminster Security employs highly trained former police and military security personnel to serve as bodyguards for high-net-worth clients. With superior protection at hand, celebrities and other high-profile individuals can set their minds at ease knowing that they are safe at whatever function or after-party they attend.

London Security Guards Maintain Safety in Luxurious Establishments

As one of the most popular fashion capitals of the world, London is home to several respected designer brands including Burberry, Mulberry, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, and Paul Smith. With these powerhouse firms based in the heart of Great Britain, it does not come as a surprise that conglomerate Condé Nast wants to expand its magazine-inspired hospitality brands in the city, as reported by Matthew Chapman for Marketing Magazine:

Condé Nast could launch its GQ, Vogue and Tatler branded-restaurants and bars in London within a couple of years as it explores ways of extending its brands throughout the hospitality industry. 

The Condé Nast International Restaurants division of the publishing company is already running five up-market restaurants and bars in Moscow, Dubai, and Kiev, but is about to extend the initiative into Bangkok and Kazakhstan.

Gary Robinson, director of restaurants at Condé Nast International Restaurants, said: “For me London is the ultimate goal, it is where we ought to be. And in the same vein we ought to be in Paris, Milan and New York. It is something we are working towards.” 

Robinson hopes there could be a London launch “within the next couple of years” depending on Condé Nast finding the right licensing partner and location.

Conde Nast hopes to launch GQ, Vogue and Tatler-branded restaurants and bars in Uk

A lot of prominent personalities like Vogue’s Anna Wintour, as well as celebrities like Kate Moss and Daisy Lowe, frequently fly to London for exclusive events such as London Fashion Week and other gatherings, together with many local socialites. Such events are often held in iconic venues where professional London security guards are tasked to maintain safety and order.

Luxurious establishments like the planned Condé Nast restaurants fit the profile of places that important people would visit, and such locations would certainly need exceptional security in London provided by experienced firms such as Westminster Security. As the city continues to attract rich, famous, influential, and powerful individuals, many high-end locations would have to rely on these dependable security services to ensure that VIPs and other guests are sufficiently protected during social events.

Private security firms employ highly trained professionals who will constantly monitor the vicinity and adjacent sections of luxurious establishments. Moreover, they can sweep party venues in advance to ensure that there are no threats that could disrupt glamorous functions and gatherings. They act as a visual and physical deterrent to any undesirables, as well as providing a friendly front of house point of contact for VIP’s and customers.

Luxury restaurants and event venues alike, need to employ reliable security services. A lack of order and security might result in mishaps or bad publicity. Having a reputable private security firm as a partner would be beneficial in maintaining the peace and reputation of high-class establishment.
