Flying Colours specialises in bringing “the world of luxury to the City”.
Since 2010, we have worked work closely with some of the finest luxury companies in London, Paris and Edinburgh to create fun and stylish networking events for City professionals.
Our events inspire by being a unique experience which money cannot buy. We have held a wide variety of events, from Savile Row designers talking about new takes on men’s luxury tailoring, exclusive Bond Street previews of exclusive high jewellery collections never before seen in this country through to Polar explorers inspiring us with their feats.
Recent events include an exclusive watchmaking cocktail where Vacheron Constantin Paris presented exceptional timepieces which were paired with Louis Roederer champagne; Annouskha Ducas MBE talking about her 30 year career designing jewellery to our ‘Top Women in the City’ and Johnnie Walker Blue label hosting two dinners at Hide for event organisers/corporate gift purchasers.
Guests are selected from a range of City institutions including leading banks, hedge funds, accountancy firms, Fintech, Telecoms and law practices. Guests do not pay to attend an event. “Once again I found the other women a joy to meet and am so pleased to have found a network that seems to fit exactly with where I am and also that has a sensible size number. I have been to networking events in the past that have so many women members in it is impossible to build relationships, whereas I am already re-meeting and networking with women again at your events.” Director at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management.

Testimonials from Attendees
“I very much enjoyed the evening – I knew the Longchamp name although it is clearly thanks to your event that I discovered their story, brand and products. I am happy with my purchase and intend to go back for the quality of their products and of the service received by the professional and friendly staff.”
Chief Analyst, Paris.
“Wow – another wonderful evening. Thank you!” I am in the process of arranging a return trip for my raffle prize – I am still astonished by this! Also to arrange an initial discussion for a dress and/or double-breasted jacket”.
Managing Director, following an event with The Deck.
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising such a lovely evening last night. It completely opened my eyes to whisky in a new light, and Blue Label especially – I showed the bottle to my boss this morning and we talked about Christmas gifting, so that’s definitely one to revisit later in the year with the Johnnie Walker team.
“Thanks so much for organising last night’ event. I had a lot of fun and purchased a handbag! The staff were amazing!”
Vice President, following an event at Weekend MaxMara
“I still only buy suits – and many of my casual clothes – from Hackett! That event helped me discover a brand that fits my body type and style preferences remarkably well, so I’m sticking with it. ”
