It was party time for Animal HQ last week, as we ventured out on a bright-enough Tuesday afternoon in June and claimed a little section of Sandbanks beach as the destination for our summer luau.

    As our designers presented the SS19 range to our sales force and effectively signed off the end of a brand new collection, it was time we gathered for a little celebratory get-together.

    We fired up the BBQs, inflated the blow-up palm tree and before you knew it, were partying away.

    The onshore winds and overcast skies soon gave in to a beautiful sunset and glassy conditions, and soon enough we were out there on the water enjoying a little post-work paddle. One of us had to fall in, and this time around it was Dan, our Garment Tech Manager, who paid the price dearly with a fully-clothed dip in the sea.

    Our ‘worst (best?) Hawaiian shirt’ competition saw the majority of us bringing out our A game, from old-school Animal floral prints and authentic tourist paraphernalia, to the ultimate cheese fest. At that game, it was no other than Laurence, our MD, who led by example with a beautifully oversized and multi-coloured short sleeve number.

    Signature moves were in full flow, as we partied to a silent disco hosted by our friends at Silent Yoga UK – and the dancing continued well into the evening.

    Needless to say we had an epic time – excellent company, good food, great music, excellent outfits and plenty of laughs.

    Until next time!
