Recently, we invited an inspiring group of women together to celebrate our latest collection over a delicious dinner in West Hollywood.

Marina Speaking at Dinner

From longtime friends of the brand to inspiring artists and multi-hyphenate wonders, we couldn’t have asked for a better set of people to spend a beautiful evening with.

“There is nothing better than celebrating in person again, especially with a group of the most amazing and inspiring women, with delicious food on a perfect balmy Los Angeles evening,” says founder and Creative Director Marina Cortbawi.

The dinner took place at the legendary Cecconi’s, which holds a special place in Marina’s heart as the very first restaurant she went to upon arriving in the US eleven years ago.

Drinks were outside in the secret garden, while dinner was held in the beautiful butterfly room.

Guests enjoyed a delicious Italian meal with burrata caprese and pastas, alongside spritzes and wine.

The conversation flowed as old friends caught up and new friends were made, but the highlight of the night may just have been seeing the mix of past and current seasons of Merlette worn so seamlessly — highlighting exactly how timeless the pieces truly are.
