To celebrate the launch of the Malibu Moments collection team DL took to the road, to party with you lovely leopards! We brought some Ibiza sunshine to the streets of London, as we opened up our very first pop-up shop, on the world-famous Portobello Road! We popped up at London's Boxpark and also brought some wild to Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire!
We wanted to bring some Iberian spirit to Portobello to give you leopards the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the extraordinary world of Dancing Leopard. If you were lucky enough to bag yourself an exclusive invite to our opening party, you’ll already know the evening was a night to remember! With a little help from our friends and sponsors, we brought our vibe into Kensington! As the sun set, the party roared on into the night. But don’t worry if you couldn’t make it, we’re here to give you the low down of what went on…
Our pink neon Dancing Leopard sign leapt out onto the street below, as our white-washed walls made for the perfect instagram backdrop. Our new collection pieces hung proudly on display, and set the room ablaze with colour, whilst Brydie headed up the decks. As music filled the room, our guests started to arrive and the party got underway. Our guest list included DL’s friends, family, favourite influencers and loyal leopards! It was great to see everyone coming together to share their passion for the brand and everything it stands for. The room was a wash with colour as our leopards browsed the vibrant rails of our new collection. Our most-popular piece during the evening had to be our Malibu Dress. This summer showstopper became a firm favourite in the fitting room, as influencers snapped pics in this selfie-approved piece.
To complement our tropical summer collection, was an aesthetically pleasing table of summer treats courtesy of Platter London. Dressed with flowers and palm leaves, our selection of sushi, tropical fruits and vegan pudding tasted as beautiful as it looked! The vegan ethic carried through to our exclusive DL tote bags, which were given out at the end of the evening. Filled with sweet vegan treats from Nush Foods and The NU Company, facial moisturiser from Urban Veda and tea from Equinox; attendees were gifted a reusable DL tote bag as a thank you for attending the event.

After our residency on Portobello Road, DL moved onto London’s famous Boxpark, Hackney! Our Boxpark event was the first time we could share with you all, our brand new swimwear collection, along with your most-loved pieces! You London leopards really loved our wild prints during London's mini heatwave! It's no surprise our Mini Santa Cruz Dress was a firm favourite at Boxpark! Next up on our tour was Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire! The DL team were there all weekend, making sure they brought the wild to Wilderness fest! As you may have noticed from the pics below - we had a blast! The sassy Sookie Dress proved to be a festival favourite among you leopards! Mary and Sophie rocked this piece with boots and statement sunnies, from the AM into PM! It was so fun to meet you leopards and dance the weekend away! Did you know all proceeds from our pop up shop at Wilderness Festival, were donated to Think Like A Pony, an intervention that transforms the lives of vulnerable children! This meant you leopards were able to look amazing and feel amazing too, as you have helped to support such an amazing organisation!
