Monique Lhuillier (Fashion Designer)
"I love to travel and I’ve been wanting to go to the Amangiri Resort in Utah. The very unique resort nestled in Utah’s beautiful desert would be perfect for a relaxing getaway before the start of the new year. This would be nature heaven for me!"

Georgina Chapman (Co-founder of Marchesa)
“What I would really love for Christmas is two free weeks (at least!) to go on a cultural and trekking holiday in Bhutan and Tibet. I last trekked in Nepal almost 20 years ago, it was possibly the most inspirational trip I have taken both spiritually and artistically. I have since yearned to visit Bhutan and Tibet. Harvey… hint, hint!!!”
Elisa Dahan (Co-Creative Director and Co-Founder of Mackage)
