British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu has revealed her first sponsorship from the luxury industry with a brand ambassadorship for LVMH-owned Tiffany.
The news broke at a public appearance with VOGUE magazine at The Londoner hotel, venue from November 12 to 13 of the WATCHPRO Salon.
The Londoner’s Instagram feed celebrated: “Last night, we hosted the fourth annual @britishvogue and @tiffanyandco event celebrating fashion and film, alongside @edward_enninful OBE and @alexandrearnault
“We were delighted to welcome the industry’s biggest and most respected names as our first guests to experience 8 at The Londoner – our izakaya rooftop bar and restaurant.”
VOGUE’s choice of The Londoner for such a major event bolsters the luxury hotel’s claim to be the most exciting 5-star opening in the capital this year.
WATCHPRO Salon is the first major event, open to the watch-loving public, to take place in the spectacular venue.
US Open winner Ms Raducanu announced her association with Tiffany in a paid post, remarking: “Very excited to join the iconic @tiffanyandco family as a House Ambassador. Being able to wear these special jewellery pieces over the past few weeks has been an honour!”
Speculation has been rife about the future earning potential for the tennis star, with big name watch sponsors certain to be circling.
WATCHPRO has already speculated about the possibility of Rolex coming knocking, but Tiffany’s parent organisation LVMH might also expand its partnership with Ms Raducanu, making TAG Heuer (previously fronted by Maria Sharapova) a reasonable bet.
The Londoner Hotel is hosting WATCHPRO Salon, a showcase of prestige watchmakers and a chance for brands, retailers and press to meet collectors and enthusiasts in 5-star luxury.
The two-day event takes place from November 12 to 13 at The Londoner, a brand new 5-star hotel on London’s Leicester Square.
