July 11, 2024

In the heart of London’s bustling Marylebone village, August invited its spirited community to come together and mark the latest chapter in the brand’s evolution. Hosted in the Number Six room at the iconic Marylebone Hotel, the event served as a celebration of trust, connection and vision – the shared values that unite August and its homeowners.

Opening the evening, August CEO & Co-Founder, Mélie Dunod, welcomed over 80 attendees with heartening words of gratitude, echoing the warmth of the occasion. Speaking to the past, present and future, Mélie recognised the trusting nature of August’s homeowners, the character of its growing family, and in turn, its contribution to local communities.

Our esteemed guests, Michele and David, homeowners in the Signature Collection, Sartoux, reflected on their August journey, giving both familiar faces and those considering joining the community a first-hand account of the August way of living. Speaking on their time at each property, the couple highlighted not only the pristine condition and immaculate design of the properties, but the inviting feeling of home-from-home. Additionally, they shared insights into the diverse and varied experiences on offer in each location, and the sense of community that being a homeowner brings.

Inspiring speeches preceded an intimate evening of socialising and story sharing, while August’s genuine hospitality and commitment to its community were experienced wholeheartedly. Also in attendance were members of August’s advisory, legal and design teams who remained on hand, answering questions from existing homeowners, and those exploring the possibility of becoming a part of the community.
