LONDON, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- To coincide with the much-anticipated release of Sex and the City - The Movie, another chic girlfriend-centered event takes place next Wednesday, June 11th with the launch of Ladies & The City, a new organisation committed to the importance of friendships between women.

Echoing the solid friendships and closeness at the core of the series that has struck such a chord with women everywhere, Ladies & The City creates trips tailor-made for girlfriends, allowing them to prioritise their friendship for the time of a trip.

With the perfect blend of culture, shopping, spa time, gourmet restaurants, and a handpicked assortment of unique experiences, whether in Cannes, Monaco, New York or London, Ladies & The City has a global reach and a flair for local experiences, and creates opportunities for women to reconnect with their friends while travelling.

The exclusive, invitation-only Ladies & The City launch begins at 6.30 p.m. next Wednesday at the Barbican, with quirky elements designed to engage and entertain, starting, naturally with cocktails! The evening continues with canapés, handbag readings (think palm reading, just using your handbag...), and souvenir pictures with the backdrop of a scene from the movie, and the private screening of Sex and the City - The Movie begins at 8.30 p.m.

This event is designed to celebrate female friendships, their nurturing spirit, their healing and transformative powers, and to launch Ladies & The City in an appropriately stylish and sophisticated way. Dress code: Fabulous shoes and designer handbags of course!
