Internationally-renowned fashion illustrator and author, Megan Hess landed at Vakkaru Maldives for the exclusive launch of her third book in The Claris Collection, Claris: Bonjour Riviera on 5 and 6 January 2020. Surrounded by glistening turquoise waters and luxurious island settings, Vakkaru Maldives set the scene for Claris’ new adventure in the tropics.
Set against the crystal-clear waters surrounding Vakkaru Maldives and under the shaded coconut trees of Cabana Beach, tables were set in the theme of white and blue, each child who attended received a first-print of the new Claris book as well as a Claris plush toy and a signature Claris mocktail. Children of all ages were then treated to a world’s first when Megan Hess unveiled and read from her new book, Claris: Bonjour Riviera, holding each child’s imagination captive with Claris’ adventure as she stows away on the family jet to the French Riviera. Children that attended the book launch each received a personally signed copy of Claris: Bonjour Riviera.
