We had a wonderful selection of clothes from Craig Lawrence, Zoë Jordan, Bora Aksu, Leutton Postle and Krystof Strozyna with over 70 looks in total. The makeup was provided byContinue reading

Lulu Guinness is just so super cute. So when I heard she’d done a 14 piece t-shirt collection for Uniqlo I knew I wanted to pop by the event and buy a t-shirt. The queues were long but happy shoppers didn’t mind as they were not only given an opportunity to have a special postcardContinue reading
