Yeah – Thursday night, and the sun is still shining! After a great appointment at MTV’s studios it was a quick cab journey to check out a few Notting Hill openings. First up was the preview evening of the Mary Portas Living and Giving shop on Westbourne Grove for Save the Children. We’d arranged for our client Designer Alterations to offer a 10% donation to the charity for any alterations needed by customers from when the shop officially opens on Saturday. It was great to snoop around and see all the fabulous bargains to be had – which ranges from vintage Chanel handbags to new Marc Jacobs pieces and lots of Jaeger! Am sure they will be mobbed but with rails of stock so be sure to check it out.
Sadly Mary Portas wasn’t there, but we made do with this life-size cut out (see above)
Just around the corner on Ledbury Road was the opening of the new Vintage Academe shop which has incredible designer vintage pieces, ranging from Thierry Mugler, Pucci to original Halston. Great for one off pieces and the party was rocking – with lots of ladies in vintage frocks serving some delicious sparkling vodka!
Then if was off to Soho catch up with ex-colleagues from my Channel Five days who now work in all kinds of places like Channel 4 and Sky TV.
Finally a quiet dinner in Soho & a black cab journey home as the light of London flashed by.
We love London! Have a great weekend
