This is going to be a quick post, as I am buried under large mountains of clothes and if I don’t move them soon I won’t be able to get to the fridge/bed/loo.
Fashion pop-up sale
The reason for me being surrounded by even more clothes than usual is that I am having a sale on Wednesday in Camden Town and all of these lovely things need to be priced, steamed and put on hangers before they go on sale.
Something for everyone
There are some fierce women out there, doing amazing things. They have created brands like Laain (athleisure, i.e. posh workout gear), Georgina Goodman (footwear, including the universally comfy and stylish babouche slipper-shoe), Zoe & Morgan (clever jewellers who sell, among other things, big earrings – my weakness), Eki Orleans (whose African prints are so striking on silk), Aloe (more silk…I own the hammered silk PJ’s and they are heavenly) and Tamara Salman (think printed bags, from the Goyard factory, no less). Viola, a treasure trove of a boutique on Connaught Street in London, has beautiful and wearable brands like Masscob and Raquel Allegra to tempt you.
The girls from Primrose Hill Candles will be there too, so we’ll smell good.
I almost forgot the reason I’m doing this. I started off having sales in my home, with pre-loved designer and vintage clothes from my own wardrobe and my clients’ wardrobes (lovely Celine, Louis Vuitton, Acne, Saint Laurent, Romeo Gigli, etc) but I’ve outgrown the space. So I’ve hired a castle.
