What a treat I had yesterday - I had the opportunity to meet one of my most admired and adored ladies in the business - Celia Birtwell. To launch her new print collaboration with Uniqlo she set up a little signing soiree with ink and fountain pen at the ready. Here she is with perfectly manicured multi-colour nails which reminds me to share this video of her recent SHOWstudio project "Finger Painting" with Marian Newman and Stephen Jones.
Also find out more about her career to date via her interview on Desert Island Discs here. Shop her new collection for Uniqlo here...........
Well here it is folks, two of my favourite brands coming together to collaborate and making rainbow shoes! What's there not to LOVE = Lazy Oaf vs. Kickers !!!!!!!!!! Last evening was the launch night at their new flagship store in Soho on Ganton Street. These are the styles of glitter, spectrum and Minnie Mouse inspired boots ........... mainline collection......... and some of guests. See more of the action over on their blog and facebook..........

As part of the Studio Africa season, Diesel held a radio weekend broadcasting live from their flagship store on Regent Street with a schedule of back to back djs and live acts. Here is Stephen Budd from Africa Express who kicked off the proceedings on Saturday morning ........... ending on a set by Awesome Tapes From Africa at the wrap party I hosted (complete with cases of awesome tapes to mix!). The whole programme was streamed live thru Dazed Digital with Afrika Boy doing a live P.A both days (see above) turning the shopping street into a jam-packed block party on Saturday night. For the rest of this week different evening events are being catered by Zoe's Ghana Kitchen who put on a smashing smash'n'grab buffet with a peanut curry she described as "a sexy suggestion of spice" when I enquired on it's Scotch Bonnet heat.
Head over to the site to see the complete line-up and discover the playlists.
