London Style Guide was the inspiration behind our most recent trip to London as it opened up a side of the capital that we’d never ventured into before. With promises of great local eateries, amazing vintage shops and quirky independent bars and retailers, we caught the train on a Saturday morning with anticipation! It did of […]

We just received details of a new service that lets you have bespoke tailored garments made to measure, for a pretty reasonable price. We haven’t trialled the service yet, but love the concept.

Services like @ukfashionintern have […]

Many of the products made so far however are either not that practical to wear or offer functionality many of us weren’t even looking for or need.  A wearable clothing  brand we came across recently is Australian […]
