I’ve finished my Fake Tan Testing series with Body Confidential. You can find all the reviews online, but here are the final two. Enjoy.
So, whilst milling around the press room spotting treats and delights, eating gorgeous things and touching expensive fashions all of which are soon to be on offer for Xmas shoppers I was told about a secret…. there was a party on the roof.
In true Selfridges style they’d spied an opportunity for fantasy and flooded the bloody roof to make way for a pop-up boating lake. Why? Because some rich bloke founded a new sugar (darling) and we must make cocktails to celebrate! I felt I was in an episode of AbFab. After Oysters and HixFix cocktails at Hix Restaurant we went up the express lift (with a library within it…) to have a look.
A swift 13 minutes of questions, non direct from the floor out of worry for rude hecklers (heckle, moi?), followed and Miss Doyle surpassed my expectations as a rather fantastic interviewer.
On the reasons for going into fashion Sarah, the considerably more business minded of the two, said: “sizing was always key for us”. The Lucy In Disguise store in London brings vintage clothing from around the world into the contemporary shop floor. Vintage sizes are notoriously awkward and Owen saw a market for change. Lily adds that “contemporary wear theses days is quite androgynous and we thought there was a hole in the market for femininity”
