Jeanette's shop launch at Start

My fabulous friend Jeanette launched his new shop in the basement of START boutique in Shoreditch last night.  Entertainment for the evening was off-the-wall tranny-punk act, Lady Noise.  As ever there was a great turnout.  I didn't have my camera on the right setting... again!  So apologies for the slightly blurry pictures.  Note to self; must read the manual for a change instead of just pressing things and hoping for the best.

Jeanette's shop is selling menswear and womenswear and has his and hers fitting rooms decorated by Louise Gray and James Long.  Stock includes some rather marvellous current and vintage pieces from designers Jonathan Saunders, James Long, Nicholas Kirkwood, Louise Grey, Roksanda Ilincic and Blaak.

I went along with the lovely actress Daisy Beaumont.  Calloh Callay sorted out the bar and we drank G&T's with gin from Plymouth Gin.

Brix Smith-Start's boutique START.  I would have loved to have seen Brix but she was filming with Gok

Gorgeous jewellery designer Husam el Odeh who I shall be featuring here soon

The amazing Mr Jonny Woo.  Jonny will be hosting the main stage on Sunday for the Lovebox festival... Grace Jones is playing, it's bound to be brilliant!
