Natasha Rose pictured on Garden Walk during a Purified Footwear photography exhibition in Space 54, Shoreditch, wearing Vivienne Westwood leather jacket & Hudson boots.
One of the most joyful characters one is likely to meet is Natasha Rose; and styling rock bands and creating outlandish cupcakes are just a couple of the string’s on her bow. Here she is wearing a Vivienne Westwood leather jacket, Zara dress, Topshop necklace and tights and Purified boots. She was pictured on Garden Walk during a Purified Footwear photography exhibition in Space 54, Shoreditch. Natasha is crazy about heritage British designers such as Westwood; and she works for London shoe makers Hudson, whose contemporary designs have heavy classic British influences.
Declaring itself the first pop-up mall and constructed entirely of shipping containers, Boxpark by Shoreditch High Street station was due a visit.
[dropcap]D[/dropcap]eclaring itself the first pop-up shopping mall and constructed entirely of shipping containers, Boxpark by Shoreditch High Street station was due a visit. With most of the boutique style shops taking up one container, they are of cosy proportions, but big enough to hold fitting rooms and helpful staff. If like me you get dizzy just thinking of entering Lakeside shopping centre, then Boxpark is the place for you. With hipster essentials OnePiece and Levi’s, food pit stops such as Pieminster and pin-up lingerie shop Playful Promises, there’s something for most folk. Preppy boys are well provided for with One True Saxon and Original Penguin amongst others, and there’s plenty of style inspiration to be found from visitors and staff alike.Rumesa Hussain from Ilford working at Lacoste.

Riding down Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch I came across Rachel and Karlie who were looking after menswear shop A Child of the Jago. The shop is a feast for the eyes in itself with a gothic feel harking back to Victorian East London, and I’m told they will be branching out into women’s wear in 2013. Rachel Smith (right) wears a vintage leather jacket (only £7!), blouse from Topshop concessions, jodhpurs from a riding shop and cardigan and brogues from Topshop. Karlie Shelley, (left) who’s currently designing her own clothes line, wears a metre of navy blue boucle fabric as a shawl from a market, a Vivienne Westwood t-shirt, a Child Of The Jago apron, socks from a hosiery shop on Neal Street and Vivienne Westwood shoes.
