Louise - BOX PARK
Box Park is the world’s first pop-up container mall. The ground floor showcases young street wear brands such as Vans, New-Era, One Piece, Urban Ears, Gola, Route One, Calvin Klein and Farah Vintage. The Upper floor is perfect for a relaxed afternoon drink with friends or a chilled out meal.
The relaxed atmosphere and layout eases you in to an unusual shopping/dining experience that is both young and hip without trying too hard.
Boxpark has been promoted as the most innovative shopping concept ever. It appears to be a much bigger project than your every day pop up project. Boxpark is open in the heart of Shoreditch for the next five years, take a visit and discover a unique collection on international fashion and lifestyle brands, galleries and cafes.
at Dover Street Market, i managed to fool a naive old shop assistant into letting me try on an Alexander McQueen couture gown and a pair of cigar coloured heels (picture above)
I told her that I work for Vogue Italia and my model, Sophia couldn’t make the fitting but COINCIDENTALLY, I have the EXACT body type as her (minus the breasts).
Well, it fit me like a glove and I would love to walk around in that £4,500 dress everyday if I could. Pushing my look, i also asked if I could try on some heels to go with the gown.
“What size is your model?”
“I’m a six” I replied.
“me and my model are both a six… its very fortunate for our photoshoots”
i met David Gandy at London Fashion Week and he was such a lovely (and beautiful man)
didn’t manage to get a picture with him, but here’s a picture i’d taken of him
