It's time to dust off the old speaking microphone! It's been ages since I took part in a talk about fashion and empowerment. I am pleased to support @TheLAGOMConcept and @N7FUK. I am super proud of all that Alessandra is creating with LAGOM – a space for emerging designers and empowering brands. She sent me the nicest email, we connected and I said what the heck! ▫️▫️ I will be doing some giveaways of FDRBook but most importantly talking about my new project which launches on 4th December (more to come on that…). I hope to see my London based followers there. It will be bang in the middle of East London.
