When at lunch with my lovely matey Cressida Meale (Riding on Buses with Bags), I picked her brains for any cool boutiques that I should know about and she came up with this….Hoxton Boutique is hidden away just off Old Street selling all sorts of young labels from around the world including Surface to Air, Dr Denim and Eley Kishimoto. Without meaning to sound too generic, this place is quirky with a homely feel where you can find something original but not scary alternative. There’s a real mixture of youthful vibrancy (like the huge treasure trove of costume jewellery) and clean cut, sassy pieces but somehow Hoxton Boutique seem to pull off the mish mash.

Whats more, we had Tessa Maye, the winner of Storm’s Gatwick Runway Models competition on her first ever shoot! Not too shabby for a rookie…
