LFW Closing Party at Tonteria

Last night at Tonteria, Cristal was splashed, latex body suits were donned and eyebrows were raised at their distinctly dominatrix themed party. Marking the close of London Fashion Week, Guy Pelly and friends enjoyed champagne in VIP surrounded by catwalk models in Soft Paris lingerie and cat masks. In conjunction with Profile Model Management and PRITCH London (who introduced their new ad campaign there) this was truly an event that sizzled. www.tonteria.co.uk

Basically doing what it says on the tin this is the perfect chance to celebrate the festival […]

Simmons Bar Review

For those in search of a brilliant Happy Hour offer or a slightly kookier bar in the Mornington Crescent or Camden area then look no further than Simmons Bar. Having opened at the end of last year, the interior is a mix of your Grandma’s sitting room – the chintzy wallpaper, the lamps mix matched crockery, the teapots that the drinks arrive in, and the flying ducks across the walls – crossed with a branch of Urban Outfitters – Simmons Bar is home to the largest skull shaped disco ball (we were in love) and also has a SNES console […]
