Jean Genie: styling with Brix

15 January 2010

  Brix Smith Start

Thinking of braving it out to the shops tomorrow? Well, if it’s London you’re heading to then why not make an appointment with the inimitable Brix Smith-Start at her Shoreditch boutique, where she will be working her magic in her Saturday Styling Sessions, which launch tomorrow.

You might know her as sidekick to Gok Wan on his Fashion Fix, a rock chick from her ‘80s days playing bass in The Fall or The Bangles, but as well as her media career, Mrs Smith-Start really knows her fashion; from spangled eveningwear to the hardest-to-find item of all – perfectly fitting jeans.

Her fashion business with husband Philip Start has grown from a single menswear boutique in 2002 to four shops plus a great online boutique.

We love the fact that even though she’s on telly, Brix isn’t too grand to be on the shop floor running around after the customers, and her services come with a recommendation from Times uber journalist, Caitlin Moran; 'Brix Smith-Start is a genius at matching arses to jeans.' Enough said.

To book a session with Brix, simply call 020 7739 8071 or email 42-44 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3BN.
