Now, of course we love to shop online, but while you sit at your desk, mouse poised over the ‘purchase’ button, ask yourself this; ‘when was the last time I actually stepped foot in a shop, tried something on (before buying!) and actually spoke to someone who can help me?’ I bet the answer is ‘aaaages ago’! So we urge you to get up and go exploring, and where better to start than at the brand new fashion boutique in Notting Hill, E.K.A.
It threw open its doors earlier this month and is already attracting a very style savvy crowd, aching to get their hands on the cool and exclusive labels that it stocks, discovered by the founder, Emma Kavanagh. She sourced unique and diverse products from LA to Stockholm and just around the corner in West London, including Wren, Erin Kleinberg and everyone’s new favourite label, Studio Nicholson, who specialise in making cool boys clothes for cool girls.
But if you live further afield, we have heard of the perfect reason to travel to Notting Hill, and it’s not just for the Hummingbird bakery cupcakes (although they are on offer too). On the 1st June, Emma is inviting you to sample the collections, champagne and aforementioned cupcakes, AND get a 25% discount off purchases!
And with a wealth of fashion experience, the very stylish Emma will be on hand to style you and offer fashion tips. Is there a better way to spend a Wednesday evening? We think not.
