Grazia HQ saw a style storm when we launched the Fash Factor in June. The talent search brought designers in their droves, eager to show their creations to our illustrious judging panel of powerful buyers, bloggers and Grazia editors, as well as Henry Holland and Jonathan Saunders. One lady who caught our beady eye was Ali Mapletoft representing Age of Reason.
Waiting nervously in the queue, she told us her silk scarves capture the British sense of humour thanks to brilliantly playful prints, from dolls to doggies. So we’re very proud to hear a selection of Ali’s rocker pugs have just arrived at Start London. Woop! The over-sized Anarchy Dogs are printed on a rock ‘n’ roll Union Jack and come in three different styles. So we say get down to Brix Smith’s store (the lady is known for her pug love, of course) and get wrapped up pronto!
