This week I was at L’Escargot on Soho’s Greek Street checking out the launch of new brand Chic Hangers London.
One-woman-band Sophie showed me around the venue where she used each upstairs room to showcase her designs.
The pieces are all casual wear which stands out for interesting details such as the cuffs on shirts, or the flattering way they drape and hang from the body.
I had a browse through the Autumn/Winter capsule collection as well as a few items from the Spring/Summer range which were still in sampling mode.
Each piece was displayed on hangers and over partitions lit up with colourful lights, which perfectly complimented the dim lighting in the venue.
Guests were served champagne and canapes (think arancini, mini burgers and battered prawns) while being introduced to the range which counts former Made In Chelsea star Ashley James as one of its catalogue models.
Sophie told me she didn’t know the reality girl previously instead they met through a casting and got along famously when it came to the photo shoot in east London.
Footage from the day of shooting was shown on a large screen in the background as people mingled in the bar.
Those viewing the collection also got treated to a manicure and I opted for a midnight blue hue.
My favourite looks are the Chiffon Insert Drape Dress which has a chiffon rear, the zebra print tunic dress and an upcoming navy blue jumpsuit which is from the SS15.
