London Fashion week officially starts tomorrow

Dear Shaded Viewers,

London Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow. I won’t be in London for Mei Hui Liu’s show so we met for breakfast. Mei Hui Liu then gave me a preview of her collection at her shop. Her handsome friend Martin came over for a visit.

Natacha makes custom made shoes and her atelier is in the back of a fetish shop. Mei Hui and I were laughing as we walked through the courtyard entrance in Camden. You can visit Natacha’s site for more information on how you too could order her shoes. In the past she has done boots for David Bowie and dreams to make some for Prince. Mei Hui had been at the Prince concert the night before.

Today Natacha was super happy because she just received Vogue and inside was a spread by the photogrpher Mario Testino with great shots of her shoes.


Robb Young and Christos Papathanasiou invited me to a welcome to London and early birthday dinner at their new home. Robb even baked me an amazing Canadian maple walnut cake, that and the spinach frittata were such a treat that they almost made me forget the Nigerian frauds that have highjacked my gmail account.

I am not in Nigeria, I am in London for LFW. Please click SPAM when you receive mail from and do not send mail to me at that address. PLEASE BLOCK USER from your account.
