A few short visits with London friends, Robb Young and Elaine Neocleous at W London

Dear Shaded Viewers,

After the Absolut/Gareth Pugh Party at the W London, I went back to my room and my friend, Robb Young, the author of Power Dressing: First Ladies , Women Politicians and Fashion, came by for a visit.

He only likes Miguel Villalobos to take his portrait, cannot blame him for that, none the less…

This morning my friend Elaine Neocleous met me at the hotel and gave me a sweater that I'd tried on during last fashion week. She is now doing a new line called 'Misfits for  Friends'.
