WHATS ON: SAVAGE BEAUTY – ALEXANDER McQUEEN
Since we first heard the Alexander McQueen ‘Savage Beauty’ exhibition would be coming to our favourite Art & Design Museum, we could hardly contain our excitement. We have finally got our hands on some tickets and will be heading to the show to celebrate the extraordinary talents of the late designer. Whether you are a fan of Fashion, Design & Textiles or simply curious – this is an exhibition that you really should make time to see. It has broken ticket sale record history at the V&A and became the second biggest show ever at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Alexander McQueen carved out a highly successful career in fashion and is one of our modern iconic and innovative designers that will be talked about and treasured for many many years to come.
14th March – 2nd August 2015. To sign up to the V&A newsletter for more information on tickets, opening times and workshops please see the website: www.vam.ac.uk
GO: HAWKER HOUSE
As you may have gathered – we love great food. And with it, great music too. We talk about it a lot and have recently become obsessed with London’s bountiful ‘Street Feast’. However, with the weather as grim as it has been, we understand that outdoor socialising is not for everyone. So, we are hugely pleased to have discovered Street Feast’s new venture – Hawker House. Enjoy three-storeys of food, drink & music from our favourite vendors – including B.O.Bs Lobster, Breddos and Yum Bun, every Saturday & Sunday from 5pm – all, crucially, indoors. There is a Whiskey Roulette bar in the style of a casino and glorious cocktails from the masters at Milk & Honey on the top floor.
Hawker House 260-264 Kingsland Road, London E8 4DG

FILM: CATCH ME DADDY
Make no mistake, this film is not fluffy, nor particularly happy. But there are some humorous moments dotted throughout this violent drama. It is a powerful and gritty story about a British-Asian teenager (Laila) who is on the run from her family, hiding in Yorkshire with her boyfriend (Aaron). As her family catch up with her, tragedy prevails. Both ambiguous and unpredictable – the trailer doesn’t give away a thing, except the tone to expect. A grimly impressive debut British Independent Film from brothers Daniel and Matthew Wolfe.
In cinemas from 27th Feb, check your local cinema listing for details and tickets.
BLOG: GARANCE DORÉ
Garance Doré is one of the best blogs we have come across of late. Packed full of inspiration from make-up and Fashion to Interiors and recipes. This is serious, grown-up cool all wrapped up in wonderfully stylish way. French illustrator and writer Garance started the blog in 2006 by way of communicating her stories, dreams and ideas. The blog is a great read and available in both English and French. Pictured above is the TriBeCa suite of the Greenwich Hotel in New York.
