Carnaby Street Shopping Party

It is not a surprise that I adore Carnaby Street and its vibe. I remember when the street was a row of souvenir shops and now is the home of many independent stores offering something unique not found on the high street, as well as some chains carefully selected in order to match the style of this trendy Soho street. So with great pleasure I went to their biannual Shopping Party event where shops are offering 20%  discount and on top of that there are freebies, drinks and nibbles to be enjoyed by the shoppers.
My first stop has been at the new Terry de Havilland pop up shop in the Newburgh Quarter. Terry is here with a Russian customer who just bought a pair of gorgeous wedges and she is wearing them in this very picture. These shoes under UV lights change colour, so they are perfect for a disco night.
On the day as well as giving a 20% discount on his shoes, Terry de Havilland signed a card for the customer to keep. A real treat for who is a shoe fan. Check the collection at www.tdhcouture.com

It was full house at the Trendy Talks with Fashion expert from Grazia Magazine Katherine Ormerod who is a loyal presence at this event. The rail was sporting items from Carnaby Street and the area in order to spot the current trends and use the opportunity to shop with a nice discount. I can see some Terry de Havilland wedges and brogues with a satchel from Dr Martens.
Make up artists from Benefit Cosmetics UK were giving a makeover to some lucky few chosen while shopping and scouted for their looks and outfits. Here they are ready to be photographed for the Istagram shoot.
At Dr. Martens two fabulous girls were customising with ribbons, fabric daisies, studs and other embellishments shoes bought on the day. This girl is having a bunch of daisies stuck to her shoes and maybe those sweet ribbon shoelaces.
I've entered the shop to take a picture and the girls noticed straightaway my Liberty printed Dr Martens so they made a pair of sparkly purple shoelaces which I still got on my shoes. Check the other fantastic designs at www.drmartens.com
Music was in almost any shop with DJs spinning rhythm. Here we are at Lee Jeans shop with two very stilish DJs clad in Lee Jeans denim. Music was pumping out from the shop inviting customers to go in and indulge in a bit of a shopping spree. After all carrying a shopping bag would have given the chance to win a limited edition goodie bag filled with lots of treats.
The shop Lambretta has always live acts outside the premises during this event and this time we enjoy music from The Last of The Troubadours who with their music gathered lots of people. It has been difficult for me to take a picture because really it was crowded. If you've missed them check them out at
