AW15 Shopping Event at Precious

Today we popped in to see our friends at Precious our lovely independent stockist located down a little lane off of Spitalfields  Market in East London. 

Precious is a little treasure trove of beautifully selected brands. The clothes, shoes and accessories are so carefully curated by owner Kate so when we heard that they were having an AW15 shopping event it was the prefect excuse to pop down & check out the new season gorgeousness. 

 We were treated to a quick masterclass from Becksondergaard, showing us the best ways to wear a scarf (and believe us, there are a lot more ways than you would think).

Here our Brand Assistant Sophie models one of the ways we were shown.
