Between the delicious cocktails and great company, I could quite happily have whiled away the entire evening at Lily and Lionel’s Liberty launch but of course, it wasn’t the only event on our agenda. Pretty soon it was time to head back into the sweaty confines of the Northern Line and off to Blues Kitchen in Camden to celebrate the first anniversary of cooler-than-cool Notting Hill boutique, Village Bicycle. We soon realised that the unpleasant and highly unglamorous tube journey had been well worth the effort as Village Bicycle founder, Willa Kestwick certainly knows how to throw a party. I clearly wasn’t alone in this sentiment as everyone from Clara Paget to Alex Vargas made the trek to be there, prompting Willa to comment that Camden High Street had never seen so many stylish people!
The evening kicked off with vodka cocktails, soul food platters and popcorn before DJ sets from Bip Ling, Zara Martin and Leah Weller got us all on the dancefloor. Unlike your regular fash bash, this wasn’t a 6 to 8pm affair and with TRIBES set to headline, we knew we were in for the long haul. Given the level of drink mixing that went on, I probably shouldn’t be surprised that the night culminated in a rather embarassing kareoke performance.
Love Ella. X
