for no reason in particular… just because
This week we took Ada Rose and Betty & Walter for a road trip reconnaissance up north. It went something like this;
London to Tarporley (lovely evening in the Swan Inn)
Tarporley to Wilmslow, Wilmslow to Knutsford, Knutsford to Alderley Edge, Alderley Edge to Didsbury, then to Chorlton, then to Manchester City where we parked up and had 40 winks, then off to the gritty, inspirational, cool and fantastical Northern Quarter of Manchester for breakfast (poached eggs and fried tomatoes) in the Koffee Pot
Then we had an hour or two on foot checking out the area, with me (finally away from being behind the wheel of the car) snapping away with my camera (posted pics below).
Then back to London via Chester (sorry Shrewsbury, we ran out of time this trip!)
Following a very exciting post this morning on Fashion Monitor, I thought it was about time I gave a sneaky ‘through the keyhole’ peek at one of the new brands I have been developing over the past year…
It’s called ADA ROSE, after my Great Grandmothers, and is a graceful grown up fashion accessories brand for ladies, inspired by a time where style was simply elegant with a blend of common sense and ingenuity.
The grand launch is not till Spring next year and there will be lots more to hear about between now and then, but for the time being it is all extremely exciting to be back on the radar and starting to share the fruits of my labours with the world again.
