Meet the Designer during LFW

One of our favourite charities, Women for Women International which empowers disadvantaged women, joins forces with womenswear designer Daniel Blake at an intimate fashion presentation on the penultimate night of London Fashion Week (September 16th).  Tickets (via the Daniel Blake site) are £50 each and include a champagne and canape reception  and one to ones with the designer after the presentation.
The location is the contemporary Andaz Hotel at Liverpool Street station so expect to bump into female City movers and shakers!  One lucky ticket holder will win a Harris Tweed tailored jacket fitted by Daniel.  All proceeds  plus a percentage of any sales to be donated to Women for Women and their important work.

Nike’s FuelBand monitors your activity when linked to your iPhone/Android.  We like the idea and the look but not the cost of almost £130!  Purchase one here in black or (we prefer) white:
Or if you are more interested in monitoring what you eat, sleep and movement, try Jawbone UP which costs less than £100.
