This week, Made In The Shade co-organisers Carrie Maclennan + Clare Nicolson were lucky enough to be invited to attend the grand opening party of Nina Butkovich-Budden's Vintage Hair Parlour & Ladies Boudoir in London Town this week. The party was hosted by Nina and her team and held at the Pheonix Artist Club in London's Westend on Wednesday 8th October. Carrie & Clare were (unsurprisingly) in their element - meeting and mingling with London's glamorous underground vintage enthusiasts and other likeminded makers and creative entrepreneurs. The Sunday Times (oh yes) sent a photographer to cover the ladies' old time evening so keep your eyes open for shots from the Pheonix Club in the press! May Made In The Shade now be on the lips of jivers and designers alike!
As if we weren't ecstatic enough to have been able to join in the celebrations with Nina and her glamorous chums and the fabulous burlesque starlets, we're also thrilled to announce that Nina will be setting up salon at Made In The Shade during the course of the Festive Shopping Weekender at The Lighthouse on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th December. We will shortly be taking limited bookings on Nina's behalf. So - vintage enthusiasts! Glamour pusses! Burlesque godesses! Pin-up dreamers! Keep your finger tips at the ready over the next few weeks and remain poised to reserve your slot for an up-do! As Ophelia Bitz announced to the crowds on Wednesday, 'This woman will change your life!' Oh and she will....
