This just in from last night’s Diesel/Showstudio/Hywel Davies book bash held at Diesel’s zhuzhy showroom in Kings Cross:
All the display copies of Hywel Davies’ book ’100 New Fashion Designers’ which had been artfully placed on Grecian style plinths were pinched throughout the night proving that £20 is still too steep for the majority of fashion folk (mind you, who sells a book at a book launch?). One uncouth guest even bothered to clip the crystal from the showroom chandelier. How classy. Another partygoer was seen trying to squeeze a floor light into a too-small carrier bag while two guests were caught rummaging backstage trying to get their hands on a pair of Diesel’s limited edition “Dirty Thirty jeans” (to be launched for one day only on 10th October) and had to be promptly removed from the venue by security. How very shabby.
