Announcing ‘The Duke’s Emporium’: my new mini shop.

The Duke's Emporium.


I have always enjoyed going to Battler’s Green, close to Radlett and Elstree, to escape from London quickly (I can drive it in 20 minutes; it is even quicker by train) and stand somewhere I can look out to pastures, animals and enjoy the peace; but also some great shopping!
From the Farm Shop, to Fired Earth, I always find something to buy; but it is when I hit the beautiful vintage store ‘The Hertfordshire Craft Collective’, that I always find something to treasure. There are mini shops selling well curated pieces: from deco crockery, to industrial furniture; from beautiful ballgowns, to books and bakelite, through to knitting circle accoutrements and kitchenalia, as well as so much more.
Having finally accepted that whatever I buy is not the last thing I shall ever purchase and that I might really enjoy the circle of selling some things to make space for new (to me) treats, I have set up a mini shop, named in honour of my son Dukey: ‘The Duke’s Emporium’. There you can find some of my 1930′s hand embroidered tablecloths, some vintage children’s furniture, clothes, games and books, as well as a Bill Gibb skirt, beautiful crockery, Kate Bush and Elvis Presley treasures and so much more.
I feel that this is the start of ‘The Duke’s Emporium’: watch this space – but I have a feeling this is something I shall love, nurture and develop, as a lovely sideline sidekick to my styling career.
At the ‘Hertfordshire Craft Collective’, Suzanne and Jason always meet customers, with a warm smile and helpful kindness: with proper, fantastic one-on-one boutique customer service, so I really do hope you get a chance to go there and enjoy the space and possibly even buy something from ‘The Duke’s Emporium’, before it all sells out!

Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Beautiful in Blue at the Glamour Awards, in a Mishka Vintage sourced dress. Altered into a new classic.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor on the Glamour Awards Red Carpet 2014 in Mishka Vintage - altered beauty dress.



I have long loved this 1960′s blue brocade dress at Mishka, and wondered why no-one else has snapped it up. When I took Sophie there for a shopping fest, post-lunch date last week, I was therefore delighted that she saw it’s beauty too.
She had it shortened, with it’s straps removed by a local tailor, I think it looks heavenly and hope that you like it too…
I wish more people realised that a lovely piece of clothing with potential can be easily altered into something remarkable by a local tailor. My tailor Chris is a legend, often fixing clothes for me, Kentish Town locals and the cast of West End musicals with brilliant skill. But that’s another post in the making!..

Sophie Ellis-Bextor: Wanderlust Tour Styling.

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

I worked on Sophie’s Wanderlust tour looks.
I had some beautiful sheer dresses made by Shadiye for the discotastic second half.
For the first half, I had Sophie’s dirndl dresses adapted by my amazing tailor, Chris and then embroidered by Laura Lees.
All a skip and a hop from my home, until last month in NW5.
