Ian Stuart – The Blewcoat

I’ve always had this idea about celebrity designers but I was very pleasantly surprised.

No matter how many invites I get, my heart goes boom boom every time. Ian and his partner, Peter, have been in the industry for a long time. His list of people he designs for is massive.

Arriving at his new studio was magical. The building is stunning. The staff were warm and welcoming, handing me a glass of my fav…….bubbles. I met up with my very good friend Rula (who works for Bruce Russell a fab wedding planner) and her daughter Ria. Everyone was there and it was magic. The dresses….well….lets just say it took a lot to keep me from trying them on.

I was chatting away and all of a sudden I heard this voice…….in a stunning dress and a big Afro which I love. Pumeza Matshikiza, a fellow South African, was an absolute vision and her voice does things to you that should only happen when you are alone in your room.

The perfect building for a master designer. I can definitely see even more success to come….fab fab fab!
