Cooler than cool fashion label PPQ held there very own ‘trash the carpet’ party earlier this week as they prepare to relocate from their store on Conduit Street in Mayfair to larger more extravagant premises nearby….
The genius duo behind the brand, Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker, were on hand to mingle with the celebrity driven crowd and ensure everybody’s glasses were kept full to the brim full of bubbles.
Amazingly, I’ve been testing my will power and detoxing throughout this week with no alcohol – so I stuck to Vitamin Water (my favourite new drink) and looked at all the glam crowd enjoying Snow Queen vodka cocktails and Asahi beer.
The star of the show was Peaches Geldof, seen above with Miss Molyneaux herself, who designs a range for the brand later this year. She made one of her first public appearances since the scandal of her ‘overdose’…..
When she walked in I watched almost 30 paparazzi lynch the poor girl as she arrived. I’m glad she’s not epileptic – otherwise she‘d be a goner!
Peaches is getting her life back on track and took off for Los Angeles the next morning where she’s having a girlie road trip with big sister Fifi.
She explained: ‘It’s going to be great to get away and clear my head. It’s been a crazy few weeks.”
Oh and also, Peaches has been doing some ‘good’ behind the scenes by auctioning off her old vintage dresses on Ebay to raise money for one of her favourite charities – the Sea Turtle Trust. She giggled as she explained her thinking behind the mini fundraiser: “I modeled all the clothes myself and we raised a load of money. I was really taking the piss when I was modeling the dresses though but most of them sold. They were pretty much all snapped up by fans in Germany – how random is that! I have no idea why, but I must have a bit of a following there.”
After the bash I popped along to see some friends at nearby Mayfair restaurant Automat. I bumped into the lovely Jaime Winstone who was dining with a group of friends and her bosom buddy Karen Clarkson (a very important stylist to the stars). Jaime’s a good girl and looks so cute in real life – teeny weeny and perfectly proportioned. And as you can see below, she hit the PPQ bash later that evening with boyfriend Alfie Allen – brother of Lily.
Other stars at the exclusive event included Camilla Rutherford, House of Holland genius Henry Holland, models Sara Gilmour and the gorgeous Ben Grimes, Paul Weller’s ever-so-slightly-freaky son Nat Weller, TV presenter and fashion stylist Hannah Sandling and the band, The Paddingtons.
