Beauty Resource - provides a huge network of beauty professionals, enabling visitors to find a professional close to them and appropriate for their needs.

The Countess of Frog - Christine Bolza designs beautiful silk dresses with gold accents, tops for smart casual and jackets. They are all very special and likely to make great vintage pieces.

Christine’s sculpture background gives her an interesting take on how she combines colour and cuts her garments into shapes that flatter the body and are also sexy, perfect for boy shapes.

Delivery is within two weeks as design and construction is London-based. Prices start around £500 for dresses and £300 for tops.

As each piece is unique, you will not see anyone else in what you are wearing.

Her shop: Top Floor, 123 Beaufort Street, (same side as Joseph, between Fulham & Elm Park Rd) Tel: 07841) 573-009


The right spectacle frames will take off years and give you a fantastic look, especially if you can no longer wear eye make-up.

Sveta, Ragnini and Cedric at 36 Opticians are so understanding on face shapes and the frames that will suit them. They have one of the most comprehensive collections of frames in London. Website: www.36opticans.co.uk


May I introduce the luxury women's label, Truffle? The concept is inspired by the ingredient itself: it can't be cultivated, only discovered in certain areas of the world, hunted in the darkest hours of the morning with passion and fascination, and then transformed into the second most expensive ingredient in the world.

This concept is explored through my made-to-order/measure private 'concierge' service for time-poor, stylish, discerning women who desire exclusivity. Truffle offers a modern twist on Saville Row for women, offering Made-to-Order, Made-to-Measure, Bespoke, and Ready-to-Wear fashions.
