Well a week on and whilst James has been holding fort, my titian hair and I have clocked up a transatlantic flight, a domestic flight, two cities and a host of fittings and new clients. It was a great trip - warmer than the UK, but I have sworn never again to do a fitting after 8 hours on a plane and the same day I land (never mind 20 minutes after checking in)! I was not on form...huge apologies Mr.W!
I stayed at The James - a lovely, buzzy boutique hotel on The Magnificent Mile... (highly recommended if you're passing through).
Back in Blighty it has been none stop since I landed - fixing up lasts from my US fittings, putting through orders and preparing for important business presentations...one of the social highlights this week was visiting our display at The New Craftsmen. We are slightly in awe of the company we are keeping at this beautiful pop up shop opposite The Connaught...it is so exciting to be in a gallery space!
Until next week, our last post before the Christmas break, happy shoemaking
