Congratulations to our lovely Amelia (Mimi) who has just finished her first year at Highbury college where she is studying Fashion and Design.
I had the pleasure of attending the fashion show last week and I was blown away by the creative talents of these young people, including Mimi. She really is a superstar and we love having her around - here she is with her 'Denim design' modelled by a friend.
