46. INTRODUCING † CHI-WAN SAN & NATALI STAJCIC †
Chi & Natali are both 29. They are the co-founders of THE PRESSERY – a raw & organic almond milk brand in East London.
Their almond milk comes in four delicious flavours > ORIGINAL, CACAO, BERRY and TUMERIC (my favourite). It’s super-natural goodness with no preservatives, additives or artificial sweetners. They are stocked in Daylesford & Selfridges too, so watch out for this great product next time you shop and are looking for a healthy alternative.

Finally, we got around to putting up the pictures from our SUMMER SAMPLE SALE on 22nd July, with fellow designers –
– BLAKE LDN (knitwear)
– YOLKE (womenswear)
– LEIVANKASH (jewellery)
– POPS (champagne popsicles)
It was a beautiful summer’s day & along with the sun, we had a brilliant turnout of customers that came all the way down to Kings Road, to shop & have some delicious Champagne popsicles.
To everyone that came – thank you! It was such a wonderful day & because of the positive response, we are already planning another in the same location for you in November.
In the meantime here are a few photos from the day – oh wouldn’t it be nice if the sun was still shining like that!?
Come on English summer – don’t do this to us!
