Hottest fashion trends right now:

Colorful cigarette trousers are all over the High Street, and print clashing is also very big.

Popular places to shop:

For the full experience, nothing beats Selfridges. For a real sense of upcoming London-based brands, Wolf and Badger is the best.

One beauty product I won’t leave home without:

Definitely rainproof mascara.

Hottest nail polish color right now:

Anything goes when it comes to color. London is nail art crazy right now, and Wah Nails Wraps take the cake.

Three fashion/beauty items every tourist should bring:

Anything will fly fashion-wise, as long as you aren’t sopping wet. London fog and rain is no joke, so definitely bring an umbrella, zip-top purse, and closed-toe shoes.

If you have one day in my city, don’t miss:

First head to Bond Street (people watching and shopping galore), and then see a West End show, and eat somewhere wildly delicious and quirky like DSTRKT.

City’s signature yummy food/drink:

Afternoon tea. It’s the pizza to our New York.

What I love most about my city:

From each end of the Central line, you’ll find yourself in a million different situations. The lifestyle differences and hidden treasures change at every turn. Nobody’s London is the same.

My city’s style in one sentence:

An eclectic, creative mix of high and low fashion.
