Our guest today is gorgeous Lily Fortescue, the girl who created the CheekFrills brand- cool knickers that come in a pack, more desirable than the macaroons of Ladurée  and everyone in the fashion world is desiring right now.


 Tell us about yourself and what you do: I am part of the mastermind behind CheekFrills – we make the best knickers in the world since 2012 and can be found in Selfridges, Liberty, Shopbop, Barney’s, Bloomingdale`s etc.

 Location: I live in Fulham but split my time between my boyfriend’s house in Chelsea and work in Holland Park.

 Why London? It has everything you could want in a city – buzzy and inspiring as well as areas with such serenity to them like my favourite street Westbourne Grove !

 Favourite places to have dinner/lunch/coffee: My favourite place to have lunch is  this dumpling and noodle bar on  Kings Road… I can’t explain why, but I just love it! Zuma for dinner, coffee has to be at the Good life eatery and juices at Joe and the Juice (they also do the best sarnies) and then 202 for the best breakfasts!


 Favourite club: I normally hate clubs, but the new place Cafe Kaizen owned by my friends Dan and Timo is just great. They know how to cause some trouble and bring a crowd!

The best place in the world for you is: Provence – I’m so relaxed and happy there. Been going for 7 years with my family.

Describe your style: It’s normally very relaxed and it involves gym kit but I love a good leather trouser blazer combo and everything by Gianvito Rossi!

 What are your fashion staples that you cannot live without: Helmut Lang blazer , Givenchy boots and great Zara t-shirts.

 Your biggest dream: To be a success for my future children and  a good person .
