A simply wonderfully warm November evening was the perfect setting for the launch of the Three Little Birds Restaurant. This exciting new concept is the brainchild of April Jackson who you may also recognise as a contestant on the current episodes of; The Apprentice.

We at CGHQ, applaud the enterprising former CG Couture model and muse in her venture. Set in the increasingly popular area of London’s Brixton, burgeoning with trendy eclectic eateries, the Jamaican themed cafe and boutique by day, transforms in the evening into a lively Rum Shop with a fine list of cocktails to savour. A visit is highly recommended.

Mary-Lisa and friends – Ascot Ladies

Mary-Lisa and friends

Clariscia met these gorgeous looking ladies on her journey into work this morning. Mary-Lisa and friends brought a colourful touch of summer splendour to Brixton with their lovely attire and hats on their way to the Royal Ascot Horse Race.

We are loving their sensible footwear plan with co-ordinating flip flops with a change of shoes neatly nearby.  We all at CGHQ wish them a lucky successful wager.

African-American Couturier in 1900s

Zelda
Clariscia saw this article, she thought it was interesting and wanted to share it with you.

SHE WAS AN ORIGINAL & HAD WAY MORE DRAMA THAN US AND STILL A TRUE CREATIVE…….Zelda Wynn Valdes (or Zelda Barbour Wynn Valdes )(June 28, 1905 – September 26, 2001) was an African-American fashion designer and costumer. In 1948, she opened her own shop on Broadway in New York City which was the first in the area to be owned by an African-American.

Zelda was revered for her design talent and best known for her skill in highlighting the female body. Her curve-hugging creations were worn and loved by a host of Hollywood’s biggest starlets during the 1940s and 50s, including Joyce Bryant, Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald and Mae West. The Pennsylvania-native’s key role in glamorizing these women caught the attention of Playboy’s Hugh Hefner and he commissioned Zelda to design the first-ever Playboy Bunny costumes. And history has proven, the low-cut, skin-tight, sexy outfits are an iconic symbol of seduction and allure, forever ingrained in pop culture.

Her sexy, hip-hugging gowns were worn by celebrities and celebrity wives like Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Joyce Bryant, Maria (Mrs. Nat “King”) Cole, Edna (Mrs. Sugar Ray) Robinson and later superstars like Gladys Knight and opera diva Jessye Norman. She also designed dresses for legendary figures like Marlene Dietrich and Mae West.

ROYAL WEDDING

As the wait for the biggest wedding day of the year swept the nation, and every moment of the build up was watched with anticipation, Clariscia was contacted by the Erin Simpson show for inclusion in their coverage of the special day. The shoot was a hoot with laughter and champagne, and the final video documentary report  was aired in New Zealand. Special thanks to Jon Franks.
