To celebrate London Fashion Week we asked a selection of top designers to tell us their favourite spots for shopping, relaxing and getting inspired.
Tamara and Natasha Surguladze (the Tata and Naka of the label’s name) are twin sisters, who created their brand after graduating from Central Saint Martins. Ten years later their label has been a consistent presence at London Fashion Week, regularly producing womenswear with plenty of charm and a little touch of humour.
