There was a point in my speech where I got a little emotional.
I'd only sketched down some points on the back of an envelope, mostly thanking everyone from the brands, to the audience, to manager James Girdwood.
There was also a particular shout-out for Mantas Lesauskas from Honorific and Simone Mattioli from Umbria Verde (below) - who made the Permanent Style valet stand and our Finest Knitwear respectively, and had come to spend time in the shop and talk to people about their creations.
But then I mentioned how proud I was the first time I saw the 'Permanent Style' sign above the door. And how long it seemed since I'd started a little style blog.
And I believe there was a tiny catch in my voice. Because it genuinely means a lot, to me and to everyone involved in Permanent Style.
So one more round of thanks - to everyone, to you all, to readers everywhere.
Here are some pictures from our opening party, which was absolutely rammed, and tremendous fun.
Thank you again.
