Designers Against Aids is an organisation that brings together fashion designers, celebrities, models, major retailers and fashion magazines to raise awareness of AIDS. They have just launched an on-line shop, selling a collection of Fair Trade certified organic underwear, nightwear and T-shirts (many limited edition pieces designed by celebrities). All the money raised goes to fund AIDS education, so this is a fantastic chance to buy something amazing and make a real difference. Check out their new site – www.designersagainstaidsshop.com.

bedtime story nights…. all the latest details!!!

1190580711-Edmund_Dulac___firebird

Would you like to take a magical trip back in time and rediscover the wonder and beauty of childhood innocence?

London’s sexiest boutique hotel, 40 WiNKS, is launching a programme of Strange and Wonderful events this June, starting with a series of amazing Bedtime Story Nights!!

In an atmosphere of dreamy decadence, guests will be plied with drinks and nibbles before being transported to a place far far away with “Stories To Make You Dream” (3rd and 17th June) and “Tales of Love and Longing” (22nd and 29th July). A dresscode of pyjamas, nighties and dressing gowns will be rigorously enforced, and we are suggesting guests bring along a small cushion, a teddy bear and anything else that makes them feel warm and cosy. Nanny and Matron may be brought too (but you will have to pay for them as well…). Complimentary hankies will be provided should guests be moved to tears.

40 WiNKS is developing these fabulous nights in collaboration with Spoken Ink, the online audio website which is breathing fresh life into the short stories of world class authors with readings by actors such as Helena Bonham-Carter and Julie Christie. Their downloadable short stories will be available from July.

Each event will include two short stories read by professional actors with musical accompaniment, and will feature authors such as Angela Carter and Ian McEwen.

The events will start at 7.00pm and finish at 10.30. Tickets are just £20, including drinks and delicious nibbles.

4O WiNKS continues to attract a stellar crowd… last week we had the lovely lads from Kasabian shooting a wonderful Alice in Wonderland cover here for NME (due out next week). The boys from Leicester were a total delight, and have a new album coming out on the 8th of June called West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, so make sure you bag a copy!!
