If anyone was watching Loose Women this Friday then you will have seen the incredible Whoopi Goldberg receiving her London Landmarks Converse live on air! The Loose Women team got in contact with me to get a surprise gift organised for Whoopi and they requested a London theme with the Loose Women logo, and for Whoopi's name to be included somewhere on the Converse.

If you start to google ‘business plans’, ‘should I start my own business’, ‘is starting a business risky’, you are faced with page upon page of advice and tips, lists and statistics; ...Read More

There is a slight change to the Monowhite Low top style of Converse. Previously the pairs were entirely white and this is the style featured in the majority of images across the website and social media platforms. In the past few days the stock arriving has been the updated new style which has a dark grey eyelet colour as pictured below. These now match the Monowhite High tops which have always had the dark eyelets. The new stock is filtering through based on the popularity of the shoe size (5,6 and 7 will be the first to switch). So for the ...Read More
