‘Grunge Glamour’ – Rose Joyce Level 2 Fashion Student

Rose Joyce, Level 2 Fashion Student ‘Grunge Glamour’ collection: My muse was a modern-day gothic heroine; I was inspired by the drama of Wuthering heights, nipped in jackets and billowing skirts, wild elegance. I wanted to contrast glamour with an androgynous edge, structure with fluidity, using a mix of traditional English tweeds, leather, metallics, and chiffon fabrics.

Room for Tea – affordable accommodation in London

Room for Tea is a new kind of home-sharing network. It connect guests in need of short-term, affordable accommodation in London with hosts who have spare capacity in their clean, comfortable homes.

It’s motivation is to help aspiring interns and apprentices access affordable accommodation in London during their work their dream career.

But that’s not all! It also believe’s that if a host can easily find reliable, friendly and courteous guests to welcome into their homes without long-term commitment, they might have: a new friend in the making, a very grateful guest who is willing to help out around the house, and more disposable income to spend on the finer things in life; be that treating the grand-children, fine dining or just keeping the heating on for an extra hour or two.

If you are considering an internship in London why don’t you see if[@roomfortea] can help you.
