Hitting the bar in Stockholm, an appointment with Success, celebrating Ian Webster, and Hong Kong evenings.

Sore heads in stockholm

Pop-up nightclub Le Baron ensured Stockholm Fashion Week started with a hangover - the British contingent enjoyed a drink or three. After their show, designers Natalia Altewai (bottom, middle) and Randa Saome of womenswear brand Altewaisaome met Drapers’ Graeme Moran.

Brands showing at the inaugural edition of Hong Kong trade show The Hub were treated to almost a week of evening activities. Highlights included shirt label Pye’s fashion-cum-art installation hosted by its chief executive Dee Poon, daughter of Harvey Nichols owner Dickson Poon, and Marjorie Yang, boss of supplier Esquel. Drapers saved its last reserves for the champagne-fuelled Made in Paradise after-party, held at bar Salon 10, where Drapers Catherine Neilan joined Chris Amoroso from Orlebar Brown and friend, and Christopher Modoo from Chester Barrie.

Fond memories of Ian Webster were shared in Carlisle last Friday at a celebration of the life of the footwear agent, who died last month aged 51. ‘Webbo the Shoe Man’ will be much missed by those who knew him from a career that included Mambo, Speedo, Reebok, Base London, Swear, Rocket Dog and trade show Eye2Eye. Guests included David Spencer of Schuh, Darren Brown of Overland Shoes and Hudson’s Ian Cartwright, and agent Andrew Ellard with wife Michele and Amazon’s Jessica Brown.
