Beulah London Relaunch Flagship Belgravia Store

Luxury British fashion brand, Beulah London, have expanded their flagship store; reopening at a new, larger site on Belgravia’s Elizabeth Street.

The brand concept was born after founders Natasha Rufus Isaacs and Lavinia Brennan spent time working in the slums of Delhi, teaching English and sewing to vulnerable girls and women who had been forced into prostitution. Encountering victims of human trafficking first-hand, and witnessing the awful and enduring impact modern day slavery inflicts on innocent lives, the pair returned home committed to improving the lives of the women they had met, and raising awareness of the effects of sex trafficking.

Recognising the power of employment to significantly transform lives, Brennan and Rufus Isaacs created an ethical fashion label; dedicated to supporting vulnerable women through employment.

Beulah endeavours to improve the lives of victims by offering them an alternative, sustainable livelihood. Additionally, a portion of every garment sold contributes to funding The Beulah Trust; a charitable foundation which provides grants to initiatives that create sustainable livelihoods for victims of trafficking abuse, by teaching them skills which allow them the opportunity to find work, generate an income, and live self-sufficiently.

The new Elizabeth Street store was designed in collaboration with Rebecca Hughes interiors; featuring hand-painted murals and furnishings decorated with Beulah’s signature charity prints, reflecting the latest collection.

Five new tenants sign up to join Albert Dock; the vibrant heart of Liverpool’s historic waterfront

Aberdeen Standard Investments, in partnership with Bruce Gillingham Pollard and Mason Owen, have secured five new leases as part of the regeneration of Liverpool’s iconic Albert Dock.

Popular local independent deli and tapas restaurant, Lunya Lita, will be occupying one of the units, alongside London favourite, Rosa’s Thai; marking the brand’s first venture outside of the capital, the new site will feature two floors of seating and an open theatre kitchen.

In addition to the new restaurants, Liverpool-based independent shop, Leather Satchel Co, will become Hanshaw’s Leather Workshop; transforming into a unique experiential offer providing bespoke leather craft workshops.

Also joining the development will be major leisure attraction, Escape Room, “an interactive and intuitive real-life escape game”, and Made in Liverpool TV, who will be relocating their city headquarters to a new office suite on The Colonnades side of the Dock.

The Jones Family Project to open at Eccleston Yards

The Jones Family Project; a modern, independently owned steak restaurant & cocktail bar, is set to open its second site in Belgravia’s Eccleston Yards, following the vast success of its Shoreditch flagship.

Established by a group of close friends, the members of the ‘Jones Family’ have created their brand around a shared passion for food, drink and spending quality time with friends and family.

The Jones Family Project prides itself on quality ingredients, and on fastidious local sourcing of all the products used in the bar and restaurant, for example, the majority of the meat comes from the The Ginger Pig butchers; a British butchery raising livestock in the Vale of Pickering and the North York Moors.

The Jones Family Project’s independence and character is sure to significantly add to the diverse and creative personality of the Eccleston Yards development, alongside other emerging names such as bespoke catering company, Tart London, and high-end menswear tailoring label, Tailor Made.
