In the heart of Notting Hill is the headquarters of Chic&Seek
, an online boutique for preloved designer accessories
. Tara Nash-King has transformed her stylish mews flat into an intimate showroom for her hand-picked collection of designer shoes, handbags and accessories.
The idea is simple; style mavens can pass on their unwanted, yet still desirable designer accessories to Chic&Seek
to sell on for them. Tara is extremely discerning about the quality of the stock, meeting all of the sellers in person and hand-selecting each item. With pieces by Chanel, Charlotte Olympia, Fendi, Miu Miu and Chloe on the site at time of writing, in great condition and at affordable prices, this is surely the most sensible and eco-friendly way to buy and sell high-end designer fashion.
A PERSONAL SERVICE
The site itself is bright, fun and impressive, with excellent photography. Visit Chic&Seek
online to browse through the current stock of fabulous designer shoes, bags and accessories, but bear in mind that the website is really only half of the Chic&Seek
Story. Tara offers a ‘by appointment only’ service at her mews home, so that customers can try before they buy in a relaxed and comfortable environment, away from the hurly-burly of the high street. Clients who are further afield can also view items via Skype.
THE CHIC SEEKER DIARY
regularly organises pop-up events, charity shopping mornings and hen parties - so keep an eye on the site to keep abreast of its busy diary. Check out the Chic Seeker Blog
, full of style tips and features on fashionable people.
