There’s one name to turn to for flirty, flattering and gorgeous dresses. Coco Fennell’s frocks can be found on Rihanna, Rita and Paloma, and that’s just for starters. Her stomping ground? East, of course. Here’s how she would spend 24 hours in Hackney.
Walking along the canal, which is my route to work, I pass loads of fun places that you might not normally spot - lots of little cafés and bars. Great for exploring on the weekend.
Next up, there is nowhere quite like the Dalston Curve Garden - it is a community garden, and open til 10pm in the summer. It has great music, and great pizza!
For a spot of shopping, try the Jealous Gallery on Curtain Road in Shoreditch. They have awesome prints, too. It’s great for present shopping.
A great friend of mine from school set up Diddy’s on Mare Street. In the day it is a great cafe with delicious food, and at night it is a really fun bar. Everyone is friendly - and it’s full of hotties!
If you’re looking for a date spot go to The Last Tuesday Society. The bar is full of mad junk, and you’ll never be stuck for conversation as there is a museum of curiosities downstairs.

I also love The Bridge - a heavenly bar on Kingsland Road, full of Americana memorabilia and neon lights, so it is my absolute dream. I shot a lookbook there - it’s the best.
If you feel like sushi and cocktails (which I often do) then it has to be Brilliant Corners on Kingsland Road in Dalston.
And I couldn’t end a night without a visit to Farr’s - a fun bar/pub with great interiors - it used to be a dance school.
