Our edition this month, in homage to the famous documentary film The September Issue, is dedicated to all things sartorial. The main feature introduces Belgravia’s latest couturier Nevena Nikolova. I had the pleasure of meeting the designer, who is a stalwart champion of craftsmanship and all things British. The Journal also took a tour of the local area with a very stylish couple, Nota Bene Global founders Anthony and Elaine Lassman. The company delivers experiences of the highest calibre, utilising their enviable list of contacts. The Lassmans reveal their favourite places in Belgravia to shop, visit and relax, as well as introducing us to some of the colourful characters and unsung heroes in the area.
Meanwhile, Tom Hardman meets Sue Liberman, a lady who helps to keep the world going round in our little patch of town. Sue reveals the final figure raised by the hugely successful Motcomb Street Party for charity this year. Plus Henry Hopwood-Phillips delves into the medieval past in his review of The Restoration of Rome: Imperial Pretenders & Barbarian Popes by Peter Heather.
