For the first time in over 70 years, the hallowed turf of Hurlingham Park will thunder with the hooves of high-class polo ponies. Players from all over the world will battle each other in a furious display of horsemanship and polo strategy to win the ultimate polo prize - The World Polo Series.
Between the 5th-6th June 2009, the inaugural tournament of The World Polo Series will take place in Fulham, Central London.
Shall enjoy trading at this event, more my kind of people...might even wear me Ralphie!
ellesse is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the design competition CREATE TENNIS ART. Uber cool illustrator and typographer Si Scott designed the flyer and will be part of the jury; the iconic Italian sportswear brand has also collaborated with textile print superstar Kate Gibb and Greek animation genius Babis Alexiadis (check his animation here http://vimeo.com/4150738). Two great inspirations to enter the competition!
The winning designs will feature on http://www.ellesse.com/50thAnniversary/ and will be showed during the ellesse 50th anniversary party in Rome in July 2009. Eva will attend the event in Rome as part of her prize and also receive £1,500 and a fully paid 3 month design-based work placement.
You too could be part of the ellesse 50th anniversary celebrations, win €4,500 and be sent to the ellesse 50th anniversary event where your work will be on display. An opportunity you shouldn’t miss...
All you have to do is create a piece of art or design to commemorate the ellesse 50th anniversary inspired by the brand’s Italian heritage and sporting roots in tennis. The categories for the competition range from fashion and textiles, right through to fine art, sculpture, street art, graphics and digital. Deadline is May 10th and all the details and application form can be found on http://www.ellesse.com/50thAnniversary/
Having spent the last 10 years in the fashion game as co-owner of Drooghi in 2007 I decided that I needed a change in vocation. After clapping eyes on and falling in love with the Citroen H van I decided that what I was to do would be centred around owning one. A passion for coffee made the option as to what to sell from it an easy one. So after six months of waiting for the work to be carried out on restoration and refurbishment, Cwtch Coffee was born. Cwtch is a Welsh word that literally translated means a cuddle or a hug. Cwtch Coffee...a cuddle in a cup!
