Hatty Keane for Jennifer Hope

We got introduced by the superstar lady Hatty Keane by her management team at BGM. After a nice little chat to the team they proposed that Hatty was going on tour with JLS and would we like her to represent Jennifer Hope out on the UK tour. Of course we jumped at the opportunity!

Hatty is an 18 year old singer-songwriter from Manchester UK. She has supported the likes of Olly Murs, Ed Sheeran and Wretch 32 but this was JLS's finally goodbye arena tour so what an incredible tour to be apart of. Before she went on the JLS tour she went around the schools of the UK singing to over 20,000 kids in just 2 weeks in as a project called "Inspire the Kids". Hatty only being 18 years of age and being signed to BGM at just 16, shows what an inspirational individual she can be to the kids of the UK.

We were invited by Hatty and her manager Michael to see her perform at the JLS concert. Hatty was the first act on and had the daunting task of having to get such a large audience on their feet and dancing, but she nailed it! Hatty is an extremely good performer and knows exactly how to interact with the crowd as if she's been doing it for years! Hatty was my favourite support act of the show and she really showed myself and the audience that she is a name we will hear again and again for a long time yet.

Hatty's single Sirens is now out for dowload on iTunes here:  https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/sirens-single/id773501449

Shop Dutty Kensal Rise

When I was studying in Bristol two extraordinary ladies took me on to work with them in their shop, firstly as work experience but then gave me a job! They gave me so much advice and guidance throughout my time in Bristol as a fashion student but also as a friend. If you are Bristol based you will have heard of them, Shop Dutty, run my Louisa Jones and Joh Rindom.

The girls stocked Jennifer Hope straight out of UNI so they saw the potential in me before anyone else did which will always stay with me. ANYWAY enough of the emotional stuff, a few months back the girls opened another Shop Dutty store in London! The store looks incredible and stocks brands such as myself to Kuccia to Duttys own brand. If your around the area of London make sure you check out the new Shop dutty store in Kensal Rise, London. Also Boom Nails are there every Saturday taking appointments so one visited will get you kitted out for your Saturday night!
