Not only did I open the shop just before Christmas but went for a lovely evening at Highgrove, where I was lucky enough to meet Prince Charles….. he was totally charming ( am I allowed to say that!!) we ended up talking about tweed deckchairs….!
Into the New Year , 2013 is going to be full and brimming over for GiliNix, with the shop, website and of course a limited number of shows.
