Shopa – fashion’s new style i-con

MODEL-TURNED-SINGER Pixie Geldof returned to the London party scene to celebrate the launch of new social shopping site, Shopa at the Ham Yard Hotel in London.

The Launch Of Shopa

Shopa is a next-generation social shopping site that enables online customers to quickly discover the hottest and most talked about products through other like-minded customers’ social recommendations.

Joined by friend, model and musician Lou Hayter, Geldof, the 24-year-old daughter of Boomtown Rats’ singer Bob danced behind the decks, whilst providing the eclectic soundtrack to a night of socialising and shopping at the new Piccadilly hotel. If her music choices are anything to go by, her new record set to be released on Stranger Records, is likely to be more 90s-fused pop than rock.

Pixie Geldof continued her London Fashion Week front row chic fashion style, pairing a leopard print jacket with a contrasting fur collar over a ‘1970’ slogan jumper by Bella Freud and leather skirt.

Pixie was joined by Made in Chelsea star and Pocket London co-founder Louise Thompson and her boyfriend Alik Alfus. The couple took a united stand for the first time in public since Alik’s Twitter hack.

Louise showed that love was definitely still in the air and, on made sure everyone knew by teaming up an all-white ensemble, with love heart shoes and a striking black and white coat with a large fluffy section at the bottom. Louise’s label Pocket London is one of the many brands featured on shopa.com.

Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger also attended the event and showed off her slender figure following a strict workout regime. Lauren looked great in a pair of slim-fit rubber trousers, teamed with a green crossover blouse.

UK shopping habits have become increasingly influenced by our use of social media, with over three quarters (79%) of fashion savvy 18 – 34 year olds admitting to making purchases based on social recommendations, Shopa could just be the answer to these social-stylistas’ prayers.

Shopa mirrors the fun and excitement of shopping with friends on the high street, whilst bringing all of your favourite items and brands from around the world right into your hands via our website and app.”
