As summer comes to an end and the world returns back to work (or school), see what's trending this month in London in addition to Fashion Week.
Located in one of London's chicest neighborhoods, Dr Wassim Taktouk 's new clinic is discreetly tucked away behind all the glitzy designer shops on Sloane Street, and is stylishly designed and decorated to give customers an at-home, at-ease feel. After having trained at Bartholomew's and The Royal Hospital Medical School, Dr Wassim spent 10 years of his career in Urgent Care before deciding to follow his passion and specialize in aesthetic medicine. An array of services are offered at Dr Wassim's clinic, including anti-wrinkle treatment, facial contouring, PRP, HIFU and MyEllevate™ non surgical facelift. This month, Profhilo injections are particularly popular amongst Dr Wassim's patients who want to give their skin a boost following a summer in the sun. As the first BDDE-free stabilized injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity, Profhilo treatment increases production of endogenous HA and elastin giving the skin a more youthful look, and can be used on the face, necks, hands, knees, elbows and decollete.

Want to treat yourself for the day? Look no further than Beauty Club London , the newest hair & beauty attraction situated at the buzzing Oxford Circus. Cofounders Moe Harb and Louise Bailey made the bold move to take the expansive space in the height of the pandemic in July 2020, and has since made it the place to see and be seen at with the team's exquisite expertise in hairdressing completed with vibrant interior. Paint Nails London , a leading nail art salon, is also located within Beauty Club London's alluring treatment floor, so you can truly have that much-deserved, head-to-toe pampering session — all whilst enjoying a healthy ginger shot or chic cocktail from the Club's fully-equipped bar.
If there is one business that notably thrived despite having gone through the pandemic, it's Sellier Knightsbridge , currently the most prestigious luxury resale platform in London. Founded by Hanushka Toni and her mother Dina Ibrahimova, Sellier had to adapt quickly following the closure of its London-based brick-and-mortar boutique due to pandemic restrictions. The mother and daughter duo swiftly launched an online platform and really focused on displaying their offerings in a fun yet educational way to their loyal social following — now each of their Instagram stories is viewed up to 25,000 times. The pivot in strategy has seen Sellier become one of the key players in the secondary market, widening their reach to shoppers around the world. The business grew exponentially since then, with around 70% of new stock that goes on Instagram sells the same day and is said to be on track to turn over £5-7 million in the next 12 months.
A best-kept secret for anyone who wants to get their hands on a Birkin in pristine condition quickly, Sellier is the No 1 re-seller of Hermès in the UK and sell 8-15 bags from the brand a week via Instagram. Around 90% of Hermès bags they take on sell within 3 days, so make sure you are quick to click when spotting something your heart desires.

The pandemic has pushed sustainability to the forefront of the fashion industry like never before, and consumers are becoming more and more conscious when it comes to shopping, with influencing voices in the industry actively encouraging consumers making more use of the items they already own. Founded in 2017, The Restory has provided trusted aftercare services for luxury fashion globally. The tech-enabled service has elevated aftercare to align it with the luxury buying experience and the current movement on environmentally friendly dressing.
Having extended its portfolio of services on August 2 to include aftercare for the wardrobe, the Restory further launched a unique, exclusive worldwide partnership with Manolo Blahnik on September 6. The service, named "Mend My Manolos" and powered by The Restory, will provide clients access to specialized post-purchase repair services directly through the Manolo Blahnik website and all three UK boutiques. The offer includes standard services such as re-soling or re-heeling right through to restoration and dyeing, empowering clients to extend the longevity of the promise that comes with an investment piece.
Vanessa Jacobs , founder & CEO of The Restory, comments: "We started The Restory to make aftercare fun and stylish and as much a part of the fashion experience as buying to begin with. We have spent four years cracking the complexity of aftercare, partnering with some of the UK's leading luxury retailers to help customers fall in love again and again with their investment pieces."
You can now get a quote for The Restory's aftercare/mending services using their online portal at www.the-restory.com and www.manoloblahnik.com or visit one of the sites at Harrods, Selfridges, or Harvey Nichols.

Before trying the range of nut butters from Pip & Nut , I never knew that there were such a variety of peanuts and almonds that differ in both flavor and health benefits. The chic and product-conscious brand thrives on finding the best nuts out there — like carefully selected Argentinian hi-oleic peanuts and just four types (out of 50+) of Californian almonds — to make their superb nut butters. As a business Pip & Nut takes their responsibility to look after the people and planet very seriously. It was proudly certified as a B-Corp in 2019, which is a verified certification for companies using business as a force for good. This autumn, make sure to keep a jar or two of Pip & Nut's vegan-friendly and gluten free nut butters in the cupboard, for your guilt-free snack hour.
If summer is made for frolicking by the beach, fall is definitely made for cuddling by the fire. This September, the sexual wellness brand Quanna seeking to break the stigma attached to sensuality and intimate care with thoughtfully packaged, sex positive, and gynaecologist backed premium grade products has just launched the UK's first CBD powered lubricant, Oomf .
So why add CBD to lubricant? Cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is the second most prominent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Studies have shown a plethora of sexual wellness benefits with addition of CBD to lubricant, such as heightened arousal particularly for women, enhanced sensitivity and pleasure, and soothing immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects to alleviate any pain during sex.
Oomf is available from www.byquanna.com or at selected retailers.
