After 10 yeas delivering accross The Pond to clients who ordered online, cult US fashion brand, Johnny Cupcakes has opened its first international store in Foubert’s Place, just off the famous Carnaby Street.

Bringing their quirky collection of t-shirts, jerseys, accessories and badges to the UK for the first time, all with the iconic cupcake logo. The hip store is definitely worth a visit to experience the amazing interior, designed to look like a retro bakery complete with refrigerators and bakery cases, punctuated by mesmerising marble runs and vintage cookware.

Check out the limited edition London collection, designed exclusively for the London store, and inspired by London icons, including Johnny’s own interpretation of the London Underground logo. From humble beginnings in the back of a rusty old car, Johnny Cupcakes has become an underground success story with a die-hard fan base. The brand’s t-shirts have fast become collectibles, and many sell out as soon as they go on sale.


After the roaring success of the first Red Network event in London, Red Magazine is responding to the  demand by bringing the Red Network to Manchester.

The event is all about starting your own business, with brilliant speakers Jo Malone, Sarah Curran from and Joanne Mathews from Ten Pilates all chatting to Red’s editor-in-chief Sam Baker about their own experiences of starting a business.
The Manchester Red Network event will be on 24th March from 6.30 – 8.30 at the Lowry Hotel and we would love you to join us. So, if you are interested in how to start a business and want some insight from the most successful women out there, then book now as tickets are selling out fast.
Red Network events have limited places – we want them to be evenings where you’ll meet other women, chat and share inspirations over a glass of champagne and they are still offering a special introductory ticket price of £25, including champagne and canapes.
