Jade Jagger talks to FashionBite

Fashion designer Jade Jagger will be appearing with DJ partner Dan Williams and the Jezebel Sound System at the Gallo Rosé & Beach Blanket Babylon at The Notting Hill Carnival this Sunday.

FashionBite caught up with Jade before the big day to talk about her top tips for London’s largest street festival, along with her favourite travel hotpots and the inspiration behind her fashion designs…

How would you describe your style?
I love to dress up differently every day. I would describe my style as playful.

Who are your favourite designers?
I make a lot of clothes for myself in India, but I also love all the classics- YSL, Lanvin, Chanel and of course a bit of Topshop and Zara.

When did you last have a shopping splurge?
I was in Paris during couture week and bought myself a gorgeous new Lanvin bag and some new shoes – I just can’t help myself in there.

Where do you get your inspiration for your jewellery and fashion designs?
I have a long standing love affair with India. We have a beach house in the north of Goa, which is where I am at my happiest. I work there around two months of the year on my jewellery designs and some of my clothes are embellished and embroidered in India

What’s your next holiday?
I spend my summers in Ibiza and I’m here now.

What is your favourite place to visit?
I love to go to the small beaches up near where I live in San Joan [Ibiza] – I like private coves to go snorkeling.

What’s your idea of the perfect weekend?
There is nothing better to do at the weekend than sleep, cook and watch TV with the family. We are often working on Friday nights doing parties, so saturday and sunday I like to get my PJs on.

What exciting things do Jezebel have planned for the rest of the summer?
We are doing the Gallo Rosé & Beach Blanket Babylon Notting Hill Party on the Sunday of bank holiday weekend. We’ll then be back hosting nights in Ibiza.

What tunes will D.R.W [Dan Williams] be dropping at the Gallo Rosé and Beach Blanket Babylon beach party?
The great thing about Dan’s sets is that they are always unpredictable. He definitely has a couple of signature tracks that he likes to drop but he likes to read the crowd and not play the same stuff each time so your guess is as good as mine.

What’s your favourite Carnival watering hole?
The Pelican on All Saints road will be rocking this year I’m sure. Its right next to my Jade Jagger shop so I can run between the two throughout the day, probably stealing ice from the pub to take to the shop.

Do you have any insider Carnival tips?
Always handy to know people putting parties on in the pubs! Get your wristbands on before carnival finishes at 7 or you’re gonna be queueing!
