What Katie Did in Fabulous Magazine

NOTW's Fabulous magazine featured some of our lingerie in a shoot devoted to shoes yesterday. The first picture shows our Sophia corset in peach, with peach ballet knickers (if you'd like the ballet knickers order them quickly as we're going to have a little delay before the next shipment arrives. The second shows our Maitresse bullet bra. Thank you Fabulous!

What Katie Did boutique update

We've been very busy revamping our London boutique this week and we're on schedule to re-open on Monday 1st March as planned. This week has been rather messy, knocking down walls and the like, so it was a good job our decorators Miss Miranda and Persia came suitably dressed for the job in their clean white overalls. It didn't take long for photographer Tony Nylons to suggest that perhaps they didn't want to get paint on their clean white overalls and quickly came up with a solution. These kind of things only happen at What Katie Did!

The hole in the wall: we've knocked a hole into the boutique next door (with permission!) which will give us more room. The new area will be used as a big, luxurious, dressing room.

Miss Miranda checks the door is level.

Persia starts work on our naughty wall which will be covered with images from Exotique magazine.

If you're free on the afternoon of Sunday 7th March between 2pm and 4pm why not come down to the boutique for the launch party of Peek magazine?

What Katie Did - in the press

Yesterday our Maitresse Bullet Bra was modelled by glamour model Nicola T in Celebs on Sunday magazine (The Sunday Mirror).

Whilst our Glamour Girdle is featured in Feb/March's Wonderland magazine.

Some of you might also have noticed our Josephine cheetah print lingerie on ITV's This Morning on Friday 12th February. For those of you with a saucier outlook on life check out Skin Two's review of our lingerie book (warning, their site is not work friendly!)

What Katie Did boutique revamp

It's been nearly a month since I last posted, but as usual, it's not that we've been lazy! I can't tell you everything that we've been up to (don't worry, you won't have to wait long to find out) but can let you know of our most immediate plans: our London boutique revamp.

The What Katie Did boutique can only be described as rather bijous, which means that at busy times it's not only our girdles that feel snug! We really do love Portobello and wouldn't dream of moving so have managed to persuade our landlords to let us knock down that wall between our boutique and next door. The result will give us more space which we'll divide into a dressing area and a little press office. The dressing area will be of most interest to you as you'll be able to book it in advance if you know you're going to need a lengthy fitting session, whilst your boyfriend can relax with a cup of coffee and the latest issue of Peek magazine away from the bustle of the main boutique. We're also taking the opportunity to revamp our existing boutique, giving it a more glamorous and opulent feel. Staff-wise things are also changing: our current manageress, Nicola, is leaving to concentrate on her make up career (she just done her first cover for Front magazine - out next month - and is a regular at LFW). Vicky (Nicola's ex boss!) is going to take over as manageress: you might have already met her as she's already done a few Saturdays for us.
Meanwhile Mam'zelle Maz will be joining Clare in what must surely be the most glamorous press team in London.

Unfortunately we don't have a magic wand and we will have to close for two weeks for the work to take place. We'll be closing at 6pm on Saturday 13th February, re-opening on Monday 1st March.

Make a note in your diary to keep Sunday 7th March clear. That's the launch date for Peek magazine, a new magazine devoted to stockings, fun and frolics! Join us at our boutique between 2 and 4pm to meet the Peek team and have a bit of a knees up!
