55 Pages Magazine Signing at Rokit

Pandemonia and Snowy were feeling world weary, after returning to London afer their whistle stop trip to Baku, Azerbaijan. They both perked up at the prospect of joining the 55 Factory team at Rokit vintage store Covent Garden, to celebrate 55 Pages Issue 2 magazine launch, for magazine signing and press interviews. After a quick whiz around the store, Pandemonia and Snowy, seated themselves, for the onslaught.
Then the fun began, firstly with Lupe Castro. Lupe took time off her motorbike excursions around the world, to grab a tete a tete with P on what single most import item would Pandemonia take on back of motorbike. Snowy-was P reply in a side car.
Next up to join P&S was Aimee Kitsan. Aimee, who Snowy took a shine to, with her top knot hair do and her softly spoken voice. After quick word with P and personal signed copy of 55 Pages, A made way for another eager beaver.
This was Jordan Porteous. Jordan went for it big time when interviewing Pandemonia for theRokit vintage Blog, armed with mobile phone, with stored questions keyed in and good old pen and paper to take down the replies. This made P smile.
Then Carlo Riccardi, a booker from First Models Management, jumped the queue, to get his signed copy and picture. A tactic his boss Gareth Roberts, would have approved of, seeing his team member getting in fast.
Taking it all in, unfazed, was the sophisticated Sophie Eggleton interviewer. Sophie moved in quickly, with her mike and cute camera women. After grilling Pandemonia in the nicest possible way, they grabbed their copies of the magazine and were off.
Only to be replaced by Michela Tindera, journalist from Verge Magazine. And poor Snowy was on the verge, not able to join in the activities and just sit quietly & observe.
Taking a her turn next, was the glamorous Lisa Porter Dixon make up artist to the stars and her pal Clare Deen of Makemeupkia. This dynamic duo squeezed themselves passed" PR and grabbed a 2 min chat with Pandemonia, giving tips on make up and commenting on what fabulous complication P has. "I drink lots of water every day" said P.
People had to make way for Peu Cheung, with her huge Vivienne Westwood bag. Seated Peu was utterly charming, so much so Pademonia and Snowy, wanted to chin wag with her endlessly about her role at Essential Music.
It was then party gang invasion, by the 55 Pages posse Cristopher George, Nick Thompson and Lois Waller PR Director of the event. All were looking pleased as punch, as they should be, at throwing a wicked party and also another perk, where their readers got discount shopping tonight, thrown in for good measure. 55 Pandemonia and Snowy did final walk trough and were off home to get some well deceived shut eye. And dream about next gathering.
