  • Visitor Information

StartThis east London treasure trove has long been a secret weapon of celebrities and fashionistas; Sadie Frost says Start is her favourite spot for shopping. Here you'll find designer threads by established labels including Miu Miu, See by Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Issa, Karen Walker and Philip Lim - along with newer, quirkier labels. Philip Start along with ex-musician wife Brix Smith-Start, founded the original boutique in 2002 and it continues to delight.
