2017 = HOUSE & GARDEN FEATURE + NEW WESBITE





2017 was pretty good for A-Gent of Style. Getting the Designer Profile feature in the December issue of House & Garden was the highlight of the year and a wonderful Christmas present for which I am extremely grateful. Launching the website fabricebana.com was also a milestone.

January 2018 has already got a few exciting projects in the pipeline.
The best has yet to come…Let’s trust the magic of beginnings!












THE TWINKLE of CHRISTMAS at the DESIGN CENTRE, CHELSEA HARBOUR

 You’d have to be a Scrooge not to like a Twinkle.

It is the season to be merry, so a fortnight ago, in between work commitments and a design bloggers-only event hosted by Linley later on that evening,
A-Gent of Style made his way to his ‘home from home’, the much cherished Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour for its annual Twinkle of Christmas, now in its fifth year, to celebrate the festive season in a jolly, glamourous and convivial atmosphere

Attended by a plethora of designers, taste makers, and representatives from the design centre’s 102 showrooms, Claire German, Managing Director of the DCCH, and her team invited their guests to the capital’s legendary creative and commercial hub of interior design to enjoy festive fizz, hot chocolate, doughnuts, star treats and marshmallows from a snow wall amongst ethereal stilt-walkers whilst smooth harmonies from the Rat Pack provided seasonal good cheer beneath a constellation of twinkling lights.

Despite its magical scintillation and sparkle, the glamorous event wouldn’t have been truly starry without the much-anticipated attendance of its surprise celebrity. This year’s guest of honour (and best well-kept secret) was Darcey Bussell, principal dancer, judge of BCC’s Strictly Come Dancing and now national darling, who, ahem, swanned in the middle dome to be welcomed onto the stage by students from her old school, Royal Ballet School. With the support of a huge crowd, La Bussell switched on the lights and the spectacular glass domes the design centre were illuminated by a galaxy of glowing stars, a sight to behold.

‘It’s such an inspirational place to come to,’ said Darcey. ‘I have always been a big fan of the creative world, and I’m very happy to add to this festive occasion’.

With all of these perfect ingredients thrown into the mix, The Twinkle of Christmas has now become without a doubt an unmissable annual tradition and a firm fixture in London’s design calendar.

  Twinkle, twinkle…

FROSTY FAIR & THE CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS at FORTNUM & MASON

The competition is rife throughout the year amongst the leading department stores to dazzle, surprise and entice us, material consumerists, with their extraordinary and lavish displays. And over the festive period, the pressure is considerably heightened and the stakes even higher.

As per his habit on the first weekend of December, A-Gent of Style made the special trip to see what spectacle Fortnum & Mason had to unravel this Christmas. And they didn’t disappoint once again.

As by magic, the windows at the quintessentially British store  have been transformed into enchanting scenes of London covered in frost and snow, replete with their own gifts and decorations. The theme this year takes its inspiration from the famous River Thames Frost Fairs which hosted markets and carnivals on the frozen water between the 17th and 19th century during the freezing cold winters of Britain’s Little Ice Age.

And A-Gent of Style’s Christmas gift list is now officially open…
