Fashion: Get into costume
precious it ain't, but that doesn't make us any less dazzled by the costume jewellery of Mawi, the Indian-born designer whose decadent, vintage-inspired baubles have ornamented the outfits of everyone from Rihanna to Sam Cam. So hurrah for this week's launch of the first Mawi flagship store in London's East End, where you can feast your eyes on the new spring/summer collections, from the edibly minded Candy Luxe to the Indian-temple-inspired Devotion, as well as classic and one-off baubles. 11 Calvert Street, London EC2, from Friday; mawi.co.uk
