Naomi Parry - Author of 'Amy Winehouse: Beyond Black'

Naomi Parry is the author of 'Amy Winehouse: Beyond Black' (Thames & Hudson), a new publication and definitive story of Amy's life and career told through key photographs, never-before-seen memorabilia and recollections collated by Amy's stylist and close friend.

DJ Bioux

A feature on the nightlife scene of London for two decades – from curating entertainment at Playboy and The London Hippodrome to directing and producing Boom & Bang Circus, DJ Bioux has been djing vinyl-only sets in London, Berlin, Paris and Sydney and for a time running the Camden record shop King Disc. He also co-created the event Snakehips with Amy Winehouse.

Charles Moriarty - Photographer of 'Before Frank'

'Before Frank' is an intimate portrait and tribute to Amy Winehouse. Featuring over 50 photographs by Charles Moriarty, the publication celebrates a young artist on the cusp of fame. The photos were taken before Amy released her debut album, giving an early glimpse of the girl who would captivate the world.

Love From Hetty & Dave

Covetable hand-stitched vegan leather jewellery and accessories label ’Love From Hetty & Dave’ was created by Zoe Larkins in 2001. Inspired by South American folk art, vintage design and 1950's kitsch, Zoe's range of handbags, purses, brooches and necklaces became popular in London’s Portobello and Spitalfields markets and soon established a cult following.
