Fascinatingly Fitzrovia finds fashion! Simple but true. The history is colourful, patterned and can be displayed in many styles. I am treated to a coffee and a croissant on the benches of the Scandinavian Kitchen on Great Titchfield Street, next door to his showroom. John is accompanied by his terrier Roxy who wanders back and forth searchingly until distracted by an attractive bitch far more interesting than our chatter. John Zack has earned his living in this special location for over 40 years, remarkable in so many ways but first and foremost because there are so few people who can claim to have spent the majority of their working life here. He reveals as we enter the cavern of his world, a treasure chest of his Fitzrovia experiences which at times has me in stitches!
