25-year old Marler, who recently held his first show at London Fashion Week as part of Fashion East, says his dream Christmas gift would be a pair of the Manolo Blannik shoes worn by the male models in his show.  A regular at Hoi Polloi, he says: “The afternoon teas are fabulous, especially the cake that looks like a pumpkin with googly eyes.  I’m there most Thursday nights and always have a Fantabulosa [cocktail].”
