New dragon Kelly guest edits anniversary issue of iconic London magazine

Posted on

To celebrate 30 years of The Hill magazine, award-winning interior designer, and new BBC dragon, Kelly Hoppen MBE, has guest edited the July issue.

Kelly, who lives and works in W11, has dedicated the latest issue of the Archant London magazine to her vibrant, eclectic neighbours. In the issue she interviews her pick of the best local retailers as well as recommending her favourite Notting Hill hotspots.

Kelly, who is soon to appear as a new dragon on BBC1’s Dragon’s Den said: “I loved being part of such an important issue in the history of the magazine. The Hill has long being a part of my local life so I feel honoured to take part. I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I enjoyed editing this issue.”

Catherine McCabe, Editor of the Hill added: “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Kelly, someone who truly loves and understand what Notting Hill is really about – community, originality and independent business. She’s been involved from the very beginning, and we couldn’t have done it without her.”

Kelly is the first-ever guest editor of the magazine and appears on the cover of the July edition, published on June 13.

The Hill is owned and run by Archant London and forms part of the 14-strong pan-London portfolio of local luxury magazines published monthly in print and online.
