Jade Jagger opened her first restaurant, Secret Garden, in Turkey this week.
The designer has turned her hand to restaurant interiors for the first time with the outdoor eating area, part of recently reopened Halikarnas nightclub - which has just undergone a multi-million pound renovation - in Bodrum.
She said: "I learnt to cook at a really early age, and good food and great flavours are hugely important to me. My own favourite flavours are quite Asian based especially as I live part of the year in India and I adore fish and seafood and of course love French cooking. The Secret Garden's chef Nicholas Le Toumelin has created a menu that nods to his own French heritage but also reflects the location of the Secret Garden by the sea in Bodrum. I have designed the space so it will appeal to a sophisticated diner."
Jade first came to Turkey with her parents, The Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger and Bianca Jagger, when she was six-years-old and says it has always been a special place for her.
She added: "I have always loved this part of Turkey and have many happy memories holidaying here over the years."
Jade and her new husband, Adrian Fillary, also recently completed their honeymoon with a week cruising along the coast of the Turkish Riviera.
The opening party at the restaurant and nightclub - owned by businessman Suleyman Demir - saw a performance by dance pop act The Cuban Brothers, followed by a DJ set from the Jade Jagger Jezebel Soundsystem, as well as a number of dance performances from around the world.
Jade added: "We are aiming to make Halikarnas a 24-hour daytime and night time experience and therefore the idea of a really good restaurant at a nightclub makes perfect sense. Next year we will be developing a day time yacht jetty and beach club as part of Halikarnas."
Acts performing at Halikarnas this season include Paul Oakenfold, Boy George and David Morales.
