John and Yoko attend press launch of Apple Tailoring

12.00pm, Wednesday 22 May 1968 (45 years ago)

Three days after their relationship began, John Lennon and Yoko Ono appeared in public for the first time, for the lunchtime launch party and press conference for Apple Tailoring (Civil and Theatrical), the second boutique from Apple Corps.

It took place at Club Dell’Aretusa, at 107 King’s Road, Chelsea, London. Also present at the launch were George Harrison and his wife Pattie, and a number of other celebrities.

We’re still involved in a hectic recording scene at the moment, although I’ve spent this week at the office. All that paperwork!

After the party Lennon and Ono walked the short distance to the new Apple Tailoring shop, at 161 King’s Road, for the benefit of photographers. The boutique opened the following day.
