(CNN) -- For the rich and the famous, time is the ultimate luxury.

This month on Art of Life, Monita Rajpal takes time out from her news anchoring duties to discover what a Hollywood stylist and a British tailor do in their spare time.

Savile Row by the sea

British tailor Gresham Blake makes suits for the A-list and is moving into ready-to-wear. Art of Life watches him at work in his studios in English seaside town Brighton while making a bespoke suit for British comedian Steve Coogan. Despite his expanding business, Blake managed to secure some holiday time during a recent work trip to the Czech Republic and allowed Monita to come along, too.

Personal shopper

British fashion designer Jenny Packham has dressed some of the world's top movie stars, including Halle Berry and Keira Knightley. Dubbed the "first lady of party-wear" by "Vogue," Packham shows Art of Life her studio in England. Then it is off to New York where she meets up with Patricia Field, the designer and stylist who made her name working on "Sex And The City," and the duo take us on a shopping tour of the Big Apple.

France, the slow way

CNN's Mallika Kapur takes a long, slow, luxurious trip through France on a canal boat, courtesy of the Orient Express. Onboard the canal is a Michelin-starred chef to cater for every culinary need and, while winding their way through the wine regions, passengers get a taste of the finest French wines on offer.
