It’s taken me the best part of ten seasons to get my head around the fact that hitting the after parties like a bat out of hell – and by hell I mean that holiday to Zante/Ibiza/Cabo you and your pals took after finals – is not the way to have a chic and successful fashion week. But still, despite my newfound maturity there’s always the odd occasion when an extra nightcap at Soho House, or extended dance off at some random bash the other side of town gets too tempting. This is an especially stupid idea if you spent the previous night sleeping, or rather failing to sleep, on a red eye after an intense week of shows, meetings and evening activities in New York. The Soho House cocktail route was the one I took after the Bond Street cocktail soirées that followed the Sass & Bide show and unsurprisingly, all plans to kick off LFW AW15 day 2 with a health giving run in the park followed by a couple of hours work fell miserably by the wayside. I instead found myself leaping out of bed in a blinded-by-jet-lag panic, grabbing a pair of sunglasses and only just, I mean just, making my first show… Stupid, stupid, stupid.
