Part two of last Thursday night’s fashion party extravaganza took me to the heart of Covent Garden where I had been invited along to celebrate the launch of the new & improved Burberry Brit store. Now any soiree thrown by Burberry was going to attract some pretty high profile guests and I was beyond thrilled to be included amongst the hoards of famous fashion faces parading their stylish selves through the state-of-the-art store.

I arrived at the store to be greeted with freshly poured champagne and the sound of thumping music. Despite my being only an un-fashionable half-hour late, the place was packed. One thing I have always loved about Burberry is the classic, fresh faced loveliness of their models and sure enough all former and current faces of the brand had turned out in force to indulge in an evening of drinking, dancing and multiple photo opp’s.The Burberry Brit launch party was doubtlessly one of the hottest tickets in town with international fashion royalty including Juliana Restoin-Roitfeld in attendance. As far as the eye could see, the enormous and unbelievably stylish store was teeming with beautiful people and industry insiders dressed in Burberry’s new season finest and ready to let their hair down.

All in all, it was a thoroughly British affair with miniscule versions of classic English dishes being served by a bevvy of rather gorgeous waiters. Homegrown beauties and Burberry models Poppy and Cara Delevigne, Lily Donaldson, Edie Campbell and Tali Lennox mingled with stylish singer Ellie Goulding and the man-of-the-moment himself, Christopher Bailey. We were treated to a breathtaking performance by British acoustic band, “Life in Film” and as darkness fell model/DJ Tom Guinness took to the decks and really got us in the party mood.

After getting over the the initial self-consciousness caused by wearing bright pink to an event where everyone else seemed to have gone for effortless understatement, I knocked back multiple glasses of champagne, caught up with familiar faces and generally enjoyed the evening. As we Brits say, a bloody good time was had by all and despite my stiletto induced agony I could happily have continued until the wee hours. Luckily enough this was not an option as whilst Thursday may be THE fashionable night to party, this sadly doesn’t excuse most of us from work the next day.
