Well I couldn’t exactly do New York and not do London, could I!? Since I’ve been back a lot of people have asked my how different fashion week is in the two cities. It’s impossible to say exactly but I reckon that NYFW is more what you (or at least I) imagined fashion week to be like as a 14 year old dreaming of growing up to be Editor of Vogue. Glamourous and in-your-face with formidable black clad PRs, impossibly well-dressed women and flashing cameras every way you turn. It’s London Fashion Week, times ten. Let me put it this way, we had to show ID to enter the Alexander Wang venue, a demand us Brits would never dream of placing upon invitees. While New York did in some ways seem like the ultimate in fashion week fabulousness, returning home reminded me that London offers up its’ fare share of mega brands, international industry elite and sartorial spectacle too. Not to mention our stellar independent designer contingent (two words: Christopher Kane) which, quite frankly, is unsurpassed. But enough about that, here are a few of my favourite moments from this seasons shows, FROWS and of course, parties…
