Mulberry hosts Tim Walker “Storyteller” Private View

Mulberry

As anyone who follows me on twitter, instagram or Facebook will probably know and be thoroughly sick of hearing about, on Wednesday evening I was lucky enough to attend the private view of Tim Walker’s “Storyteller” exhibition. Now I’ve been to a fair few parties in my time but this particular event was easily one of the most fabulous I have ever attended. Of course given that it was hosted by Mulberry and the venue was Somerset House I rather suspected it would be.

Roger Vivier ‘Prismick’ Exhibition & Cocktail Party

Roger Vivier

As I was extremely happy to learn recently, it is in fact London Cocktail Week! I’m not sure how long this fabulous seven day celebration of mixed drinks has been going, or more importantly why this is the first I’ve heard of it, but it’s certainly something I intend to make the most of in future. And what better was to pay homage to Carrie Bradshaw, James Bond and all those other cocktail sipping icons than by raising a glass (or three) at an elegant soiree hosted by Parisian footwear extraordinaire, Roger Vivier?

Laura Bailey for Radley Launch Party

Laura Bailey

This summer I had the pleasure of interviewing Laura Bailey at the launch of Radley’s pop-up store at Westfield, Stratford. At the time, I was both happy and more than a little jealous to learn that besides being gorgeous and clever, Laura was utterly lovely to boot. Well, it turns out that the multi-talented model, writer, Vogue blogger and mother is also a dab hand at designing handbags.

WGSN Global Fashion Awards Shortlist Party

As you’ve no doubt gathered by now, or experienced for yourself, the fashion industry will leap at any excuse for a party. But as cause célèbres go, I’d say that the announcement of the WGSN Global Fashion Awards’ shortlisted nominees is a pretty good one.

WGSN Global Fashion Awards

Last Wednesday the London fash pack gathered at the W Hotel to drink, mingle and most importantly, find out who made the cut this year. Despite many people being fresh off the Eurostar from Paris, there was a stellar turnout of industry big hitters including former British Fashion Council Chairman Harold Tillman, Forward PR & The Industry Managing Director Courtney Blackman and renowned Brit designer and Owner/Director of bespoke tailors Norton & Sons of Saville Row, Patrick Grant. Having dashed over from 2nd year welcome drinks at University (AKA warmish wine out of plastic cups in a classroom, enjoyable but not exactly the height of glamour) plunging into the midst of this kind of champagne fuelled swank-tastic soiree was a major change of pace but, unsurprisingly, it didn’t take me long to get into the swing of it.

Champagne & Shopping with Nanette Lepore

Nanette Lepore

There isn’t a great deal to write about this particular event. Not in that it wasn’t fabulous, it was. But Nanette Lepore promised us champagne and shopping, and that is precisely what she delivered. Oh, and of course the chance to have a good rifle through her DIVINE resort 2013 collection, resulting in many a drunken purchase or three.
