Whistles & O by TANK Cocktail Party

Whistles

Regardless of all good intentions, I ended up attending rather more than two parties during London Fashion Week but the Matches bash on night one and the Whistles & O by TANK’s cocktail party on night three were by far the most fabulous. Having just witnessed the awesomeness that was the Jonathan Saunders show at the Tate Modern, I was in pretty high spirits that Sunday evening. And it was just as well because going home and getting a good night’s sleep wasn’t an option as my most beloved brand had joined forces with one of the coolest fash mags around to host an intimate get-together. I’d been lucky enough to make the cut and there was no way in HELL I was missing it!

Matches London Fashion Week Party

At long, long last I’ve managed to get my final fashion week diary up! Firstly, I apologise for the fact they’re tather more like essays than blog posts, but SO many notable things happened, collections showed and general musings needed to be shared that I struggled to keep them concise. Well, rest assured these next few will be short and sweet, just a few choice words and jealous-making snaps from my favourite fashion week parties. First up, Matches

IDOL Magazine Hosts Issue Launch Party

IDOL Magazine

As you may have gathered by now, fashion parties on Friday nights are an extremely rare occurrence. Other than during fashion week – when weekends and weekdays cease to exist, merging into one, long, exhausting-yet-exhilerating blur of shows, champagne and impractical footwear – industry folk tend to host their celebrations on school nights, usually scuppering all my attempts to get any work done the next day. Well, IDOL Magazine are renowned for doing things a little differently so it’s should have come as no suprise that the independant fashion, music and lifestyle publication chose to celebrate the launch of their issue on the original party night. Given that I was moving house at the crack of dawn on Saturday, my plan was to pop in, say hello, maaaaaybe have one drink and then get myself home to bed. Suffice to say, all good intentions went straight out the window approximately 2 minutes after I arrived.

Diesel host FRIENDS gig and party

Diesel

I have to say, Diesel certainly know how to show a girl a good time. Cupcakes, prosecco and a live performance from Brooklyn based band-of-the-moment, FRIENDS… Sounds like a recipe for a pretty fab evening, no? Following on from the success of their last private gig and party a couple of weeks ago, Diesel decided to host another stylish soiree this Wednesday.

SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED Presents Karin Park

SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED presents Karin Park

Picking up where we left off last Thursday evening, after chatting with Garance Dore over watermelon cocktails at Kate Spade’s Covent Garden store I battled the crowds on Regent Street (not much fun in 30 degree weather and 6 inch heels) to make for party number two. Swarovski¬†Crystallized tend to pick pretty impressive ladies to star in their campaigns and this season is certainly no exception. The brand enlisted Scandinavia’s hottest new musical talent, Karin Park as their face of AW12 and invited a bunch of us along to the Swarovski Crystallized lounge to celebrate.
