LFW: Fearne Cotton's Very SS12

Surprisingly we managed to nab a seat on the second row and the lights came up in the dark room where we had all been sipping champagne (mine was out of a tumbler with a straw), and the first model headed down the catwalk sporting a hairdo that would have got every teenage girl from the 80s jealous.

The 40 piece collection essentially encapsulated Fearne's own everyday style and personality down to a tee; a mixture of pastel colours, playful shift dresses, pleated maxi skirts, all accompanied by catchy tunes that even had the FROW singing along.

There was a certain air of glamour about the collection which was cleverly balanced by the soft hues of the pieces.

"I was so excited about the show; it's incredible how the catwalk brings my ideas and sketches to life. The models look gorgeous and it is great to see them stomping down the runway to some of my favourite tunes" said Fearne.

For someone with such an established career as a TV presenter, DJ and now designer (this is her 6th collection for Very) Fearne seemed nervous when she gave a quick thank you speech at the end of the show, even with bff Holly Willoby present.

Other celebs who came to support Fearne were Whitney Port from The Hills, Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher from Mcfly and Jay from E4's Dirty Sexy Things.

Fearne's collection is on sale from December 18th at very.co.uk.
