I started London Fashion Week a little worse for wear after a brilliant night at the Bjorn Borg party in Battersea Power Station. I'm writing up shows over the next five days for Wonderland magazine (I've told you many times before, I know).
So, my blog is going to become more of a London Fashion Week diary for the next 5 days as there is little point/no chance in hell of me trying to write up two different reports on the same shows. If you fancy reading some of my (slightly more articulate) reports, click on the names of shows as I mention them to read it on Wonderland.
Today kicked off with Corrie Nielsen, and after last season, I had high expections, which of course, she lived up to. Next was Bora Aksu; if you thought winter was about going back to black, you're very wrong. The show was injected with bright pinks, oranges and dreamy patterns. I skipped a couple of shows to finally get breakfast (at around 2pm) and write up some reports.
PPQ was the highlight for me today; a young, starlet audience dancing in the seats to 90s tunes, models adorning love heart beauty spots and a collection of newly found elegance.
CSM's MA show closed my day. There was an awkward moment when I got downgraded a couple of rows as the frow (and I'll add that will most likely be the only frow ticket I get this season) was full, which was probably a good thing considering Bip Ling and Susie Lau were amidst where I was supposed to be - I probably would have felt far too intimidated to pay any attention to the clothes, and/or the next generation of great designers.
