London FASHION WEEK

MY CATS EYE ALEXANDER WANG GLASSES TWICE STOLEN, CHANEL JACKET WITH A MARC JACOBS DRESS

I woke this morning to find fairies had been re doing my site. I hope you like it?  The fairies have
immaculate taste and I am lucky to have them on my side.  Sometimes they can be naughty but usually I find something truly special. Thank you to those that make my dreams true.

EMILIA WICKSTEAD



Fashion Week in London is becoming a big a glamorous event. The models looked wonderful in Emilia Wickstead with their sleek hair by Snowden Hill and nude make up by Emma O'byrne. The clothes although not hugely different from her other collections are wearable for those occasions that you need a proper dress. Beautifully cut.  high waitsted with pleats to the mid calf. The colours were faded pink with lime, although I am not crazy about this combination Emilia is always willing to do your choice too. She is after all mostly about couture. Her collections are for the grand although she wears them on  daily basis. Visit her and you will find her looking fit for a lunch at the Palace any day for the week. I am fond of her because she compromised her designs to follow my idea of putting a white satin collar on a lace dress I liked, despite her reservations she is always willing to expand.  Emma O'Byrne did the make up and Snowden Hill the hair. Very different from the Marc Jacobs show last week. Wherever Charles Finch is you know that you are at a winner of an event.

RAG AND BONE
RAG AND BONE COLLECTION
WAITING TO SEE ANNA WINTOUR OUTSIDE RAG AND BONE's NEW SHOP

Marcus Wainwright and David Neville took the plunge in 2002,  to open a house called Rag and Bone with no formal training to create clothes that fit well look creative, and have a downtown sensibility.  You know you are at the right show when the ageless and gamine Anna Wintour, Editor of American Vogue attends. This was a cosy affair in the heart of Sloane Square with Alexandra Shulman, Editor of British of Vogue sitting in one of the few seats available.  American based fashion company is based in the old National Westminster Bank where they made the most of the stunning space.
Showing wonderful zany casual clothes, chic with a twist, mini skirts in blue with black lace petticoats. Large coats in chiffon to cotton in orange, lime, white and sea blue. The models with long hair again by Snowden Hill, greased back and left with stunning clean make up. No seating except for the front row where I grabbed a place.  opposite me were mirrors so you could see your reflection along with the clothes. A clever idea.  All the fashionable and good looking were there, leggy blondes with round glasses looking like Poppy and Chloe Delevigne wannabees, fashionistas and Jefferson Hack as king, looking suitably bronzed and attractive.  The Eurostrash have long gone, this was an Anglo/American affair.

DAYLESFORDS AT SELFRIDGES


AMANDA ELIASCH WITH EMMA O'BYRNE


Afterwards I went to Daylefords who have the most incredible Pop up shop at the top of Selfridges, where I had tea with Alice Bamford and Emma O'byrne. We talked about horses, Los Angeles and I giggled about my love life, as they planned and schemed.

HOME

I eventually came back to get ready for the evening changing out of my black satin Marc Jacobs dress. My son was horrified. "Put it back on and don't wear shorts like the girls around town" he cried.  "Why don't you wear fitted clothes, your dresses make you look like you have wide hips"
