London Fashion week escapades day one

Fresh off the plane from NYC I barely had time to reacclimatise to the time difference before I had to get ready for a new adventure.... London Fashion week.

With all the invites received and printed off I was ready to go down to sunset house.

As I had been sipping champagne and Mastering the art of walking in high heels at an event held at Terra Plana in High Street Kensington the night before I felt brave enough to face the cobble stone paving of Somerset house. BAD IDEA

I took a dramatic tumble right outside the registration office. After receiving some sympathetic glances from passersby ignored my throbbing knee and hobbled to hail a cab to take me to to my 1st Catwalk show (I couldn’t bear the 5-10 minute walk to the Freemason hall)

Upon arrival at the Ones to watch – Women’s wear catwalk show I met say my friend Samuel and we went in together. After having to wait in the holding area for 20 mins Catwalk show my hopes of being able to finally sit down were dashes when I entered the packed hall, in order to get a decent view I had to actually balance on a ledge bad knee, high heels and all!!

The shoes that didn’t do right with the cobble stones

After the show I said bye to Samuel and went to the press room at Somerset house to sit down and drown my sorrows in a cup of tea. Luckily my friend Veronica vain saw my tweets about my fall and promised to bring me some flat shoes YEAYYYY!!

Off I then went back to the Freemason hall for the Krystof Strozuna Catwalk Show. After having to stand around for 45 minutes due to the show running late I was starting to get irritable until I was advised that I could sit down in the front row!! Woo woo! Even got a goodie bag.

You can see half of me in the far right hand side.

Once the show was over I jumped in a cab back to Somerset house to meet up with Veronica vain in the press room. After another cup of tea and flat shoes I Was good to go and ready to check out the Bora Aksu Catwalk show in the BFC Tent where we spotted Beverly Knight and Nicole from girls aloud. Unfortunately the show was oversubscribed and over 100 people were turned away us included.

While deciding what to do Samuel met us in the BFC tent and we watched people complaining to the PR ladies and got talking to Bijani Mizel the GLOBAL Editor for Posh

Samuel being silly and me watching him

After introductions we all jumped in a cab headed for the Ashley Isham Catwalk show at Mercer Studios. We didn’t even managed to get out of the cab before it declared that the show was full so we instructed the cab driver to take us to the Charring cross hotel for the A La Mode catwalk show unfortunately as the show was late and Veronica vain, Samuel and Bijani Mizel had to run of the PPQ show leaving me to cover A La Mode alone.
