After not receiving any invites from a Major PR company, Clements Ribeiro was my first port of call and was a totally pleasure. The collection had some beautiful pieces and it was a nice surprise bumping into a blogger I know and having a quick catch up. Funny enough she mentioned a certain socialite-wannabe we both know and I am so pleased she is beginning to see them for who they really are.

Jealous and pretentious. A very nasty and poisonous way to be.

Jaeger London had the perfect combo for summer and the collection had the most gorgeous dress with Scallop cut detail – I think another trip to their regent street store is in need.

After the busy and hectic get in for John Rocha, the show was a dramatic display as usual and I love their PR team. They totally made me feel welcome and pleased to see me.

With a mad dash to Vivienne Westwood, I finally found my labelled seat that was right next to rather large person. Not that her being large was a problem but she continued to shove her elbow and digital camera in the way of my view. Why people try to take pictures with their phones and Digital camera’s is beyond me. The shutter speed is so bad that you may as well have a look at the images on Style.com the next day.

I’m surprised this girl didn’t see the steam coming out of my ears.

The day finally came to a close (which I was so thankful for) when I got to Fashion Fringe and had a quick catch up with Roland Mouret. I still stand by my initial thoughts about him; he is the nicest Designer I have yet to meet. With the winners announced, a very commercial yet creative collection, I was homeward bound. This sadly took ages as there were delays on the trains as somebody decided to get hit by one…..oh the glamour of LFW.
