London Fashion Week

LFW Day 2; people spotting

Hello world,

One of the brilliant things about London Fashion Week is the amount of people watching you can do. All you have to do is plant yourself at the entrance of Somerset House and watch all the famous people walk past.

Now I’m not much on following celebrities, but the intimacy of Somerset House makes the whole thing surprisingly fun. Not to mention you’re only a few steps away from them.

Saturday wasn’t as brilliant as today was in regards to famous people watching, but I was rather proud to snap photos of John Rocha and Paloma Faith.

So a lot of cool things happened to me today, from running into my old boss, the editor of Irish Tatler, the fabulous Jessie Collins and having Diane Pernet sit down next to me and Jess while we were eating lunch.
Oh my God, Diane Pernet sat down next to us!!! She’s a legend in the fashion world and I especially loved her black turban with accompanying beetle brooches on her head. I was too petrified to grab a photo of her. Celebrities and fellow magazine editors, no problem but I couldn’t do it to Diane.

So it was a suitably fabulous day, but I have to head off again. Fashion week is calling…

Until then,

Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
