September is the best month of the year for me. It’s still a little warm from the Summer, we have Vogues bumper September Issue to feed on and we have Autumn/Winter wear to dive into, coats, boots, hats. Best of all London host’s one of my favourite events, London fashion Week.
September is also my birthday month and my wedding anniversary. I always feel a little blessed in September, and the sun usually shines.
Shine it did for this London Fashion Week, where I’ve seen a good mix of our home grown talent.
Ones to watch gave us new structure on old vibes. More on these fresh new designers soon.
Paul Costelloe went back to basics with Irish Linen. With amazingly understated linen brilliance. Amazing shapes and all from one material.
Pam Hogg did her own (very good) thing with all things rock and roll. (This catwalk is just as much a party as a show). It has the best rock outfits and the best audience to rock stars and rock chic’s to boot!
And the rest, Preen, Belstaff, Ashley Isham, all so good for us involved in Uk fashion. Even if you don’t get FROW, and I don’t always, it’s such a charismatic industry to support and report on.
The fashion economy in the UK is now worth an estimated £50 Billion a year. It’s not to be sniffed at folks.
Hurray for LFW. We do this well!
