Weekly Reheat: From furry front row heels to the Spanish Embassy in London

posted on: Sunday, 22 September 2013


We'll kick off the Fashion Foie Gras reheat with Angela Scanlon's enviable shows this week. She sat opposite us front row at Margaret Howell during LFW. Just look at those shoes. Furry pom-poms are a thing now... just letting you know. 


Another Anna Wintour sighting, this time on the front row of Christopher Kane, sitting next to the brand's new investor.


This is the only way to travel during fashion week. The Communication's Store's Daniel Marks rushed between shows on the back of a motor bike. When you are putting together as many shows as he is every season, the back of the bike is your only option for getting places on time. 


After declaring I want to go down the inking road, I've been playing with temporary tattoos to see where and what I'd like to do. My latest temp tattoos come from Fickle. I'm obsessed with these guys. They hold up and look so real! Highly recommend.


The Apartment at London Fashion Week is THE place to go and relax for select bloggers over the course of the week. Blogger Abi Marvel put the whole thing together three seasons ago and it has become the place to see and be seen ever since. From Balthazar breakfasts to Shake Shack suppers, a sample closet overflowing with clothes and Laura Mercier on hand to touch up your makeup throughout the day, this is officially the hottest spot off the catwalks in London. This season, Abi truly outdid herself with an amazing list of brand partnerships. If only it were open all year round!


For the first time since she opened her first shop in London, Eileen Fisher was in London. She invited us for a very special dinner to not only say hello to all of us London fashion journalists, but also to showcase her spring summer 2014 collection, as styled by London guru Pippa Vosper. 


Breakfast of champions at Harrods.


This one's for Boomer! So happy to announce that we won, darling pup. We won our first gold star for the "Journalist Pet of All Pets." This now has a special place in the office. If only Boomer were here with us on a day to day basis. So sad and I'm missing my little guy horribly at the moment!


On Friday, I was invited down the Spanish Embassy in London for a special event showcasing Spanish fashion designers. Hoss Intropia and Miguel Palacio invited me as their guest for the press breakfast. We were introduced to the Spanish Ambassador and taken around the exhibit for a first look at the fabulous designs coming out of Spain at the moment.
