It’s always super exciting to be at the opening show of Fashion Week. Everyone is at their most energetic, and with a brand new space at Somerset House the Bora Aksu show was buzzing this morning.
I caught up with my favourite front row buddy Kate Nash, who filled me in on New York Fashion Week and her crazy passionate brazilian fans. After a ‘Turkish Delight’ daydream of incredible clothes, I was happy to chat with the Tatler fashion girls in the courtyard before heading home to get ready for Daks.
I swapped my Escada fur jacket for an All Saints bomber jacket, teamed with a polo neck and a camo print scarf, and hurried back down to the courtyard. There, I bumped into old Made in Chelsea friend Rosie Fortescue, before settling down for the riviera chic ride that was Daks SS14.
Angela Scanlon caught my eye in a holographic panelled jacket, whereas a brief chat and a rain dodge lead to huge traffic aka missing the Roland Mouret drinks. So what’s a girl to do? I settled for the Simone Rocha St Martins Lane pop up bar for a little cocktail with girlfriends before home!
Day 1 down and all I can say is: we all want happiness, no one wants pain but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain!
