Editor's Blog: Day 5 draws London to a close

LFW ends on a high (literally thanks to Anya Hindmarch)


Today I’m wearing: Miu Miu coat, Saint Laurent bag, Hobb’s boots, Ermanno Scervino skirt, M&S jumper and Prada shades.

Kid critics: Got it right on the final day - the foursome love a furry boot. ‘Cool mum’ is about as much praise as I will get.

The day started in space with Anya Hindmarch’s gravity defying show, and ended firmly on planet earth in the pouring rain of Regent’s Park. Harry Styles popped up on the front row again at Fashion East and Withnail (Richard E Grant) watched Anya (as a huge fan of the cult film this made my day).


And today's highlight? The breathtaking and extraordinary show that Simone Rocha staged. She is the first recipient of our ELLE/Cointreau bursary and I am so glad we helped support her because as I watched her show today I got goose-bumps; it is a rare thing to see design genius that close up and to know the passion and creativity behind it. Please watch her show because she is one of the best London designers of our time.

1. Derek my @Audiuk driver for fashion week. What a patient man.

2. I only had three (four) - quite reasonable really, lovely between-the-shows treats from Topshop in Regents Park.

3. Anya Hindmarch had models floating above the catwalk for her Out of This World show and treated the front row to a personal birth chart - mine suggested that as a Cancerian I may try my hand at interpretative dance. Strictly here I come (can I have Anton please).

And so it ends until February. Hope you enjoyed the blog (look at our This is London reportage in October ELLE to get an even deeper sense of the work that goes into making London Fashion Week) and I will see you in Milan. Up and out by 7am tomorrow.
