Editor's blog: Dispatches from the front row at London Fashion Week

We started day four with delicate mini croissants and reviving coffee before Peter Pilotto's elegant, colourful show at 9am in the autumn sunshine. And ended it 12 hours later for me in the dusky twilight of Bedford Square with J.W. Anderson’s striking show. In between we saw Erdem's neon elegance and Burberry's celebrity filled front row with its cool, calm, collected runway of supermodels in brilliant coloured trenches.

It was a powerful day for London fashion, not least because Christopher Kane staged one of his most accomplished shows ever. Its stunning elegance gave us goose bumps. Extraordinary talent in action is a wonderful thing to see in the world of fashion.

Bobbi Brown sent all the editors a brush case for #LFW. Handy

The calm before the storm. The Christopher Kanecatwalk high above London's Oxford Street. This was democracy in action as the longest front row ever snaked around this huge empty office space. Almost everyone sat on the front row. Which I think is a good thing

Before a show, the designer leaves the front row show notes describing what is to come on the catwalk. Last night we had this from J.W. Anderson whose show I loved. Especially the boots
