Editor's blog: London Fashion Week draws to a close



(Dior bag, Russell & Bromley shoes, Alberta Ferretti dress)

The last day started with Mulberry's accomplished show played out to the tune of Always look on the bright side of life and ended after Fashion Fringe's showcase of new talent. Then it was home to pack for a 5am start heading to Milan Fashion Week. http://twitter.com/LorraineELLE and Instagram lorraineelle this week for more thoughts from the front row!

Editor's five Fashion Week favourites:

Bags: During Anya Hindmarch's astonishing presentation you almost forgot the bags. But a little pale green clutch shaped like an apple caught my eye. Place your order now!

Music: The DJ Martin Stacey did a brilliant mix for Mulberry which included Bowie

Boots: Meadham Kirchhoff’s thigh high extravaganzas

Moment: Chatting to ELLE cover girl Alexa Chung who always manages to take something and give it her own look. She would have been an amazing stylist

Quote of the day: 'Will there be food?" At least one member of the team asks this every 20 minutes. I carry mixed nuts and chocolate for them now


Meet Max the poodle. He was on the catwalk at the first show of the day for me at Mulberry. A frisky little chap

After the Mulberry show we got cake. Angel cake. Which I ate in the car reluctantly sharing with the team

It said 'Of bottoms and beauty spots' inside!

Meadham Kirchhoff is one of my favourite shows

We work with Audi at ELLE for Fashion Week and the ELLE Style Awards
