Tracy Rose's Fashion Week diary pt5
Is it really the last installment of Tracy Rose's London Fashion Week diary already? As we wave goodbye to Fashion Week here is Tracy Rose's Friday rundown:
We finished off on Thursday night at On|Off for the Sado show which was a very elegant collection. I then partied into the night at the post-Sado show party at the Maddox Club in Mayfair.
Friday was a slightly later start in the morning at Gavin Douglas at the BFC tent. I found myself sitting next to Ann Widdecombe MP who said it was the first time she had been to a fashion show. Earlier this week I was being filmed by ITV for her documentary on fashion and body image and we had a chat about the issues concerned in the documentary before the show started.
Gavin Douglas showed classic and interesting pieces, I especially loved the woolen jacket and pencil skirt in ivory. After the show we filmed some more of the documentary and then Ann Widdecombe declared that she was going to walk down the catwalk. I said I would be her audience much to the hilarity of passers-by. Obviously it was too much for the British Fashion Council who boomed over the loudspeakers "Please Leave The Auditorium, Immediately!
Back in the Press Room, I discussed more about the size issue of models with TV presenter Caryn Franklin who agreed with me that super-thin models do not look attractive.I then did a piece for Harpers TV about London Fashion Week and how much I enjoyed the Gavin Douglas show.
Then it was off for some much needed Yorkshire Tea and yummy cakes from Betty's of York at Unconditional. Their "World to Come" show was a very wearable collection especially strong on the menswear.
Last we heard from Tracy she was off to Julien Macdonald and Daydream Nation for the shows (and parties of course!)
