Sadly, we must say goodbye to London Fashion Week until September. We’ve had another great season in London, as we have learnt to expect, from some (ahem, vast majority) of the most exciting talent in the world. We were entertained at Meadham Kirchoff, awed at Mary Katrantzou, and reminded how god damn cool the Swedes are at Acne (above). Adieu London, until September. Until then we must say ‘ciao regazzi!’ to Milan Fashion Week and everything you have in store for us. Arrivederci.

I’m sure that I’m not alone in saying that Jonathan Saunders has been my favourite catwalk show so far during LFW A/W 12. Twitter went wild after the show, with excited fashion journalists and blogger enthusing over the collection.
For me, the palette, pattern and texture were the highlights of the show. The embossed effects on the coats, jackets and skirts were beautiful, as were Saunders’ signature brightly coloured geometric patterns.
Saunders is one designer that each season progressively gets better, which is so fantastic to see in a young (British) designer. I really can’t wait to see what he does next.

French Vogue have recently created a music video of their team covering Wham's 'Wake Me Up Before You Go Go', with Emmanuelle Alt featuring as George Michael in his heyday. It is seriously addictive viewing and I have been raving about it to anyone who will listen (I'd like to publicly apologise to my colleagues for this).

Here in London we are experiencing a bought of cold weather (slight exaggeration to all of you reading on the Continent, Eastern Europe, North America etc). However, it is cold enough to tempt me in to hibernation this weekend. The thought of leaving the house is daunting and all I want to do is curl up on the sofa under my duvet and watch a good fashion flick. A film club for one.
The fashion film in question is the much anticipated ‘Bill Cunningham; New York’. It has been on my hit list for a while now and I can’t wait to get an insight in to the world of Bill. Let’s hope that it is worth the wait, especially as it took eight years for Cunningham to agree to the documentary.
Anna Wintour has previously said, "We all get dressed for Bill". Anything that is good enough for Anna…
