London Fashion Week part 1

It's begun and I've done one afternoon and that's enough for me. Luckily I'm working all week or I'd be sucked in. My feet hurt and I'm tired. Also I let you all down, I nearly took a photo of Peaches Geldorf plus 2 others doing a piece to camera but as I poised to take it, I sort of just went no in my head and didn't. Don't know what I was thinking of in the first place.

I duly made my way to the Vauxhall Fashion Scout catwalk as I'd been invited to the Karen Borst London show via the ever thoughtful Rebekah Roy of Stylist Stuff

Once there I stumbled across, well actually I couldn't miss Tracy Rose as she was wearing such an amazing metallic ruffled or is that ruffled metallic hat. Turns out she is a millinery and a statement head turning one at that. Tracy and her husband Russell Rose are also currently writing a book called Fashion Fabulous London to be published next year at the A/W 09 London Fashion Week.

I'll be filing my next LFW reports later as I need sleep but more importantly have to catch up on everyone elses blogs first......
