Then two models brought Karen onto the catwalk to receive her deserved applause.
The collection (not done justice by my blackberry) was pure grown up glamour. Feminine, flirty and fabulous. I relished the cut and detail, the turn ups on the trousers, the buttons on the sleeves and the enticing flash of lilac under the red dresses. I particularly loved on floaty red number 10 & 11 in the photos for its loose languid drape and drop at the back with a good tight cut at the front. Lots of Karen's clients were at the show (with their daughters bearing names such as Savannah) wearing her clothes and it suited the Chelsea, Notting Hill lady. I would recommend the clothes because it is pure women and yet had the right amount of edgy.
Sat next to me on the left was the gorgeous Naomi from Glamour magazine but she felt the show did have anything to offer their readers. If the accompanying press release is correct then the selection of Karen Brost items for 'Gossip Girl' might change that - I'd prefer the grown ups to have Karen as their best kept secret but such a talent is bound to become bigger than the sloaney ladies who lunch.
