It was an early start on Day 2, which was totally worth it considering I have always found Mark Fast’s distinctive knit dresses absolutely irresistible. It was also great to see a plus-size model opening the show, sporting his trademark black cobweb number. Although it’s still very much one of the sexiest labels you can find on the London runways, the SS10 collection definitely featured a more girly attitude with a palette of soft mint, lemon, nude and hot pink, accessorised with beads for party time. The shoes were courtesy of Mr Louboutin of course, who was front row seated next to Kate Phelan – Vogue’s Fashion Director.Then I was off to the Blow Presents featuring young and original talents such as Iris Van Herpen with her incredible leather pieces. Talking about leather, the Hannah Marshall show was the place to be for ‘80s power dressing aficionados. There was amazing black chiffon and leather panels on dresses and Erin O’Connor gracefully closed the show in front of a celebrity-packed front row, including Skunk Anansie’s Skin, the Geldof sisters and the beautiful and pregnant Rosin Murphy.Violaine Bernard
