Fashion has gone Thigh High and it’s time to Re-Boot!

Vogues Fashion’s Night Out last week showed us the way. We were thigh deep in the newest trend with Posh in New York wearing the extreme boot version whilst in London we shopped until we dropped for those more modest thigh highs!

Grazing and sipping across Bond St, Oxford St and Regent St every business and brand offered us something gorgeous to see or do. From the Daisy Lowe shoot at Chanel to Rupert Sanderson’s largest ever high heeled shoe construction - it was fun and free. Well done to all contributors!

Bond St Association’s Deputy Chairman Pauline Hudson Evans who owns the fabulous fashion recruitment company took me round and at Juicy’s new store  we joined Ann Cunliffe Commercial Director and Karen Plishka HR Manager Europe for cup cakes and champers!

Mark Hislop, Commercial Director, took time out of his busy schedule to talk to me about his plans for the future. We will be learning more in later posts but I am pleased to say that he is firmly placing Somerset House on the map as a hub of Fashion, Art and Culture. The British Fashion Council has taken up SH office residence, along with many others, so there is a fantastic buzz about our LFW’s new home!
