Working for a weekly fashion magazine is my day job. So in between wondering whether I’ve got enough whole milk and Petit Filous in the fridge, my mind is full of catwalk images, street style pictures and who wore what and when.
Fashion – as we all know – is a topsy turvy world where, just as we’re thinking of putting the heating on and buying our Winter coat in the real world, the fashion world watches models parade up a catwalk in next Spring’s collections.
As I write, all eyes are on the runway in NYC where the likes of Donna Karan, Victoria Beckham and Derek Lam are all showing off their vision for SS14. Then on Friday (13th!) the world will descend upon the capital for London Fashion Week, where I will be amongst thousands heading for their seats in tents erected in Somerset House.
What to wear, what to wear? *EEEK*
