The conspicuous zip...
Anything sheeny, shiny and metallic...
The shearling jacket...
FASHION WEEK FUEL:
Fashion week sponsors, Mercedes Benz, put these much appreciated hampers in the boot of their cars. I think everybody had one too many jelly babies. Thank god also for the coffee carts and the Topshop Hot Choc Stop in the courtyard at Somerset House.
These two were causing quite the reaction all over town. Who are they? What do they do? I'm desperate to know!
Ashish's paper boat was my favourite.
MOST CONTROVERSIAL COLLECTION:
Fashion Editor at Large loved Meadham Kirchhoff's AW10 collection for its brave rawness. Others were not so keen.
Firstly buns - every other person was rocking one. This was my effort.
Secondly red hair. At one show I counted 10 redheads in my immediate vicinity. Is Florence Welch to blame?
SECRETS OF THE FASHION WEEK VENUES:
Underneath all the gloss this week I saw flashes of London's history. Down in the under-belly of Somerset House - in the passages which host the Fashion East show - are graves. In the deeds of the building this area is referred to as 'The Dead House'. Creepy!
Vauxhall Fashion Scout moved to the Freemason's Hall this season, and the girls who write the VFS blog spotted this. On first impressions it's a painting of King Edward VII, but look at it in a different light and a second face appears.
LIFE SAVING PRODUCTS:
Fashion Editor at Large and I both use Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment, and it was a lifesaver in this week's icy weather. Forget 8 Hour Cream, this is the new cult product that should be in your handbag.
