The month of February

Yet again, has involved little to no running and yet again, a whole load of fashion.

It started with a trip to see D'Angelo!
D'Angelo - Lady
How we swooned
The to see Queen Elizabeth II by Cecil Beaton at the V&A

The to the Tate Modern to see the fantastical Yayoi Kusama exhibition 

The lady herself ( even her wheelchair is covered in polka dots)
I went to see the Lucian Freud Portraits exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. I've always been a fan of his work, and loved seeing traditional oil painting celebrated.

Then before I knew it, it was time for London Fashion Week. So we headed down to beautiful Somerset House  for a week of shows.  This is T-Rex charm was the invitation to designer Sophie Hulme's  presentation
I saw Arctic explorers at Eudon Choi
Loved Richard Nicoll's live studio presentation
And Fred Butler's origami apparel
Anya Hindmarch's all singing all dancing fun factory was a highlight
The hippies were happy at Ashish
We went to the latest Peroni Talks Q&A with editor, stylist and paparazzi dream Anna Dello Russo who talked about her career, style and plans for pop music stardom
Then we played amongst the old masters and the relics in the V&A
I interviewed the legendary musician, feminist and style icon Annie Lennox for The Observer O: Magazine 
After five solid days of Fashion Week shows and presentations, I took the morning off and went to see The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman exhibition curated by Grayson Perry at The British Museum.

Then the next day was a 4am start for Milan Fashion Week!

Surprisingly, the sun shone and we zoomed around the city from show to presentation and presentation to show - doing around 13 appointments a day.

Our driver Seba is a Milanese reggae star, so naturally his band Rhoyal Sound became the soundtrack to Fashion Week, and our tiny Fiat 500 car packed with fashion girls & reggae music blaring from the speakers made quite an impression in a sea of blacked out Mercedes filled with po-faced editors.

The show locations are always a highlight for me during fashion weeks. Often held in grand villas and private houses. The ceiling at the Zagliani presentation was pretty amazing...
Drinks around the pool at Tod's

Fancy footwork at Furla
Dolce & Gabbana
Salvatore Ferragamo
Oh, and I found a new friend too!
It was definitely a busy month and this is my first day off for 28 days! I loved it, but it didn't leave a lot of time to run like 'elle
