I can't really mention Day 1 without the pre Fashion Week party on Wednesday evening: Archive by Alexa Chung for Marks & Spencer. A collection of 31 pieces selected by Alexa and the M&S design team - in store 13th April (but you can register your interest here).
Day 1 was mixed, with shows from Daks, Eudon Choi and then presentations and press days in between, and we finished up at a few parties - I mainly spent the day with fab Bonnie from The Style Traveller - it's always good to have a Fashion Week buddy or it can be a rather lonely experience!
I loved the Eudon Choi show, so fresh and the navy coats and layering were perfect.
We ran into my instagram crush Kelly Harrington (a designer from H&M) between shows, looking fab all in blue:
John Smedley's presentation was a surprise hit for me, loved the wool layering (might be bringing out my wool flares from H&M last winter).
