It is less than a week until we leave for Paris and Milan fashion weeks. In the weeks leading up to this event I am visualising, choosing, rethinking what to pack. Will it work in multiple situations? Will it be warm enough or cool enough? How will I look at dinner perched next to models who have just finished from the Lanvin show? All these questions come into consideration. Here are my thoughts, do you approve?
Buying appointments involving sitting, perching in front of my laptop, running after a model with an outfit we adore and photographing pieces we will order. I love colour in spring and a dress is easy to layer with a blazer, a denim jacket, a scarf, ballets, slippers or even boots as the weather turns (as does constantly in Paris!)

Dinners during Paris Fashion Week are a feast for the eyes. Our favourite destinations are the Costes brothers’ masterpieces. l’Avenue, La Societe and Georges are our spots and for good reason. Stephen Jones, Rihanna, Galliano, Yasmine Sewell and anyone else you could care to think of. It is our chance to throw out the comfort-first approach on doll up!
