It's that time of year again when fashion week comes to town. Trouble is, all over the world people seem to be saying that same thing. I'm having a whinge due to fashion week fatigue and we've only just started the season has. My eyes hurt. Make it stop. Don't get me wrong.
You all know I love imagery and fashion but I need a break.

OK. Whinge over.

The weekend of the 16th - 19th September saw all that is fashion come to good old London town. The stars came to visit their favorite shows. The actresses, models, style icons, super editors, the bloggers and the worlds top street fashion fans all descended on the centre of town.
For one day only, even the sunshine paid London a visit all be it very brief as the dominant side of British weather always has the last word, It spoke in volumes on Saturday evening and wouldn't shut up for ages. Rain,rain, rain. Bla, bla, bla.

Well when the sun shined earlier, the cameras were out. Tommy Ton, The Sartorialist, Facehunter, WGSN. the usual crown plus a whole lot more. While the Holly Fulton show was up next to feature its offerings for what we'll be wearing for the spring of 2012, the streets were packed. Rammed with bodies most of them cameras in hand. It was exciting thought.
I love people watching. Who doesn't? It all happened in front of your eyes and what a site.

Elle magazine fashion editor, the lovely Kate Lanphear chasing Tommy Ton. Anna Dello Russo. The fashion editor to Vogue Nippon, you know, the Italian woman with the most amazing legs who showed up dressed in a white trouser suit with matching hat & cute Bottega Veneta clutch bag. What an entrance she made. Showstopping. It was a packed and most eventful weekend.
I met many new faces from many different places.

Join us for a brief journey through the images from that weekend that was Fashion Week in London.

Here she is again, rocking a different shade of blue
for the Marios Schwab show.

While we're on the rare celebrity trip, we have Jade Ewen
of the Sugababes. Ever so pretty and paying her dues in velvet blue hues.

Peaches Geldof walks tall albeit very carefully in a towering
high pair of platform heels

Much more sensibly and stylishly dressed was singer
Paloma Faith flying the flag in designs by Ashish. Love the
socks and Lita boots she rocks, the latter by Jeffrey Campbell

Here's a familiar face you'll see at London Fashion Week.
You usually see him causing all manner of Pandemonia

Pretty in pink. Especially when they're from Prada.
Makes the eve more pretty don't you think?

Be green to be seen in these slingback pencil heels

Just putting the boot in. Nice aren't they. from Opening Ceremony.
More green. Are we envious yet? This time we're looking at
some very pretty heels from Kurt Geiger.

YSL pumps towering high. Working them in the light

And on the right, working them in the dark with socks.
Socks and heels was one of the more popular trends
one spotted at London Fashion Week.

OK, Enough for now
More foot candy later on. Have so save some for later.

I love this dress from Miu Miu
