London Fashion Week is known for its cutting edge designs and the most exclusive, insider parties. I’m fortunate to have close relationships with some of the best British designers and it's always even more exciting to attend their runway shows.

I was honored to attend the most exclusive party to kick off London Fashion Week hosted by Vogue and J. Crew together with U.S. Ambassador to the U.K., Matthew Barzun, and his wife, Brooke Brown Barzun at Winfield House. London’s fashion elite were all in attendance including Victoria Beckham, Erdem, Christopher Kane, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Net-A-Porter group founder Natalie Massenet, while Brit babes Poppy Delevingne and Alexa Chung both shared with me their total admiration for Whispering Angel rosé as its sister wine, Les Esclans, was being poured for guests mingling around the grand house and private garden.
Style details: Stella McCartney dress, Antonio Berardi Jacket, Alexander McQueen clutch and Bionda Castana shoes.
Fashion’s most influential arrived at the end of the day to the Green Carpet Challenge party held at The Wallace Colllection, one of London’s most exquisite galleries in an historic London town house. Founded by Livia Firth, wife of Colin Firth, the Green Carpet Challenge chooses a designer each year to create a capsule collection using only sustainable materials. This year, Erdem was up for the challenge.
Later that night at the Miu Miu x LOVE magazine party at Lou Lou’s, I ran into the model Grace Bol who wore my exact look down the runway just six months prior at the last London Fashion Week. She said that has never happened to her before, where she has seen someone actually wearing the full look she wore down the runway.
