I really enjoyed my trip to NYC for Fashion Week this season. The weather was fabulous, I had my trusty partner in crime Frances Davison with me, and the shows were great. 
My favourite shows were definitely...
  • Cynthia Rowely (would have worn every single piece that went down the catwalk, so rare for me)
  • Tibi (happy happy happy)
  • Tory Burch (best location and general show)
  • Diesel Gold (mega models and metallics make me happy)
  • Nanette Lepore (colourful fun and live music)
I will do illustrations and catwalk notes as soon as I can, so you can see what I mean. 

The atmosphere at NYFW is so different to LFW.  I think the great weather helps, but also the people are very different, I love the dressed up vibe in NYC (London is so much more casual cool), I think because I love fancy pants outfits, any excuse to make the most of my wardrobe. It made for a wonderful change, although I cant say I wasn't excited to see my wonderful bed in London. 

NYFW this season fell over the 10th anniversary of 9/11.  The city was so respectful.  The safety measures did everyone involved credit, and I felt there was a general feeling of survival, community and healing.  Frances even wore an USA flag dress for the day! 

I also attended the Mulberry 40th Anniversary Party while in NYC, which was so much fun, Kasabian played a full set, everything was decorated with Mulberry Bag Balloons and I got a balloon peony bracelet made for me to take home... now what more could a girl ask for?!

People always ask what places are on your hit list when you visit different cities, so incase you were interested here are my must sees for NYC...
I want to thank all the lovely people that made my trip extra special!
Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!
I hope I will be back soon, to make the most of NYC not just run in and out of shows. 
I didn't want to bore you all with a load of street style here by check the Press page for more details if you are interested in my other outfits.
