Do you remember when I promised more videos? Well, I decided to do something a little different for my fashion week content and do a vlog, I know get me. One of the most frequently asked questions is “what do you get up to at fashion week?”, and they always answer it themselves with “I bet it is so glamourous”, well, it isn’t, it is a little crazy, always rushing between shows, but I can’t deny that it is always so much fun.

Well, it is, but as I’ve been doing this for more seasons than I care to count, I’ve put together some survival tips to help me make the five-days fashion week comes to London go without a hitch and to make sure I make it to the end without running out of steam.
Fashion should be fun that’s what I’ve always believed and I love that fashion week allows fashion designers to showcase their collections in fun ways, like emerging designer Clio Peppiatt who created her own motel, which had a Grand Budapest Hotels meets The Shining vibe.
