I’ll only have time to make it to 2 parties this LFW A/W 2015 season, mainly because I’m totally swamped in preparing for the Silverbird TV Show, LFW Special which I’m Coordintating and Presenting, but more on that later.
I summed up my impressions of both parties in this way because later on in the year, for Berlin Fashion Week, I might be doing a Berlin Fashion Week Party Diary write up for a magazine, so I wanted to give the idea a test run in London. For the Berlin Fashion Week Party version, I hope to have a photographer who can take venue shots and party shots of guests in attendance.
Let me know what you think of my test run, suggestions, comments, improvements and the like!

MEMORABLE CONVERSATIONS? Dude comes up to me and goes, ‘What’s your favourite song?’, at a loss I flippantly reply, ‘La Isla Bonita by Madonna’, then he points to my Guns N Roses T Shirt and goes, ‘Noooooo, of Guns N Roses!!’ Note To Self: Must get more Band T’s, they seem to be fun conversation starters…
