For people watchers and photographers it was pure theater. There weren't many people who just threw on an outfit! Somerset House became a flocking point for these colourful fashion birds; dressed in their finery, and their costumes. It was a beautiful and entertaining thing to behold.
I had a brief chat with Simon McGill, a hard working photographer who would already be installed in the grounds of Somerset House, working away, when I arrived each day. Upon leaving, when the showrooms were closed and my working day was done, Simon was STILL there! Braving the inclement London weather with a stiff upper lip I should imagine. I recommend checking out his photo stream on flickr here if you want to get a feel for the amazing range of 'street style' outfits that were parading outside the runway tents.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go and hand deliver a very important jewellery commission. More on London Fashion Week later mes amis. Bon Weekend to you all.
