London Fashion Week Report: Partying with Nick Knight, BFC and Kitsune

Alannah Sparks

Another packed night of London Fashion Week parties began at the majestic Somerset House, this time down on the embankment of the Thames for the launch of Nick Knight’s "Fashion Revolution" exhibition. The crowd spilled out onto the wide tree-lined sidewalk to avoid hovering on the daunting red carpet, but that expanse was quickly filled with the arrival of the magnificent Naomi Campbell who caused a minor riot when she arrived to congratulate Nick -- and to check out her own starring role in the exhibition. After we had nabbed a few asparagus spears and some rosemary lamb we zipped over to the British Fashion Council 25th anniversary celebration party at the May Fair. Incredibly, there was no hierarchy to the guest list, and we were sent to the back of the queue along with the lovely Kirna Zabete buyer Mimi, as well as a few models. Once in, the bellinis were great but the music wasn’t to our taste, so we crossed town to Bluebird on King’s Road where we knew the dancefloor would be a dead cert. Uber cool indie French label Kitsuné was in charge of the evening along with party experts Ponystep, so the house was kept thumping to dirty electro until late. Sylph-like indie kids in achingly cool threads kept the mood upbeat as everyone realized that London’s parties were drawing to a close. At least until next week.
