LFW: Round-Up Of Day 4 (Mark Fast, Pam Hogg & Cocktails At One Aldwych!)

LFW: Round-Up Of Day 4 (Mark Fast, Pam Hogg & Cocktails At One Aldwych!)

LFW Day 4 Highlights, Mark Fast at FashionBite 2

Day 4 kicked off by mistakenly finding myself in the men’s toilets to the bemusements of many ‘goers’. As you can imagine, I hastily proceeded to the BFC tent for Mark Fast.

Normally I am a fan of an 80’s soundtrack (opening with Salt ‘n’ Pepa’s, ‘Push It’) 90’s ghetto gold jewellery, lots of colour and Daisy Lowe modelling, but this time around it felt a tad contrived. Although it was a pleasant show, there was nothing new about the Dalston ‘rude girl/Lily Allen’ creole hoops and 80’s references. Though I did enjoy the lilac tasselled showstopper and trademark fringing- that will always be a winner, but Argos jewellery and Auntie Barb’s uneven frizzy afro? Known for his figure hugging silhouettes, it must have been a welcome relief for the models that Triumph was the catwalk supplier of lingerie for the show.

Shimmying passed the photographers on the way out who were all hoping for another glimpse of FROW attendees, Pixie Lott, ‘Mr. Cheekbones’ Oliver Cheshire, Kelly Brooke and Kate Nash, it was definitely time for a cocktail or two. Luckily 5* hotel, One Aldwych had invited myself and Emily to try the new, Fashion 75 cocktail, a remake of the fashionista party favourite. How lovely it was too!

Before leaving for Pam Hogg, I overheard Swedish actress, Noomi Rapace speaking not too highly of Mark Fast in the toilets but irritatingly loud about her Givenchy shoes to an unimpressionable audience of four. Oh how I loved to watch the Millennium series before…

Pam Hogg was always going to be the biggest designer to show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout and after the scrum at the entrance, we were finally in. Sitting opposite Jaime Winstone (love her and her wooden platform boots!) we also spotted Alfie Allen, Jo Wood, Booby Gillespie and Big Pink frontman Robbie Furze (whose new wife, Lady Mary Charteris- who recently wore a mid-driff baring Pam Hogg number for her nuptials- was walking in the show).

After opening with an underwear-clad model moving atmospherically down the dark catwalk with torches (resembling the creature from horror film, ‘Creep’) the collection itself was usual Hogg. The first outfits consisted of ‘The Shining’ like identical twins, linen nurse outfits and Alice Dellal’s naked tush- all about the attitude and mood created and less about the actual clothes. The rest of the show we saw Hogg’s iconic futuristic catsuit revived in different colours, ‘Big Bird’ in sequins, Soho fetish PVC boots, a tutu in mourning and ending with Dellal’s Brazilian wax. The show was what you expected; a ‘whose who’ of that scene and last season’s leftovers- and yet the show still got the biggest applause I’ve heard all LFW.

My lustworthy piece of the day was by British jewellery brand, Mawi  spotted in the exhibition area. Worn by Rihanna and Rita Ora, their first collection of luxurious handbags included this double-pocketed, brightly embellished clutch; incredible! Another product mentally placed on the wishlist.

With DSTRKT club calling for the after-party- day 4 was nearly at a close. What will the penultimate day hold?
