If catwalk shows at London Fashion Week are displays of theatrical brilliance (big, dynamic, buzzing), then a look round the Designer Showrooms at Brewer Street offers a chance to observe fashion from the perspective of visitor in a museum exhibition: a calmer, more serene space for (deep) sartorial contemplation.
I often think of fashion as a little bit like an excitable, blithe butterfly flitting across a meadow: so very thrilling to track and plot its unexpected turns in a distractingly beautiful milieu. And an opportunity to be one of the first to see Spring / Summer 2016 lead butterflies was not to be missed!
