#LFW - Q&A WITH ALEXANDRA SHULMAN AT THE PLAYBOY CLUB

The last day of LFW was grim and rainy (surprise surprise) but ended on a high. Me and Jen were fortunate enough to attend a Q&A with the editor in chief of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman - big thanks to M&C Saatchi PR. We headed over to the Playboy Club where we were treated to canapes and cocktails by gorgeous Playboy bunnies. Very unexpected to have the editor of Vogue talking in the Playboy club, but I couldn't have chosen a better venue - it was awesome!

I sat in awe for what seemed like ten minutes but was closer to an hour listening to the lovely Alexandra Shulman talk about fashion - everything from how London Fashion Week has evolved to the British High Street. Lets face it, My preconception of what Alexandra would be like couldn't have been further from the reality, not at all the cold scary dragon woman I was expecting (we've all seen the Devil Wears Prada), but a warm, relatable lady - not to mention incredibly chic wearing a Simone Rocha dress and Nicolas Kirkwood heels.

Alexandra had a lot to say on the subject of London Fashion Week, how it has evolved from being somewhat of a mess into a world renowned fashion event with amazing designers such as choosing to showcase their collections here as opposed to New York or Paris. Of course, having only attended LFW the past two seasons I have no knowledge of what LFW used to be like - but the transformation she helped bring about to the event is definitely a success judging by what I have enjoyed!

All in all, it was a pleasure listening to Alex - think we might be close enough for nicknames now ;) . I came away from the evening thinking about fashion in a different way,  feeling like (or hoping) a little bit of her wisdom rubbed off on me.
