Harvey Nichols laid on snow cannons especially for its S/S12 press day which made us long for the season to come when we can wear its uber-covetable Spring/Summer labels all the more.
2011 Fashion Fringe winners Fyodor Golan’s intricate yellow flower fest of a gown took pride of place but for those who can never dream of owning such a creation, there were balloon blooms from Twistina the balloon lady (my bouquet perfectly matches my sofa!)
For birds of paradise and jungle blooms look no further than Joseph Altuzarra’s vibrant prints fluttering across sporty perforated buttersoft leather dresses and positively skip on the wild side in snakeskin pumps by Alexandre Birman worn with Felicity Brown’s diaphanous decon ballet skirt.
I also made eyes (Meadham Kirchhoff style) at Rachel Allegra’s tie-dye spider tees and a divine pelmet powered leather jacket by Cushnie et Ochs while having my eyes given the glitter treatment by Glittermasque’s brilliant Helen Lewis.
