London Fashion Week Day 1 SS 2014

Friday morning. Snowy woke and gave Pandemonia a gentle nudge, time to get ready. This was their first day out during London Fashion Week.

In the taxi Pandemonia checked the new hairdo in the mirror and re-arranged the new dress & Snowy's collar as they pulled up to Somerset House, for the 11am Felder & Felder show.

The show was taking place in a newly created space, deep down in the bowels of Somerset house.

This location in P's high heels proved to be more akin to Jules Verne "Journey to the Centre of the Earth".

At the space Pandemonia and Snowy were nestled between Hilary Alexander and Premier Model's new addition Harriet Verney.

Harriet was in a fabulous feathered dress.

The show theme was 'underwater', textures reflecting the ocean bed, coral reef and the odd reptile print thrown in for good measure.

Snowy, imagined Harriet entering the spirit of the concept and diving in like a hungry Humming bird, she didn't though - her wings were well and truly clipped.

Friday morning, Pandemonia and Snowy visited The Bloomsbury Set event in the magnificent BloomsburyCentral Baptist Church.

Here P&S avoided the stairs and took the lift to the lower ground floor to view the Spring/Summer 2014 collections by fashion and accessory designers;

Age-Of Reason-Studio: Duecci ; Karen K: Mymink : Mylovemyleggings: Nico Didonna: Pritch-London and 3 star ex graduates Andreas Feet Martinsen, Helena Dillon and Jorn Olsthoorn

And sample the Lavolio delicious hand made confectionery.

Ali Taylor Mapletoft from Ageof Reason Studio, cornered Pandemonia and Snowy and thrust into P's hand an invite to the Karen K show,

Upon which Pandemonia and Snowy produced their own. The Lebanese supermodel Karen El-Khazen is a very dear pal and they wouldn't have missed the Karen K runway show at 4pm for anything

Karen K show was an entertainment extravaganza; models with elongated sleek pony tails created by L'Oreal Professionnel UK hair art team, spearheaded by Luke Plucukrose & Tom Berry from Saks.

The girls came strutting out in bright swimmer, accessorised by Karen K shoes, bags and cuffs.

Much to the delight of Karen's ritzy customer base.

For the finale, Karen ditched her swimsuit for a floor length red dress with Gladiator sandals, perfect for hot sultry nights in exotic places.

Although, the introduction of a model in a gas mask threw poor Snowy for six.


Post show, Pandemonia was introduced by Cristina Polizzi to there latest fan, Massimiliano Mazzanti, the Italian General Consul.

At The Charing Cross Hotel a group of designers were showcasing in the Betjeman Suite.

Pandemonia and Snowy had only just sat down and out popped designers collection from AGA, Dee Duce, Gianni Lilliu, Wajahat Mirza and Yuvna Kim

Yuvna detailed crafted unlined lace dresses, were a bit risque for 4 year old Snowy's innocent eyes.

At the VIP cocktail party afterwards, Pandemonia and Snowy met Iman Sid who declared "you're the most amazing looking couple I've ever seen"

P&S thought what a great compliment coming from the author of "Miss Manners" .

Then Snowy's head started nodding, a sign for home time and good night sleep so as to be fresh for the following day's 'a la mode gad about' .
