A definitely chill has come over London in the past few days. Sunday’s race to the takeaway shop in bare legs was ill-advised. We might as well face it. It’s time to start looking for a winter coat. Sure I still have my old one tucked away in a dusty old suitcase under the bed. But half the fun in shopping for the new winter season is buying coats and boots. Why deprive yourself of this small joy? It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to update your coat collection - nowadays it’s easy to ...

I’m not a glamorous flier. No heels, pencil skirts or flawless post-flight eye-makeup here. I try – there’s the frantic application of mascara just before landing, the failed attempts to avoid any high-altitude alcohol and the inevitable G&T spillages down my, ahem, “essential” cashmere cardigan.

In amongst the new season trends, emerging designers and the odd a-list celebrity it's easy to forget the other side of fashion during LFW. Yes, I'm talking ethical fashion people. Something that we're all aware of but don't necessarily know a whole lot about. But ground-breaking fashion concept, Estethica is in the business of changing that.

The day began with an early dash across London to take in the collection at Clements Ribeiro. As expected for S/S'12 floral's made a usual appearance, but for the forthcoming season be sure to get your print fix with colourful paisley on silk. Don't be fooled though, there was nothing demure about it. French lace and clashing checker-board print added a much needed edge to this classic summer print; pairing floral dresses with black lace sleeves...swoon!

Crochet, fringe and patchwork knits were the trends to note on day one at London Fashion Week. And even though the fabric choices were decidedly wintry a bright and bold colour palette added a much needed summer feeling to proceedings.At Vauxhall Fashion Scout, the place to see the best emerging designers of the season, Malene Oddershede Bach in the aptly named Ones to Watch show, previewed snake print separates in clashing yellow and aqua. In contrast, Phoebe English showed how worki...

Last night the most note-worthy accessory being toted was a finely quaffed 'do. Yes, I was in attendance at Toni&Guy's preview of 'Hair Meet Wardrobe', their new four piece collection of must-have hair. The first of its kind, Toni&Guy officially kicked off a week of fashion, with notable celebs Olivia Palermo and Matthew Williamson taking seats front row. Whilst super model, Naomi Campbell introduced the show - cue camera flashes galore!

Most designer collaborations no longer have the power to excite me like they did many years ago when they were still a novelty. I remember when Stella McCartney for H&M caused a stampede of crazed women bent on trampling anyone that stood in the way. I was there to get stabbed by a hanger at Viktor & Rolf for H&M (seriously).

After a long day in the office dicussing new season trends, the must-have AW coat and platforms V brogues, I was in need of a little relaxation. The magic call came via John Frieda and my Editor, who couldn't make a hair appointment and bestowed the offer to me. As I made my way to the Cavendish Street salon, I was greeted by my stylist for the evening, Olivia. As a self confessed abuser of my hair, over the years I had been blon...

Autumn is almost upon us which means a new season, new trends, an updated wardrobe and a fresh new attitude. For me, fall has always been the time of year where it feels like a new beginning. January is too predictable and coincides with my massive comedown from December holiday cheer. And as much as I love the sunshine and warm weather of spring and summer, it always feels very fleeting.
