I remember the first time I went to London Fashion Weekend so clearly. I was 12 years old and I’d saved up all of my pocket money to buy a ticket. I’d been obsessed with working in fashion since I watched a catwalk show on TV when I was 8 years old. The glamour, the beautiful people and the buzz of backstage, I couldn’t believe you could actually have a job in this world. I persuaded my mum and sister to come along and it was everything I hoped it would be. Being in the hub of the city surrounded by fashion insiders was so exciting and the atmosphere was electric, I loved every second of it.

I felt exactly the same 10 years later when I was backstage at London Fashion Week dressing the catwalk models at Jaeger, Peter Pilotto and House of Holland in between uni lectures. The days were spent chasing after naked glamazons, ripping out insoles when the shoes were too big and fending off the paps, while the nights were spent partying with the fashion set. It was the best time of my life and I’m so grateful that I got to do it for three seasons.

    Hi Jessica, I love your blog and I am also very excited about London Fashion Week Festival.
    I went to London Fashion Weekend for the first time back in 2007 when I had just moved to London. I returned every year until I left London a couple years ago. Now I am back in London for that precise weekend and bringing a friend who’s never ever been to London. So it would be amazing to be able to show her the best of London and to spend a day at the London Fashion Week Festival.
    Maybe see you there!
