Well it’s not actually show day because obviously I was super duper busy so today is the afternoon after and I am feeling slightly worse for wear.
So I shall start from the beginning.
I arrived at the office, bright eyed and bushy tailed very excited for my second London Fashion week as part of the House of Holland team.
I arrived to find out that I had been picked out of the other interns to go and shoot the look book before the show,yes I know BEFORE the show are these people mad!?!?! Well yes that did run through my mind but it all strangely ran smoothly. The model was completely gorgeous and so sweet throughout so it was a pleasure to shoot. Here are some behind the scenes shots of the shoot...
The rest of the team began to arrive a little after 3pm along with the makeup, hair and nail artists and of course the models.
6pm I took my position at the door ready to greet and seat celebrities
and key buyers, this really was amazing, to see the paparazzi reaction
and to actually get a good nosey at the celebrities, particularly my
idol ALEXA CHUNG, was so-so amazing! An army of Henry's even made an appearance...
The show went without a hitch and got rave reviews, it wasn’t my favorite collection as I really do believe that House of Holland do Autumn Winter much better than they do Spring Summer but it was great.
During the show I had a great view, stood directly opposite the front row, which sat Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof, Poppy delevigne,
Kelly Osborne, Leigh Lezark and Nicola Roberts and it was fun to see
them dancing in their seats to the fun soundtrack Henry has specifically
made for his show.

Once the show was over we packed up the collection and sent it back to the office, racing back there ourselves to unload it into the studio.
there and everything was unpacked there was time for a quick outfit
change and then it was back on to the Filling Station at St Pancras for
the after show party.
The party was extremely intimate with only close friends and family invited so it was a really lovely affair.
The filling station is a really cool riverside bar, which sell THEE best
pizza’s with THEE most weird and wonderful toppings, Pumpkin and Brie
Pressecco and Beer on tap for the entire night it was safe to say that
there wasn’t a sober fashionista in sight,just the way Henry wanted it.
