It is always a difficult outing to plan as Tickets come in right up until the last minute, so you never know what you may get and for which day, but it just so happened that I knew my blogging friend Pearl (from Fashion Pearls of Wisdom) had a ticket for the Caroline Charles show on Friday so we hatched a plan to meet up for a spot of Breakfast at "Simpsons in the Strand" before the show and indulged in a feast of Fried Banana's, Maple Syrup and Pancakes to set us up for the day (and to make us feel so sick we couldn't actually finish them) before we headed up the road to the BFC Tent at Somerset House for the Caroline Charles show.
Now whoever said the iphone 4 takes great pictures was lying, but as I found out today, good pictures depend purely on where you are either seated or standing inside the show space, but sadly all my pictures of this particular show had the models looking like extra terrestrial beings, just a bunch of white blurs strutting down the runway, so I really must invest in a decent camera at some stage!
The elegant daywear had me visualising a modern day Downton Abbey hosting a garden party on the lawn, which then gave way to sophisticated evening wear featuring heavy beading and sequins for the kind of grown up glamour we have grown to expect from a designer with over 40 years experience in the Fashion Industry. Evening wear was accessorised with large medallion necklaces and daywear was topped off with an assortment of jaunty straw boaters and panama hats to add a twist to an otherwise refined collection fit for a princess.
Which was your favourite look from the show?
