|My fabulous Mulberry invitation|
|Set design featuring the star of the show|
I left my husband looking after Evie today while I eloped to London Fashion Week to watch the Mulberry s/s 2011 show. Mulberry is always one of the highlights - not only because of the sumptuous leather bags - because of the delicious clothes by the label's hugely talented creative director Emma Hill. Inspired in part by children's novel, 'The Secret Garden', the show (set in Claridges) had a glorious childlike theme. Evie would have adored it. Giant paper roses decorated the catwalk and cut-out paper dolls lined he entrance. There was even a bulldog on the catwalk wearing a Mulberry doggie mac, naturally. Despite the childlike inspiration, the clothes were all grown-up and polished including high-waisted tailored trousers, chestnut-coloured trench coats and oversized versions of the best-selling Bayswater bag. Mulberry fans will be salivating. I attach a few examples for you stylish mamas.
