Natalie Massenet has been made a Dame on the first day of London Fashion Week. The founder of Net-a-Porter and chairwoman of the British Fashion Council received the honour at Buckingham Palace from Prince Charles for her services to the fashion and retail industries.
Of course Massenet picked a perfect outfit for the ceremony – a cherry haute couture Ralph and Russo pencil skirt suit with an elegant belted waist. She paired it with an Anya Hindmarch ‘crisp packet’ clutch, a pearl headband and strings of pearls poking out under her jacket.
She said of her look: “I obviously thought very carefully about what I’m going to wear, I commissioned a suit from a designer called Ralph and Russo. I wanted to wear red as a celebration.” Ralph and Russo added a special touch to Natalie’s suit; a label which reads ‘Dame Natalie Massanet. 19.02.2016.’ See more pictures of her look here…
Have you ever wondered how London Fashion Week designers cope with the stress of putting on such spectacle? From Disney playlists to dancing, we delved into this eccentric world and found quite the selection of pacifying past times. Amanda Powney from Mother of Pearl says: “Around show time I cycle to & from the studio to clear my head as it’s so manic. I also try to start the day healthy with a large green juice but by the afternoon I’m hitting the full sugar coke!”
Fur protests spark trouble at Brewer Street
Fashion week’s only just started and it’s already been beset by controversy in the shape of nearly naked protesters causing a ruckus outside Brewer Street Car Park, the central hub of this week’s shows. Sporting just gas masks, knickers and duct tape over their nipples, the PETA supporters are protesting against the use of fur because of the exploitation of animals and the environmental impact of the chemicals used in fur treatment.
