Waiting and waiting…

Dear September 10th. Could you hurry up and arrive already please? I have allocated the entire day to fashion and Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out and have already pencilled some appointments in my Hello Kitty Smythson diary. I’m definitely making the Gap pop-up shop in Carnaby Street my first stop-off to see what visual delights Garance Dore is going to magic up with her photos, illustrations and limited edition T-shirts (above) and I’m planning to end the day at COS to take advantage of its free champagne and late closing (it’s open ’til 11pm). Then I will spend a good while at Liberty where all theseevents are taking place including an Hermes scarf-styling workshop from Vogue’s Emma Elwick (she who styles their phenomenal More Dash Than Cash pages).

Then I need to find time to watch Lucinda Chambers zhuzh up the windows of the Giorgio Armani windows in Sloane Street (6.45pm, 37-42 Sloane Street, SW1), witness Kate Phelan in action styling a Vogue shoot at Chanel on Bond Street (173, New Bond Street, 7-8pm), sample the exclusive black ice-cream from The Icecreamists at Selfridges (400 Oxford St, W1), watch Jourdan Dunn styling Topshop shoppers (8-9pm, Topshop 216 Oxford Street, W1) and help Rupert Sanderson with his giant shoe installation (33 Bruton Place, W1).

As if Thursday 10th won’t be mad enough, Oxford Street has decided to piggy back on the occasion with its first ever High Street Fashion Week starting today. Frankly, I’m right behind it. Let’s pick this economy up off its feet!

    It all sounds fab – except I'm probably not going to make anything as I'll be editng my film. Sigh stuck in Davies St with fun and frolics taking place at a stones throw.

    I might try and make Cos – I'll need some refreshment.

    I am exhausted just reading the schedule! Sounds like a lot of fun though.

    I want that t-shirt – it's gorgeous!

    I recall a Colette/Gap pop-up shop in New York last year so it's great that they're finally doing something cool in London.

    I miss Carnaby street!

    I live on the wrong coast. I'm sorely jealous of all who can attend any of these events.

    The best I could do was live vicariously by ordering the t-shirt.
