My only fashion show this season was Burberry...

 (and in all honesty, the only one I care about)

Christopher Bailey housed the fashion elite - Vogue's Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld, Mario Testino, Deep Kailey, Hamish Bowles and the new era of front-row-fashion-celebs such as Alexa Chung, S.J.P, Serena Williams, Andy Murray and Cat Deely.

Despite the show being effortlessly spectacular, I feel that it was dominated by the front row. Do I really need the celebrity status to confirm or approve that the show will be good - are they the equivalent of the traditional 5 stars? Am I looking to much into this? Yes!

Nonetheless- pierced leather, petite dresses and un-walkable 8 inch heels have quite rightly appeared on my wish list. (Note: for the model who took her heels off-like...c'mon who cares if you can't walk in them be grateful you tried them on!!!...or just settle for a Naomi)

I left the show with one phrase in my head-
'To DIE for daaarlin!'

No sign of  GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY last night. 

What a shame, I had some of my professional questions ready to ask
1) What's your best skate trick?
2) If you could skate anywhere-where would it be?
3) What's next...?
4) What did you have for breakfast?
I was even on Google Translate- translating it all and then writing the script out in russian! When, I finally came to the conclusion (mainly the brutal reality) that I'm not multilingual, and  that there was no hope with google, I decided my only possible option was to ring pretty much anyone who I thought could or would perhaps know someone in London who could speak Russian ANDD who would like to accompany me to the exhibition. Desperate times? Hell Yes! 

Regardless, of Gosha's whereabouts at the time of his Private View, the exhibition was fresh, new and exciting. 14 nameless photos spread throughout the tiny gallery in Farringdon which was packed to the street. 

Here are my favourite photographs!

This is just what I wanted to see, an insight to Russian youth and one of the most inspiring artists/photographers/designers/younameit at the moment-G.Rubchinskiy!
