And my mood swung rapidly back round when I saw yesterday's Times fashion supplement.
Having recently retweeted a comment that 'the aviator is over, start saving for the studded biker', I was curious to see the jacket that had caused the stir. Given Burberry's recent forte in turning fashion heads I guessed it was one of theirs from the flurry, the model, and the rest of the look. And then my eye settled upon the jacket, a myriad of studs. More studs than you could shake a stick at. Gok Wan must be going into convulsions.
And I remembered why I wanted to be where I wanted to be. In the big city where it all happens. There's probably been a punk in Camden with that many studs on their jacket for years. The whole city is a canvas for the creative.
Oh, and a bit more from LFW - I am constantly astounded by the beauty of Mary Katrantzou's collections.

NB - The Times' Fashion Matrix also put the students that dress up and hang around Somerset House trying to get spotted as 'going down'. Ha. What a good job that I will only go as a super successful freelancer in the Year That Is Yet To Happen....
