From London, with love: LFW editor’s diary

From iconic faces at Burberry to Tracy Emin’s moving exhibition at White Cube Gallery, Acting Editor Billie Iveson recaps a whirlwind trip for London Fashion Week 2019.

Stay …
Rosewood Hotel in High Holborn is the most luxurious place to find respite in the city amidst the madness of Fashion Week. Beautiful suites, ample dining options and a spa to rejuvenate after racing around in the cold all day.

Shows …
Riccardo Tisci’s second collection for Burberry was a visual feast. Stella Tennant made a welcome cameo on the runway, and the two-room set design was a comment on the division of the class system in England and emphasised the split between ‘girl’ and ‘lady’.

Between shows …
Do not miss Tracey Emin’s emotive exhibition at White Cube gallery, and try and get your hands on tickets for All About Eve starring Gillian Anderson.

Taste …
Berners Tavern for steak, Kiln for amazing modern Thai food and sample the best gelato (despite the cold weather) at Gelupo in SoHo.
