25 February 2011 – Nothing makes you rethink your daily outfit selection quite like the wall of flashing cameras, fashion bloggers, designer-clad socialites, and models in desperate need of a cheeseburger (or six) standing between you and your two o’clock Medieval lecture. Fashion Week arrived by storm at Sommerset House, and with it, London’s already fashion-savvy public transformed overnight. Normal lectures were interrupted by the pulsating bass of the catwalk just outside The Courtauld’s doors. Witnessing the effect of the week’s festivities trickling into the style-choices of our Courtauld comrades (and ourselves), Anna and I scrounged up a few pounds from our photocopying-depleted wallets and found ourselves seated, second row, at this season’s Fashion Weekend and Review. Recovering from our exciting excursion in Oxford the day before, a night of fashion, food, and fun continued the cultural hype of a well-spent week in the UK.
