This season we experienced accessibility overload. Shows were streamed live over the internet, journalists twittered as it happened and bloggers posted reviews within minutes of the last walk.
Burberry Prorsum made history by simultaneously preselling outerwear online. A bold step towards closing the gap between the initial desire for a garment and the purchase, which of course, is what great fashion marketing is all about.
This season fashion week was laid out for everyone to watch and dissect; the presentation, communication, selling and intimate backstage moments. Will the availability of such information take away the unobtainable glint of fashion week? And with designers clambering over each other to be the most innovative in this evolving digital revolution, what can we expect of next season?

Gold skirt, Forever New
White T shirt, Country Road
Blazer, vintage find
Gold purse, vintage
I had a really good charity shop rummage on Saturday and found this vintage Cue blazer. Saving up to move to New York means I am on a tight budget (I'm getting pretty tired of pasta and sauce) I'm also pretty bad at the see it/ want it/ buy it thing but at least thrift shopping doesn't bankrupt you!

Socks, cut up tights from Witchery
The S/S 10 & A/W 10/11 catwalks featured a whole lot of socks under shoes and despite hunting for the perfect pair, couldn't find any so destroyed a pair of beautiful cashmere knit tights instead. Anyway, the effect is still there, and I didn't get quite as many stares as I thought I might when I wore these out on Saturday morning.
