Hair-rasing adventures in London and Gucci part two!!

More fabulous fashion and hair.

Starting off the year as I mean to go on with more visits to London for fashion and other adventures my good friend Denise and I headed to the smoke again – this time we were off  to Somerset House – which is the home of London Fashion Week for an exhibition that showcases the work of Sam McKnight – the session hairdresser who has created the most amazing hairstyles for models. celebrities and fashion editorials since the 70’s.

It was like walking through a time line of fashion with his styling for Westwood on mannequins wearing the most amazing pieces from her collections, on to Vogue and magazine covers, a section on Lady Diana and then videos and a collection from Chanel Haute Couture. And a few hair styling goals too!!

A walk along Sloane Street to the Kings Road with regular stops to window shop in the many designer boutiques along the route we rested our weary feet at a fabulous French bistro that was like stepping into a corner of old fashioned Paris – Colbert of Chelsea.
