Video: LCM AW14 Round-Up

13 January 2014

We did it. We survived last week's London Collection: Men AW14. Please, hold your applause.

With several shows and presentations to attend, from Margaret Howell to Katie Eary to Richard James, it was a week of much excitement including some important lessons that had to be learnt: if it's raining then don't wear a pizza hat unless you like soggy cheese and don't expect there to be food or an umbrella in your goodie bag at shows as you will always be disappointed.

When we weren't busy awing over the amazing clothes and boys at shows like Matthew Miller, James Long and Christopher Shannon, we were catching up with models in the street for interviews, hanging out backstage, and updating our audience on all social platforms from the press room. The three days of LCM have all become a blur now but luckily, we also managed to find the time to create the video below which has allowed us to remember some of our favourite moments with some of our favourite boys, and re-live it all.

We have to say that despite the rain and the late nights - we are truly looking forward to next season. See you there!
