The first of its kind took place in London 2 weeks ago.
And like any proper fashion show ‘WHO’ is sitting on the FROW is just as important as what comes down the catwalk
. GKFW didnt disappoint with a mix of hip models, aristocracy, actresses, wags and cool musicans.
We spotted some serious fashion everything from Chanel to CHLOE, Maje to Michael Kors. Louboutinto Nickolas Kirkwood.On the FROW were :
Model Portia Freeman,
who as an ambassador for GKFW was present everyday. Across the days we spotted her in Chloe’s
spring pastels and Michael Kors red/black striped 7/8th trousers with towering heels. We love the fact that, as the evening wore on she slipped into a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo ‘Vara’ pumps. Her husband, who I was practically rubbing elbows with is Pete Denton of the Kooks. I have no idea about whos-who in the music biz.
Actress Bodil Blain and her daughter were papped as they jumped out of a cab, then inside her daughter legged it across the catwalk mid show to Jemma & Jodie Kidd. Jodie’s handsome little fella Indio was trying to join the catwalk & Jodie spent most of her time trying to wrestle him to a seat.
Actress Camilla Rutherford, who we saw later that same night presenting an award at the Rodial Beauty Awards
Saskia Boxford had a to-die-for pair of Nicholas Kirkwood. .
As always, Emily Evans owner of 9London
looked effortlessly cool in Chanel and Jimmy Choo’s.
naturally looked striking throughout the course of the weeks events.Louise Nichol of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia @BazaarArabia editor-in-chief and former editor of Grazia Middle East looked impossibly gorgeous and was there with her tiny new baby and husband. Blogger Heidi Raeside founder of Tuesday’s Child
was also there rocking laid back style. While Olcay Gulsen of SuperTrash
fame looked uber cute. Uber stylist Bay Garnet was also there with her kids.Alex&Alexa’s own Senior Buyer, Vanessa Benedict caught out eye in her stylish take on the tux. She looked excellent in Maje and Sergio Rossi heels.

The kiddos jumped in the photo-booth(as did we later on!) and had their nails painted at the Little Bu
