Dazed's team round up each day of London womenswear Spring Summer 13 with their thoughts. At the end of day one, we speak to the magazine's deputy fashion editor, Elizabeth Fraser-Bell...
Dazed Digital: What are you excited about over the London schedule? Elizabeth Fraser-Bell: Lucas Nascimento, Christopher Kane, SISTER by SIBLING, Craig Lawrence... and burger bellies in-between shows.
DD: What were your highlights of today? Elizabeth Fraser-Bell: There were a lot! SISTER by SIBLING's ascension to another echelon, a beautiful show complete with X-Ray Spex remixed on the soundtrack. I loved Fashion East's dramatic 50 St James location and the new guard of Claire Barrow and Ryan Lo – as well as Maarten's Tesco bags and power ballads seating music. We were sat next to Chris Eubank, which was a real moment! The new McQ store on Dover Street was great – it features a Minority Report-style techno table that allows you to project the catwalk show onto the wall and email looks to friends. Plus, instead of mirrors, they have a wall mounted digital screen you can email off directly, so your mates can convince you to buy whatever you've tried on even if they're not with you. Finally, Princess Julia's watercolour design for James Long was really cool, an inspired collaboration!
DD: Photo Fashion Barbie hung out with you most of the day. Apparently everyone wanted to be seen with her... Elizabeth Fraser-Bell: Yes! She was so much fun. She got to hang out with all the designers, stylists and editors. Plus she loved brunch at Fortum's and going to Fashion East.
