No vases are in sight

Artist Begüm Boré on the abundance of petals and pets at London Fashion Week

In London, there are lots of pets and petals, yet, despite being put on pedestals, no vases are in sight for any of the flowers. So I've brought some. At Markus Lupfer, flowers are crowned. At Ashish, flowers are dethroned. They become Laura Ash-eys. A snake which manages to rise from these ashes, I mean, Ashish, leans on Tom Ford and then Todd Lynn.At Burberry, there is this lost dog from Mulberry shaking off roses and The Pet Shop Boys who've put the pedal to the metal to pick up the dog and the petals. Chris Lowe's wearing a Burberry rain hat? Indeed, lovely weather for ducks, I mean, DAKS.
