The last time I saw Toby Howarth it was Hallow’een. The seven years old ingenuous angel asked, “Haven’t you come on your broomstick?’ It wasn’t difficult to guess the sort of thing his aunt and mother had been saying about me!
I’m superstitious about wearing black when visiting children, so I expect he thinks I’m at least a white witch!
Because I’m going to see him again, en route from London, I’ll be clad in shades of blue from head to toe. I did plan on wearing ‘Le Casual de Marithe Francois Girbaud’ in gris et noir for the Burberry A/W show in Kensington Gardens.
Must try to get to Sassoon’s on way to the 2pm Fashion bash. I need to have a look for the Anne et Valentin ‘Objet 3’ spex now necessary for the little blue-stockinged teacher rather than the post-Chanel, Parisienne, fashion writer!
If Christopher Bailey spots me at the show, in close-up, maybe his next collection will be the look this strange little narcissist can adopt whether as witch, blue-stocking or fairy godmother in glasses.
Rushing off to Dorset means I’ll miss the Isabella Blow at Somerset House but here she is, above left, in a scene from ‘FASHION MEDIA PROMOTION the new black magic,’ with another wonderful maverick Anna Piaggi! I will fantasise a meeting with them on the train!
