No goodie bags. What's that about? I'm usually like 'What's in the goodie bag, oh my God!?'

Counting Dracula as their inspiration, the twin sisters behind Felder Felder sent out a collection that used contrasting panels of leather and wool, with sheer, ruffled and chained detailing in neutral colours, resulting in a range of young and edgy pieces that attracted the likes of Little Boots, Jaime Winstone and Erin O'Connor to the front row.
The underwear as outerwear trend popped up again in the form of bra tops over nude vests, corset bodices and ruffle-hip nude leather leotards, and it was the leather panels that popped up often throughout the collection that hardened up a series of otherwise feminine skater dresses. Tapping into the current mini-trend of gorilla style fashion, another highlight of the twins' AW10 collection was the fur-sleeved, long-line coats - the black version of which created the perfect finale to another fantastic show.
Last night, Bernard Chandran hosted his official London Fashion Week after-party. Instead of hosting the usual after show event in a club, the designer opted for an intimate meal in London's premier Malaysian restaurant, Awana.
"I really wanted to do something different and special," he said. "Rather than have a big party at a club I wanted to invite all of my friends and allow them to eat what I eat."
Guests, including Mr Hudson, Lady Gaga, Beverley Knight and Jimmy Choo, were served dishes such as chicken and beef satay and a variety of other traditional Malaysian specialities, all served by Awana's head chefs, Mark Read and Lee Chin Soon.
Chandran's collection received stellar reviews this season and continues to be a show not to miss, particularly by international press and buyers who continue to turn to the designer for creativity and innovation. His talents have earned him a following of celebrities ranging from Lada Gaga and Little Boots to Estelle and Rihanna.

When H&M launched its Jimmy Choo capsule collection on Saturday morning, plenty of willing shoppers were already waiting for their chance to get steeply discounted designer goods. Selling shoes that ordinarily can cost more than $1,000 for just $69 to $300 is bound to create a bit of chaos. One shopper queued up at a New York Fifth Avenue location admitted she was ready to get physical if needed, and though we don't condone violence, we pretty much expect that kind of madness, considering the situation.
It worked like this: H&M allowed groups of shoppers, taken in 20 at a time, to shop like crazy for 10 minutes. (For shoppers who had lined up overnight or traveled hours to reach a store, we can imagine their focus might have been off.) Employees gave out flyers labeled 'Instructions on How to Shop the Collection' and yelled the number of remaining shopping minutes through bullhorns.
