Sow This Season

Like the slave employed to sit behind the Roman Emperor on his Imperial processions and whisper in his ear 'remember, you are mortal', some elements of London Fashion Week (which started today) prevent you from getting carried away with the sheer fabulousness of it all. Such as sitting behind an animatronic pig that has been 'sent' by Pop magazine to report on the collections. Most of the surrounding press at Julien Macdonald's show this morning, however, appeared too diverted by the free champagne -at 11am, people- the canary yellow gowns, bulging Swarovski-encrusted Speedos and mandatory fur protesters (on a fur-free runway?) to take much notice of Miss Piggy, sat on the front row, warning them that their work might equally be done by a celebrity muppet.
