London Fashion Week Day Three - Mulberry Party A/W 11

Following the late start of the Temperley show at The British Museum it was a race to get to The Claridges for Mulberry’s London Fashion Week after party. Private cars and taxis awaited outside the museum ready to accelerate from 1 to 60 so we (the fash pack) can avoid the notorious queue. I arrived at The Claridges at 9.30pm, and just in time as the queue had already built up. Mulberry had created a cute little nut hut outside the hotel for the guests serving nuts covered in chocolate. Yum. Arrive into a very busy Ball Room to hordes of celebs being interviewed and snapped, including Kirsten Dunst, Clemence Poesy, Gemma Arterton and later, Juliet Lewis arrived to name a few.
The woodland forest theme of rural pastimes and countryside pleasures is as recognisable as it was at the show. Huge toad stalls, trees decorated with birds and tea lights in the sky representing stars of the night on the ceiling of the ballroom gave this party an edge on others this fashion week. Party-goers were able to dance the night away while drinking organic cider and snacking on chicken and mushroom pies amongst other things. To keep the fun factor Mulberry had arranged for a photo set inside the garden shed where guests can choose which Fantastic Mr Fox mask they would like to pose in for their instant print photo. I went with the badger and then went back again for the fox. Highlight of the night had to be Juliet Lewis and Emma Hill taking to the garden shed for some fun photos. A few meters away skittles had been set up to play. Love the fun games theme. Knock down all 10 skittles over three tries and you won either a lovely Mulberry car key ring or a gold charm necklace.
Traditionally Mulberry London Fashion Week parties see a big act take to the stage. Friendly Fires played for S/S 2010 collection party and they were fantastic. This year Kele from Bloc Party took to the stage and got the crowd grooving. Being a huge Bloc Party fanatic, Kele’s voice is incredible and is immediately recognisable. He played a powerful and lively set and the party was golden.
One thing I have become accustomed to is queuing for LFW parties, PPQ was impossible on Friday and the queue for Mulberry was enormous by this point so on that note rather than chance the Temperley after party at The Groucho, I stayed at Claridges until the fun stopped at 2am. Best party by far.
