After a day of Sinéad O’Dwyer ‘s delicate knits, Huishan Zhang’s Hitchcock heroines and Di Petra writhing on a rock, what better way to celebrate than with a big ol’ fashioned knees up? ES Magazine joined Perfect Magazine for an unforgettable bash, raising a glass (who are we kidding, it was more like 12...) to British fashion talent at the newly revamped Dorchester Hotel.

And what did the guests bring to the party? Red carpet style which very nearly outdid the runways themselves. Lisa Rinna arrived, her usual reserved understated self, sporting huge blackout sunglasses and avant garde shoulder pads. Whilst Dame Joan Collins sparkled in a sublime sequin overcoat, matching handbag and heavy diamond earrings.

Damien Hurley, Lennon Gallagher, Lily James, Verner Panton and Clara Padgett were amongst the many famous faces who attended the late-night shindig and gave us a taste of the next fun-fuelled week to come.

Inside— the swanky suites were alit with theatrical candles and decorated with exquisite floral displays, plush velvet sofas and a diamanté disco ball piano. Guests were served margaritas and canapés (neither of which lasted very long) before dancing the night away beneath the crystal chandeliers and mirrored ceilings.

Setting the scene was Bestley with some ultra-cool curated beats, followed by Horsemeat Disco, Hale Zero and Joe Goddard. And if that wasn’t enough, Lou Hayter’s dynamic dj decks kept the party going right through the night and into the early hours (sleep deprivation and sore feet are mandatory at London Fashion Week of course!).

Didn’t get an invite? Don’t worry there’s always next time. For now, check out some pictures from the party...
