Mulberry Party at Claridges

“This is the best fashion party EVER” shrieked an exuberant young man (at nobody in particular). He was right. Mulberry hosted their party in the same location as their show, Claridges. Pastel-coloured balloons filled every room, apple cocktails were proffered at every turn as gleaming carousel horses looked on.

Echoing the fairground theme of the luxury brand’s earlier salon-style presentations, the fun-packed party featured a candy floss booth, a (temporary) tattoo parlour, hook-a-duck (on which I won a bow-shaped Mulberry bracelet-YES!) and great DJ-ing from Mike Pickering and Jeff Leach. Friendly Fires performed live and cool frontman Ed agreed that Mulberry’s shindig was indeed “not bad for a fashion party.”

Everyone loves an excuse to let their hair down mid-way through the fashion week and celebrites are no exception. Fashion VIP's in attendance included Alexa Chung, Leigh Lezark, Pixie Geldof, Daisy Lowe, Natalie Press, Tolula Adeyemi, Tamsin Egerton, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts, Kaya Scodelario, Eddie Redmaine, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lady Victoria Harvey, David Walliams, Ben Grimes, Caroline Seiber, Chanel Iman, Yasmin Mills, Amber Le Bon, Daniel Merriweather, Erin O'Conner, Lara Stone, Kirsty Hume and Trish Goff.

Mulberry’s whirl of fairground fun included was a breath of fresh air in the midst of the poser-heavy parties of late.
