It was in the afternoon on 19th February, the last day of the Fashion week, everyone is tired. I was aiming to go to a fashion show but unfortunately due to the smaller venue and a very late request, I didn’t get an invitation. All fashionistas were queueing outside so I decided to browse for something exclusive at designer’s showrooms while it was quiet.

My readers and friends asked me many times how the fashion week venue looks inside and why it is so protected and secured to go in. I started filming and this is something that I will post as soon as I finish editing. While filming, just right on the corner I jumped on a lady, followed by some photographers. “She must be famous”, I thought. Her appearance at London Fashion Week was a surprise for me and I was very pleased when I recognised Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. She looked pretty in her navy long sleeve dress with white straps by British couturier Bruce Oldfield. Camilla gave me a smile and I greeted her.
