Is it possible to have a pink-lemonade hangover?
9 million people tuned in to watch the return of Downton Abbey on Sunday night… I was not one of them, having received one of Mulberry's inflatable rubber ring invites to their LFW after show party at Claridges.
Following on from their early morning seaside shenanigans, the runway may have been gone but the retro Brighton Pier-esq theme was still out in full force.
There was a mechanical fortune teller (less like BIG’s Zaltar, more like a bodiless, creepy Anna Wintour…) who told me I ‘will be fortunate’ - things had started well! Carousel balloons, pinball and teddy bear grabber machines, slushy margarita’s, mini burgers, fish and chips and ice-cream all had the fabulous fashion crowd in high spirits.
Romola Garai, Fuchsia Sumner and Hayley Atwell were amongst the revelers, as was Twilight’s Kristen Stewart (two times in one day – we must be firm friends by now...?)
Thank you Mulberry!
(And thank you Sky Plus – Downton Abbey tonight!)
