Whilst visiting threeASFOUR in NYC, I travelled over with my PR Ella Dror and another of our crew Craig Lawrence, who is taking part in the London Showrooms showcase. 21 UK designers have taken over the Penthouse of the Soho Grand Hotel for two days to personally introduce buyers and press to their SS12 collections. Sarah Mower hosts a brunch to launch the event which I attended earlier today to catch up with everyone and enjoy a view of the Manhattan skyline from this incredible vantage point. We are so lucky that it has been a heatwave and glorious sunshine since we got here! It's bizarre that many of the designers are based in studios so close to my own back in London, but none of us have free time to hang out at home. I havn't seen Michael Van Der Ham since last season and now we have finally found a chance to chill out all the way across the Transatlantic........... someone I first met and got to know whilst he himself was interning for threeASFOUR in NYC!! Michael is so busy that he has flown in for only the two days of the showrooms, so make the most of this opportunity to meet these new talents of the UK fashion world by coming to the Soho Grand .......
