Fashion School students walk the runway with Patrick McDowell

What an evening for The Fashion School! Esme, Sophia, Inez and Reagan walked for the wonderful @patrick__mcdowell in his Spring/Summer 2023 show on Monday night. ‘Marie Antoinette goes to Liverpool’ was the theme, bringing in Patrick’s loving personal attachment to his hometown and the story of the last crowned queen of France. Sumptuous luxury sustainable garments in such positive spring brights, an inspiration to our children.

Patrick is designer in residence at @jcalondon The Jimmy Choo Academy situated in THE most gorgeous historic Grade 1 listed Georgian building at 20 Hanover Sq. Thoughtful as ever, Patrick and Anne Marie had arranged a little Swarovski sewing project to keep our tinies occupied during rehearsals - look at those crystals! 14 year old @lylabea_m from our FashionLab Career course looked after the girls and what a total fashion experience for them. The stuff of little girls’ dreams.

The photos (some Patrick’s, some Lyla’s fathers’, the blurry bad ones are mine of course) are of the girls eagerly watching waiting in Patrick’s studio for make up, that’s a treat for starters. The star studded show was a wow and the happiness generated in that impressive building night will never be forgotten. Thank you Patrick and team for thinking of us and making us all feel so special, my seat and @fortnums Fortnum & Mason goody bag were an unexpected and delightful bonus and it was a joy to see the collection and spend time in such a glorious setting.
