inside fashion week

So NYFW and LFW are all over, onto Milan and the teal explosion at Gucci (loved it), secretstylist couldn't be there because she has this thing called a full-time job, how incredibly "mafan" as Hong Kongers would say. I caught up with Helen, the Digital and Online Editor at Marie Claire, to give us the inside track on what went on at the shows in New York and London...

ss: Top 3 looks you loved...
Helen: Leather sleeves spotted in London and leather dresses in NY, basically if it's leather, it's in. Fur still huge with grey feathered faux fur seen on the great and the good in both cities and black shearling big everywhere. Platform shoes are a must have but really only the celeb frow can wear them - buyers and press sticking to wedges as so much running about between shows 

ss: Top 3 trends which we will be wearing in autumn/winter 2011...
Helen: AW11 all about the platform shoe, 70s style and textured knits. Tricky to wear but the more conservative among us can take inspiration from fine tailoring and new look classics as seen on Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera and Jaegar London

ss: Any comedy/memorable moments?
Helen: Police having to intervene in a bloggers brawl as someone tried to get into the BFC tent in London, Jameela Jamil and Jason Gardiner fatigue as everyone wonders what they're doing in the frow of yet another show, serious gusts of wind making several fashion eds flash their pants after Diesel Black Gold on Pier 94 in NY

ss: Most spotted item among the fashion crowds...
Helen: Most spotted, hot red or peonie pink lipstick, well tailored coats (it's been freezing), starbucks in hand (we're knackered!)

Thanks Helen...follow her on @HelensWitter
