The London Whirl

-------

Last London fashion week was all about its 25th anniversary. This one? If there’s one thing certain to dominate this season’s reporting, it’s the startlingly swish caliber of social events taking place night after night. The big news draw is the BAFTAs, which take place on Sunday night at the Royal Opera House, just across the street from Topshop’s Covent Garden venue, which it lends out to New Gen designers. (That should cause an interesting tangle of guests that night.) For many years, there’s been a bizarre disconnect between film and fashion in this city—each industry performing its set rituals virtually oblivious of one another’s existence. For the first time, though, that duh factor might be on the way to being cured. The beginnings of a social entente between movie-award hopefuls and the British fashion community has been established by Friday’s pre-BAFTAs cocktail party co-hosted by Kate Winslet and Lucy Yeomans (pictured, right), chair of the British Fashion Council’s press committee. After the film awards red-carpet postmortem on Monday, it’ll be on to the next date: Natalia Vodianova’s Love Ball for her playground charity on Tuesday night. There, it will be possible to get an early reading of the effectiveness of the new wear-British initiative. There’s a lot of gown competition out there, of course, but any girl looking for something a bit younger and more original than a strapless mermaid could do worse than to check out the local talent.
