What do they say – Give a woman a house, she’ll make a home? Well, give a woman a Hyundai i20 over Fashion Week, and she’ll make a Death Star on four wheels and one 22-year old driver very, very uncomfortable. This, like many things in life – including adding soy sauce to everything – I blame my mother. Growing up, mornings were a battle of which sibling can out-stupid the other one, starting with putting shoes on before trousers, smearing toothpaste all over our faces and pretending to shave… etc. This led to my poor mother having to shovel us into the car along with 2 x cereal bowls, school outfits, homework, toothbrushes… (at one point I believe there was a pillow fort in the car), and she’d drive with one hand while the other ‘conditioned the air’. Fast forward to SS15 LFW, I inhale a plate of scrambled eggs in the car while deciding on an outfit, and every day there’s a new pile of clothing spilling out the passenger door pocket. At the end of Day One I get a makeup session at the Apartment with Max Factor discovering the new Skin Luminizer Foundation, and from that point on I use the tinted passenger window to accomplish the ‘dewy look’ in the ensuing mornings, just how Caroline Barnes taught. My 22-year old driver awkwardly avoids using the rear-view mirror (apparently a touch worse than drink-driving) during my changing room sessions, but we somehow always manage to make a split-second eye-contact just when my head is halfway through a sweater… Thankfully we slice through morning traffic and I arrive at the first show of the day with a Aquafresh breath and lotion behind my ears.
Stay tuned for some of my favourite collections so far…
Huge thanks to Hyundai UK for a ‘5 more minutes, mum’ partnership, please forgive me for any coco puffs between the seats.
