From the moment the first model strode out to the sound of Push It by Salt n Pepa, it was clear that this was knitwear, but not as we know it. Each model (including an almost unrecognisable Daisy Lowe) was identically bewigged and dripping in some impressively blinging gold jewellery.

Part pool party, part ghetto fabulous, the Cling of King stuck to what he knows best, with skinny knit swimsuits, bustiers and body con dresses. Sweet mint and lilac hues contrasted with sharp shots of raspberry and bright purple. The end result was an utterly fabulous, fun collection.

And what's this? A massive media scrum at Mark Fast? I was too dignified (lazy) to get up and see what all of the fuss was about, but I did see Pixie Lott's lovely face for a few seconds, surrounded by about a million camera phones. Then everyone went just as bonkers all over again when xoJane favourite Kate Nash rocked up, followed by Kelly Brook, who was entirely clad in leopard print.

As Phoebe did all the hard work this weekend, I've benevolently agreed to hit a few shows today so she can have a rest. Man, I'm nice. As always I entirely neglected to plan an outfit for today, so it was a pleasant surprise when I dragged with leather A-line skirt out of the dark depths of my wardrobe this morning, where it's been festering since last winter.

I've teamed it with a men's shirt from M&S, thick black tights and my trusty brogues from Russell and Bromley. I'd like to say I'm keeping things minimalist and simplistic, but mainly I'm genetically incapable for successfully accessorising.

You can watch a live stream of the shows here and we’ll be updating this page throughout the day with reports, pictures and random observations so keep checking back!
