Designer Zoe Jordan’s show attracted a number of celebrities, including Kelly Brook, Jameela Jamil and Poppy Delevingne.

Brook was also in the front row for Turkish designer Bora Aksu’s show later in the day. She said afterwards: “I thought it was incredible.

“Really feminine, really floaty, it’s amazing.”

Asked what she thought of London Fashion Week, she said: “From what I’ve seen so far, I was in Zoe Jordan earlier, it’s inspiring, that’s why I like to come along and see. It kind of gets you in the mood. You get some good ideas.

“London’s always a hot spot really, people come here for films, theatre and I think a lot of fashion’s influenced by that and people in all areas are creative.”

Also in the front row was singer Kate Nash who said that Aksu was one of her favourite designers.

She said: “I’m a really big fan of Bora Aksu. Last season I saw my first show of his and I fell in love with it.”

Nash, who is to perform a secret gig as part of Fashion Week, said she was a regular each season.

She added: “I really love London (Fashion Week). I really like the sort of people it attracts, it has a real sense of fun.

“It attracts lots of freaks and weirdos, in the best way. It’s very individual and celebrates the outsider.”

Sixties icon Twiggy was in the front row of the sass & bide show. She said of British fashion: “It’s always been brilliant as far back as I remember.

“London’s London - we’re the best. What’s great about London is whether you’re talking about fashion, performance or art, we’ve always got an edge.

“London’s always had that special magic. You can’t really put your finger on it but it’s always been there.”
