I’m sure I don’t need to tell you what a hellish place Oxford Street is when you’re in a rush. Last Thursday, having legged it home from work to change (what, did you think I was going turn up in front of not one, but two living fashion legends in my standard office attire?)

The next forty-five minutes were a fashion writer’s dream come true – Mouret’s wonderfully Gallic way with words elicited more truisms, maxims and aphorisms than a whole fashion week’s worth of backstage interviews.
