I am distracted by a wedding dress photoshoot on my way to Gyunel's show at The Savoy and veer in via the wrong entrance, barely making it in time for the show. When I do finally enter, out of breath, it's to the sound of crackling flames.

Supermodel Jodie Kidd is one of the well-known faces in the front row and the circular catwalk makes for a refreshing change to the usual straight up, straight down.
