Paul Costelloe opened London Fashion Week A/W 2011 yesterday, as per usual. It was a riot of colour and a bloody wonderful start to the day - with illustrations by Lesley Barnes and Maria Papadimitriou!

I'll never say a bad word about Mr Paul Costelloe. His was the first on-schedule show I ever saw, back in 2008. It was a disaster - you can read my review here (my have we come a long way with our fashion week reviews). Despite that particular experience being pretty traumatic, I always look forward to what he'll present us each season, and I genuinely believe he's the most underrated designer on the schedule - AND he always gets that hideous graveyard 9.30am opening slot. Anyway, enough of the pity, I'm sure he gets along just fine.
