❏ Sep 19: In the flurry of off-schedule London Fashion Week events Vice magazine sent onetime Blitz Kid, now international club deejay Princess Julia to review the Blow Presents line-up for Spring Summer 2012. Julia reports from St Luke’s Church on Old Street: “Eleanor Amoroso featured trails of thread and chunky strips of gigantic rope, precisely covering the girls’ modesty, but exposing almost everything else. Big knickers are essential here…”

➢ Julia’s pointer — “The kufi is seriously in”
