Of course, it didn’t take me long to appreciate the gorgeous designer outfits that were surrounding me, and the photo on the right is of me trying out the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Clutch, the gorgeous glitter clutch that Anya Hindmarch brings out each year, which is available in different colours. Those of you with sharp eyes will notice that the table on the left of the photo is bedecked with the Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton, a box clutch with a signature twig clasp which also is brought out each year in different colours and textures of leather.

So, on the left, there’s me (again) posing with the bronze DVF Lytton Clutch and also completing the look with Sportmax Ventura Wool Ribbed Hat, which I was also rather impressed by.

Another item that I really loved was the Tibi Cream Tuxedo Jacket with leather. This jacket, pictured on the right, has a shawl lapel which is actually made from black leather, together with a stunning lace lining. The jacket itself, which is made from a wool blend fabric, really combines different materials and textures in a most unusual and attractive way.
