Guests mingled among the Zaha Hadid sculptures and Damien Hirst paintings and the odd Sottsass structure. The authors of our book Tania Fares and Sarah Mower gave a speech thanking the assembled for all they had done to make the London fashion scene the best in the world. More on that in our next story.  For now enjoy some of the pictures - we’ll be adding more as they arrive on our facebook and instagram throughout the day.
