The calm yet intimate atmosphere of London Collections: Men is much more my cup of tea than the hustle and bustle of London Fashion Week. There is a sense of exclusivity, but there is less pretentiousness and greater opportunity to talk with people, particularly during the presentations and at The Hospital Club.

Another key difference is in regards to street style. Unlike the ostentation of LFW outfits, most people's dress sense at LC:M comes across as natural or effortless, as if that is the very kind of fashion they wear throughout the year. Nothing too zany, just enviable style.

On the final day, the camera turned on me. The photo above was taken by Silviu Doroftei, fashion student and photographer, and one of the many people I had the chance to network with that day. My outfit represents a favourite style of mine, combining my two loves for smart attire and vibrant colours. Equally, my new Dr Martens once again proved their worth when trekking to and from venues, providing more comfort than the pointy shoes I would have normally chosen. Etre Fivepoint gloves were the final practical touch, keeping my fingers warm on a wintry London day.
