How do designers celebrate the end of London Fashion Week? At Harper's Bazaar's closing party! The shindig - also hosted by Tanqueray Gin and Johnnie Walker Gold Label - was held at Mayfair private members' club Mark's and was a merry wind down after five days and 52 shows.

While Christopher Kane caught up with Erdem and Shaun Leane, Thandie Newton chatted to Daphne Guinness and Jacquetta Wheeler giggled with Stephen Jones.

Meanwhile, Roksanda Ilincic said she was happy with how her (completely beautiful) show had went and sweetly added she would be relaxing by having lots of cuddles with her daughter before heading to Paris.

Alice Temperley said she was also going to Paris and was looking forward to the seeing McQueen's collection.

Chatting about London Fashion Week, Yasmin Le Bon - in an incredible Roberto Cavalli jacket - confided she loved Jonathan Saunders' collection but her favourite shows were Preen and Peter Pilotto. She added that she might go to Milan and Paris for the shows and if she did it would be a "last minute" thing.

Leith Clark - stylist, editor of Lula magazine and senior fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar - was working at the start of LFW for Sophia Webster and Orla Kiely but managed to catch some of the shows and liked what she saw. She enjoyed Simone Rocha's collection but her favourite was Erdem's. "I feel like I've shopped a lot in my head over the past few days," she added.

After more cocktails, mini bowls of risotto and cheese on toast canapés, cabs were called and just like that London Fashion Week was over. Until September...
