London fashion week was a whirlwind of shows, and we had a great time covering them. Besides being an incubator for original fashion, London designers are also not afraid to work a LOOK on their models, making for the best beauty-ogling of all the fashion weeks.

We heard from our friends over at Lucky that Hilary Alexander, the beloved and now “retired” fashion director of the Telegraph, was filming a fashion reality show called Behind the Seams. Since we’re here in London and have seen Hilary at practically every show this week, we decided to ask her about it.
