Is it just me, or does Fashion Week just feels so un-London? It's as if we didn't already have our look worked out in skinny trousers and ruffled hair. So on that note, let's roll up the red carpet and roll out the 24th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction":
1) Has the descent of the international fashion cognoscenti left you searching for a calming option for your style fix? React by heading to the Face of Fashion exhibit which focuses on the portraits of five outstanding fashion photographers from Europe and America. This exhibition coincides with the unveiling of the official new portrait of Moss. National Portrait Gallery, 15 Feb-28 May, £8 (Oh, and click here to see Kate immortalised in wax).
2) Ashamed to admit a lingering curiosity about life as a real fashionista? React by heading to Frock Me! the vintage fashion fair where the entry fee is worth it just for the people watching - handbags at dawn for fashion magpies. Something for everyone, but leave reluctant shopping partners at home. Chelsea Town Hall, Kings Road. Sun 18 Feb (11am-5:30pm). £3
3) Excited by the Year of the Pig? React by heading to Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and of course, Chinatown; the most fun to be had is in following all the different lions and dragons as they dance outside different businesses. Also check out what the year holds for you in the Chinese horoscopes over at the British-Chinese website Dim Sum. Chinese New Years Parade. 11am. Sun 18 Feb.
