Camilla Kerslake's PFW party diary: A glittering night at Balmain

Party people: James Goldstein, Oliver Schibi, Hofit Golan and Camilla Kerslake

Thursday was a whirlwind day of fittings and shows, the highlight being yours truly sat in a bidet wearing a €1600 Balmain gown for the amazing (and truly unique) faith connexion show.

Our evening began with the 'Codex Seraphianus' exhibition sponsored by stunning Parisian atelier Azzedine Alaia. The setting was stunning and the pieces sublime but the night was young.

Next to George the 5th hotel for drinks. We noticed hordes of fans gathered outside for a glimpse of Kendall or Gigi as we glided through golden doors and over white marble to the snug and stylish salon.

Were serenaded by a stunning jazz quartet and tequila was the drink of choice. Though at €90 per shot, they certainly weren't plentiful.

Next to Manko for Balmain's glittering after party.

The catwalk show earlier in the day was an absolute dream so we were all looking forward to the evening’s delights and we certainly weren't disappointed.

We were treated to a fabulous, completely hilarious burlesque show. Olivier Rousteing giggled over chilled Crystal with muses Sara Sampiao and Jordan Dunn, while post performance Winnie Harlow, a vision in red, was the first on her feet to get the dancing started.

Pascal Dangin, Balmain's genius creative director regaled us with tales of model mishaps and fashion faux pas in days gone by.

This singer left at around 2am but the party was still going strong, the champagne was flowing and models were dancing on the velvet seating surrounding the tables.

Outside, wannabe party goers thronged the Avenue Montaigne but with more events the following day I turned in by 3am.
