It’s September which can only mean one thing – the spring/summer 2014 collections making their debut at Fashion Week. If you’re lucky enough to be heading to some designer shows this month, make sure you don’t leave the house without our top 5 essentials:

Notebook. Go old school this Fashion Week – you’ll need to stay on top of the trends and write down what you see, but some of the show lighting isn’t always ideal. Take a notebook to make notes of what really grabs your attention during the show. Christian Lacroix arty notebook, £12

Camera. For when all the hyperbolic adjectives in the world won’t do, rely on your camera to capture an unforgettable new-season piece. A picture does speak a thousand words, after all! Nikon D5200 SLR camera, £759.95

Concealer. Getting up early to queue and staying up late to blog about the day’s shows on repeat for five days can take its toll on your skin. While we can’t physically put more hours in the day, it is possible to look well rested with the help of a good under eye concealer – oh and lots of water! Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat highlighting pen, £25

Flats. We know you want to wear your newest, highest and sparkliest heels – and maybe for the first few days you will – but don’t leave home without a pair of flats. Running from one show to another is no easy feat in heels – trust us on that one! Jeffrey Campbell studded ballerina pumps, £125.71

Phone. It goes without saying that your phone will be your best friend during Fashion Week. It will be your camera, your diary, your contact book, your alarm clock and more. Take a charger with you in case you find a nearby café that lets you refuel, or just drop it off at the Press Tent in Somerset House to get fully juiced. iPhone 5, £529
