Accident at London Fashion Week

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Robb Young and I were on route to our friend Mei Hui Liu aka Victim’s fashion show when a car just drove right into Robb Young and I while we were crossing the street, Cromwell Road. The driver James Anthony Phillips sent Robb flying forward hitting his head on the driver’s fender and landing on his face while ripping his Helmut Lang trousers and rendering his blackberry useless. I went flying backwards and landed on my back. I suppose like all unexpected accidents we made a few mistakes. Although we got the dodgy driver’s details we failed to make him wait while we called the police. We were able to get up and walk to the first aid at the tents where Robb’s wounds were cleaned up. We called the police to come but after 2 hours wait they still did not appear. By then it was 20h pm and we both just wanted to return home, take a long hot bath and go to bed. So much for the FUTUREtense and the Mellissa party. I’m sure they were both great but ….
