London Fashion Week isn't all just parties, pretty clothes and people spotting, well, ok it is, but for some people that equals a LOT of hard work.

To celebrate the launch of designer Alice Temperley's collaboration with Filofax over fashion week we have persuaded some of the city's most hard working fashionistas to give us a sneak peek in to their packed LFW diaries.

Today, Madeleine Macey, Communications Director at leading British designer brand Temperley London, gives us her LFW survival tips and a snap of her hectic diary on Day Three of the shows…

WHAT IS YOUR LFW MUST-HAVE

My Temperley Filofax! I must admit, before our amazing collaboration I just ran around with a note book in my bag, but now Violet has everything; It’s my wallet too, nay, my life in my hands! Blackberry (Boring but true). Ipod speaker Doc – to keep all the girls going in the office. Paloma Faith sent us a signed copy of her album as a thank you to the team and we were so touched! Been playing all week.

WHICH SHOW DO YOU ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO

Todd Lynn. He is a dear friend and an incredible talent. I have been to almost every show since he launched unless we show on the same day.

AND WHICH PARTY

This season, The Green Cut launch at Somerset House; an environmental Green Carpet challenge set by Livia Firth. Alice has done an amazing gown alongside Stella, Tom Ford, Roksanda, Jonathan Saunders and other amazing names. All the gowns were beautiful.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE LFW MOMENT

Jalouse editor Jennifer Eymere. Unbelievable! I think PR’s worldwide should unite and ban that journalist from all shows. Who’s with me!
