So it's the last flight home from London Fashion Week to catch up with my family and team, then it's straight off to Milan. I'm spending five days in Milan, and as always I’m not entirely sure how many shows there will be, but there will definitely be a tough schedule to get through.

I get off my flight and I'm straight to a model casting with my good friend Mariano from Major Model Management Milano. I'm shooting the next part of my Fashion Week pictures in the fashion capital – it’s so important to the whole project in having the support of a good modelling agency. Mariano never disappoints when it comes to finding models, and this time is no different. We book two models for Milan and one model for our Paris shoot next week.

I eventually end up working on seven shows in Milan, but the big one, which I am always so excited about, is Missoni (assisting Anthony Turner). This show is always a massive part of Milan Fashion Week and the pressure is on to make the hair look amazing. The look for the show is a wet looking head wrap which looks amazing but is time consuming, as each model has to be perfect. We have 40 models to get ready and three hours to do it!! With five minutes to spare, all the models are looking great and in line-up. The show gets an incredible response from the press and audience and its champagne all round - a job well done.

My final job in Milan is a VIP job for the lovely model, Karlie Kloss, for Vogue China's 10th anniversary party. I meet Karlie at her hotel and we decide on a casual hair-up, and she looks great. I quickly wish Karlie well, and with a car waiting I'm straight to the airport. With an early show in Paris in the morning, some shut eye is absolutely in order.

Last stop Paris.... Jason
