FASHION VOWS: In the thick of London Fashion Week, milliner Stephen Jones and his partner of 25 years, Craig West, quietly tied the knot at the Chelsea Town Hall in London. “The registry office had a last-minute cancellation, and called Stephen and said, ‘It’s either Monday or you wait another six months’, so they just did it,” said a spokesperson for the milliner.

The honeymoon was brief, however. Jones and West, who is the head of Stephen Jones’ men’s and designer collections, spent just one night at the Coworth Park Hotel in Berkshire before Jones had to fly to Paris on Tuesday to prepare for the Paris collections. “We expect they’ll take a longer honeymoon later in the year, when it’s more convenient,” said the spokesperson.
