This February saw 120 designers showcase their autumn/winter 2012 collection, whilst the September event will be showcasing the hottest trends for spring/summer 2013.
There is no question that the world looks to London for its style, sense of fashion and radical design. With the whole world’s attention on London this year thanks to the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 London Games, our fashion is also set to grab headlines, giving us the unbeatable glow of regal glamour.
