London Fashion Week: Your Introduction to This Week’s Most Prestigious Event

You can feel it in the air; London is on tenterhooks (or should we say stiletto points) as the dawn of London Fashion Week SS13 is set to ignite. New York Fashion Week draws to a close after the premier of stunning collections from designers such as Marchesa, (Blake Lively’s wedding dress designer) who showcased a collection of unique gowns this week. Our blood is bubbling like champagne!

Since 1984, London Fashion Week has been hosted by Somerset House. A nucleus of British heritage and culture in itself has grown to become an eccentric and eclectic ceremony of the Arts. Inspired by the masters of fashion, London becomes a tapestry of cultural experiences as an innumerable amount of ‘off-schedule’ events and exhibitions reverberate through the streets just waiting to be explored.

Somerset House looks out onto the river, where the heart of London’s South Bank boasts a plethora of our most famous cultural spaces such as The Tate Modern, The Globe Theatre, Borough Market and the British Film Institute to name a few. To the North lies The Strand, a gate way to the ever fashionable Covent Garden, the glitzy lights of Leicester Square and a labyrinth of style to absorb.

This seasons catwalk shows are set to be bigger than ever, after the Olympic Closing Ceremony showcased a glimpse of British fashion with models such as the iconic Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lily Donaldson walking in sumptuous creations from the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Burberry and Christopher Kane. As a result, these examples of quintessentially British fashion have captured British designer’s imagination, and are set to come to a glittering apex.
