For the last five years, the stately and elegant Somerset House was home to London Fashion week. This year, organisers shook things up by moving the event to a hip & trendy new venue. A parking lot in Soho’s Brewer Street is one of five venues housing the best that British Fashion has to offer.
The new venue (or should I say venues) choice is a smart one: oozing with that independant, slightly alternative London flair. The shows are centred around the densely inhabited Soho district, home to many pubs, gay clubs, sex shops & even mountains of rubbish bags (which served as sofas for some visitors).
It was great fun to immerse ourselves in that flair. As always at LFW , there were a lot of attention seeking, crazy outfits that in my opinion, didn’t have too much to do with fashion. This year, the gentleman were the true winners of London’s street style prizes. Dapper in sharply tailored suits and British evergreen patterns such as glencheck, tartan & herringbone.
