Cheerio, London Fashion Week!

The arrival of leggy models and fashion personalities into my current city of Milan can only mean one thing – London Fashion Week is over! And what a week it was. After a tad lackluster showings last season for spring and summer, it looks as though the Brits are ready to do fall and winter as only they can they’ve certainly got the weather for it.

Styles look polished, but maintain the British edginess that designers like Westwood pioneered. At Jonathan Saunders, prim styles were reimagined in leather -an interesting juxtaposition.
