StyleOnTheCouch Loves: London Fashion Weekend

Neatly positioned at the rear of London Fashion Week is London Fashion Weekend.  With just a little time to recover from the new and forthcoming collections, London Fashion Weekend is an opportunity to get your fix of well established and emerging British designers by shopping the labels under one roof.  Throw in a little catwalk show of the major trends for spring and it’s the perfect fashion fix!

During my trip home to the UK I met the lovely Anna (pic below) from South Molton Street Style at the event.  Anna’s blog is a great round up of British designers both high street and other and it’s often the place I visit when I’m feeling a bit out of the loop with British fashion.  Anna and I talked about it being a great time to “be British” and I’ve been pondering this ever since.  What do you think? We felt that somewhere in between the Royal wedding and Stella McCartney‘s special London Fashion Week presentation things got kinda cool again for us Brits.

I love the emerging talent that abounds in London fashion design – London Fashion Weekend showcases some of my favourite innovators: Liz Black, Jaegar and By Malene Birger really stand out for me.

I’d recommend heading to London Fashion Weekend if you should find yourself in London for fashion week.

And what is a fashion blogger to do after a spot of shopping? Head to The Savoy down the road from Somerset House (the home of London Fashion Week and Weekend) for tea and biscuits.  Which, Blog Reader, is exactly what we did.
