Countdown to Fashion Week

Well London Fashion Week kicked off today at 9.30am. The event is celebrating it's 25th year and with a brand new spanking premises of Somerset House they have a lot to shout about. LFW may only run for six days but an awful lot is crammed in with shows, presentations, launches, installations and after parties. But who are the people who run Fashion Week and what exactly are their duties? In conjunction with New York Fashion Week, US Elle created a docu-video series which features five major players behind New York Fashion Week. There is the editor, the 
publicist, the designer, and the director of programs from the CFDA. You get to see them preparing for Fashion Week, what shows to see, what to wear and which parties to attend. They also share their hopes and expectations from the shows and what impact it will have on the industry.

I'm more interested in the fashion in London to be honest, so I'm really looking forward to this.

NY Fashion for the guys was a huge disappointment. I haven't checked out the ladies side of things yet. I might catch up this weekend.
