Welcome to London Fashion Week!

Last night I was greeted by this image whilst dining at Pont de la Tour.  Sometimes I think we all take London for granted and don't appreciate just what a striking city this is.  It seemed even more poignant when I took into consideration that this morning marks the beginning of  Fashion Week.  

Twitter is already alive with the sound of #LFW tweets and I'm braced for all the exciting things that London has to offer.  There's a misconception that we must live Fashion Week through the eyes of our favourite magazines and bloggers but the World is a-changing and even if you don't quite make it to the FROW of PPQ, you can still be very much a part of the fashion fixation that is sweeping our magical city as I type.

Watch it Live
Turn your computer volume down, build a fortress around your desktop with your ever important work files and have your Starbucks at the ready to tune in to live streaming's of the shows.  started live streaming at 9am this morning for Paul Costelloe and will continue to do so until KTZ on Wednesday.

Watch here
Go see
The Mayfair Hotel revealed their Fashion Week windows designed by Spiros Halaris and maybe you could pop in for a Catwalk body wrap too!

Selfridges is the home to the latest pop up, The Sweat Shop.  Originating from Paris this sewing cafe will teach you how to create a show stopping piece without the hefty price tag.  Simply rent yourself a sewing machine and you can be designing like the greats alongside some well deserved tea and cake.  My workshop picks are...

Pinkberry at Selfridges Designer Collection.  Will you be picking The Anna, The Henry or The Karl?!

At Topshop, Oxford Circus and wade in on all their Fashion Week action including Fashion Insider Talks, share your fashion week takes at their media space and spend over £50 to receive your very own Fashion Doll and dress her in exclusive designer items.
