Between Friday 13th September and Tuesday 17th September, London becomes the centre of the fashion universe – and Natalie Massenet (chairman of the British Fashion Council and founder of Net-A-Porter) has called on we fashionable Brits to make it a big one. In a letter to the Evening Standard, Massenet said:
“You are the most fashionable inhabitants in the most fashionable city in the world… Our style inspires and starts global fashion trends… And while the shows are a trade event, fashion is for the consumer so dress up, London!”
With the British the fashion industry worth £21 billion to the economy and responsible for 819,000 jobs, it’s a powerful part of the UK. And there’s certainly plenty of us to dress up and shout about LFW!
Vogue has an exclusive interview with Natalie Massenet next week, so tune in to Vogue.co.uk for more.
I’m so excited for LFW! I’m planning the wardrobe, and for the first time I’ve been invited to two events, which I’m doing backflips over! Remember to keep dropping by the blog for updates, and follow me on Twitter.
