London Fashion Week Portal SS12 – All Our LFW Coverage in One Place

If there were a week that could be highly anticipated, stressful, exciting and yet exhausting, it would be fashion week. And, once again, it’s here – the week where people get to see what they’ll be wearing next summer before this summer’s even out; the week where we will all live off Vitamin Water for ten or more hours; the week where we will wear clothes that we would otherwise never dream of, all in the name of fashion. That is assuming, of course, we get the tickets on time…

Thankfully, we’re sparing you all that stress, and instead will be posting up pictures, exclusive interviews, designer profiles and heaps more for your leisurely perusal. We’ll also be Tweeting from @NotionMagazine, with the #pnlfw hashtag so keep up to the minute there!
