As the great, much-missed electronic duo that were Sash! once sang: “ENCORE UNE FOIS!” Yes, it’s that time of the year again: London Fashion Week. Once again we’ll be pounding the streets in and around Somerset House in search of the most exciting, creative and bloody brilliant designers and collections that’ll be coming up for Spring/Summer 2013. And yes, I KNOW we’ve only just come into Autumn/Winter 2012, but you always have to be one step ahead, right? We’ll be interviewing as many people as we can possibly put a Dictaphone in front of, and there’ll be all manner of SS13 fashion goodness coming up right here. So get this page bookmarked and keep checking back – it’s the only place you need to come for the best of #LFW!
