Nevertheless, with time to spare I thought it was probably worth making the trip to central whilst battling through the kids on the streets during half term to make it to the biggest fashion bi-annual event.
As technology continues to develop, we are beginning to have accessibility to so many more things conveniently. That goes to watching the shows too. With London Fashion Week only open to press and buyers, this year a large screen streaming live ongoings from within the catwalk is open to everyone.
The LFW exhibition at Somerset house showcases an array of designer talents from accessories to footwear to clothing. Here are some stand out designers for me displaying their collections for A/W 2011:
Mark Fast -
Atelier Swarovski -
Collaboration with five designers
Stephen Jones Millenery -
Topsy Turvy Collection
Yang Du -
Yang's designs are currently featuring in a window at Selfridges & Co as part of its 'Bright young things'. Selfridges are also hosting a pop-up store for Yang.
Not to forget, there were some lovely innovative displays at the exhibition including Fake London, Christopher Raeburn and Dominic Jones.
