The start of the AW19 Fashion Month, saw London kick things off in true British style, with Anya Hindmarch’s heart balloons transforming London’s iconic skyline, ensuring love is in the air.
With love and acceptance in the air, London became a hub for fashion’s most stylish crowd. Continuing from last season’s successful LFW press coverage, numerous influencers including stylist, models and bloggers, graced the streets of London’s dressed head to toe in Fashion Crossover designers. It was extremely rewarding to see our emerging designers being worn to various formidable fashion events, and turning the streets into a fashion frenzy.
