You see, this is exactly why I love London. Whether you are the son of a preacher's man or not, no one cares, you still get invited to the party!

From tomorrow most of the blogs on my reading list will start the restless blogging-marathon about FashionWeek in the 4 main capitals of the industry: New York -  London - Milan - Paris. Always been quite curious about it but since not directly involved with the world I haven't really felt the urge of finding a way to participate in it in any way. Until now that London, the mecca of aspiring newbies, designers who's names are yet about to be blown up by the critics, has found another way for reinventing itself in the field. The British Fashion Council has teamed up with British Council to launch for the 2nd time the International Fashion Showcase, a platform for international emerging designers, aiming to "develop a new audience and market, focusing on fashion beyond the traditional hotspots, highlighting equally fertile new grounds."

Starting from now until next week 27 embassies will display the work of the talented local designers and on the 17th of February the best exhibition will be given the Emerging Talent Award 2013. Amongst them, also Estonia will be participating! RSVP is required to participate in most of the exhibitions. To find out more you need to download the booklet guide.

What lovely pictures you have taken! I love seeing people expressing their fashion in their own ways. Not really into fashion but seeing people be passionate to what they love during LFW is great. I passed Somerset House the other day and there were some very interesting colours and clothes that people put together.

I hope you will check out this post and comment on my friend’s post about the KTZ show during LFW while meeting Carri of Cassette Playa and ex-Danity Kane member, Dawn Richards: http://denzelwynter.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/london-fashion-week-aw-13-lfw-day-1.html
