We are in the midst of London Fashion Week and this seasons event is even more exciting than usual as it marks LFWs 25th birthday. To honour this impres- sive milestone many iconic British designers -- including Burberry Prorsum, Matthew Williamson and Pringle of Scotland -- are returning to our capital to show here, rather than new York and Milan where they have shown previously.

Choose from a stellar line-up of designers including Brits Louise Gray, Holly Fulton and Louise Markey. our fave piece is the latters block colour peplum dress (95). Topshop is offering us a slice of design edge for high street prices, too, with its hotly anticipated collaboration with Christopher Kane -- the designer everyone wants a piece of. A gorgeous collection bursting with perfectly crafted dresses, from lace panel body-con minis to girlier styles with sweetheart necklines, there is a frock for everyone here. We love the pink ballerina-look dress (125). Alongside studded denim, leather and a fab crocodile version of his famous catwalk ape tops, check out the platform shoes (150) the fashion pack will be tripping over themselves to step into.
