MEDIA: WHAT THE PAPERS SAY; London shows its style is a cut above

London’s renaissance as a centre of fashion was highlighted when the top designers returned to show their collections. The media reported that big names such as Rocha and Hamnett who had previously defected to Paris and Milan descended on what the Guardian described as the ‘Hottest venue for the Autumn catwalk season’. This international showcase reflected the heart of the city with labels such as Red or Dead paying homage to the cultural and racial mixes that exist.

the cultural and racial mixes that exist.



The icing on the cake was the debut of the big American designers

Hilfiger and Karan. The welcoming press reception was slightly marred by

controversy over US designer ‘pinching’ the best models, ‘British

designers accuse US rivals of stealing their show’ (Evening Standard).



The success of the show was shown by media reports of high attendances

and record sales proving that London was once again on a par with New

York, Milan and Paris.
