London takes over fashion spotlight from New York
LONDON (AP) -- Fashion week kicks off in London with a splash of color shown
by the British designers Antoni & Alison, the first of dozens of catwalk shows
jammed into the next six days.
Designers, models, buyers and journalists filled Somerset House for the
festivities on Friday, which will include some of the fashion world's biggest stars.
Stella McCartney will hold her first stand-alone show in London since she
graduated. McQ, the second line from the Alexander McQueen fashion house led by
Sarah Burton, will join London Fashion Week regulars like Burberry, Christopher Kan
Kane, Erdem and Paul Smith.
