Scenes From London Fashion Week



Britain's economy may be stagnant, but this month's London Fashion Week showed its fashion industry at least is thriving.



Coming shortly after retail figures showed a 0.9 percent sales rise in January, the event showcased a host of British talent, from stalwarts like Alexander McQueen (the late designer's label), Burberry and Vivienne Westwood, to relative newcomers like Louise Gray. Other established names gave debut London performances, with Italian label Moschino making its first foray across the Channel.



Quintessentially British styles were out in force, with a Carnaby Street-inspired show by Moschino, and frequent dashes of tweed, wool and felt fabrics across the catwalk. But designers also looked east, spawning many a Russian-style fur hat, headscarf and peasant skirt.
