today i love... london fashion week

It's LFW eve everyone! I'm super duper excited. That's right, today the last shows take place in New York and then it's off to JFK for a lovely long-haul flight back to good old Blighty, where from 18th-23rd it's London fashion a-go-go. After a mixed bag of shows stateside (my show reports on the best of NYFW coming tomorrow), I can't wait to see what London has to offer. It's always my favourite of the four fashion weeks, and not just because I'm rather patriotic at times. No, it's because if there's one thing you can say for British designers, it's that they aren't afraid to experiment. Yes, sometimes they can go a little too far (read: bonkers), but mostly it's a breath of fashionable fresh air. And the fact that some of the New York designers seemed to be stuck in something of a safe rut this season makes me even more excited to see the brilliantly inventive designs of some of London's freshest talent. So here's everything you need to know...

1. Once again, thanks to the internet, you can see pretty much every show you could ever want to without having to leave the comfort of your home. Just as they did last season, Topshop will be live streaming all the shows they sponsor; click
here to go to their live streaming site. To watch many of the other shows, simply visit And of course, the grand dame of LFW, Burberry Prorsum, will be streaming their show, including backstage snippets and front row interviews, from their website.

2. Again I'd recommend and for all the best pictures and show reports. Topshop's blog Inside-Out will also be particularly worth a visit during LFW, with regular show reports, insider info and street style snaps aplenty.

3. As with NYFW, I'll be posting my thoughts on all the best shows once LFW's over. In the meantime, I'll be searching out the best front row looks for your perusal pleasure. And if you need a handy catch-up of all the London fashion action from last season, click
here for my show reports for LFW S/S'11.

4. And finally, here are the shows I'm especially excited to see over the next few days, along with when and where you can watch them. (Click
