"London fashion and creative industries have endured, indeed, prospered even, in difficult times," declared British Prime Minister Theresa May during the unofficial kick off to London Fashion Week at her 10 Downing Street residence. It's the first London Fashion Week since the UK's Brexit vote and Prime Minister May begun the festivity on a cheery, optimistic note. And sure enough, the streets' genuine conviviality reflected the stylish pulse of London that just won't thin out.
In highs or in lows, place your bets on fashion's enfant terrible to keep on challenging the bounds of style with Brit authenticity — because in London, the clothes make the conversations. They may be saying different things, at different volumes, but they're all outspoken. So listen up, and check in daily, because this season (more than ever) the streets speak more than style.
