The latest fashion news is that The London Fashion Week is upon us once again but still behind the Paris, New York and Milan fashion shows.
Memories of exhibiting there flooded back, not only because I was in London for the fashion textile show in the London Design Centre just a few short weeks ago but also because, having been a fashion designer specializing in luxury yarns, I was entriuged to see that the Dutch grannies has been encouraged to help bring back hand knitting into the forefront of Dutch designers.
Fashion textile as a whole has moved on in amazing directions. More about that soon. 🙂

When your are starting out on your path of designer clothing, it is important to find your uniqueness and watching some of the London Fashion videos will help you to visualize what area within the fashion arena you could specialize in when preparing for your own fashion exhibition.
You may feel that all the uniqueness has been covered but you just have to look at some of your favourite designers to note that they each have a twist to their creativity.
One thing I learned when I exhibited at the London Fashion Week, you have to do it at least two years in a row so that buyers have confidence that you will be around for year two.
