The capital has just enjoyed a successful 62nd edition of London Fashion Week in it's exciting new location in Soho. With so much to see, we selected our top 5 highlights from the week to share with you.
1. The Designer Showrooms
This year London Fashion Week moved from Sommerset House to the Brewer Street Carpark, where designers showcased their SS16 collections to buyers and press. We wandered the colourful myriad of accessories, bags, jewellery, millinery and ready-to-wear creations, marvelling at the experimental designs from over 120 designers.

2. Minnie Mouse; Style Icon Launch Party
We headed to the launch of an exhibition celebrating the classic style of Disney's fashionista, Minnie Mouse at Blacks' Club, London. Hosted by long time fan Georgia May Jagger, the show includes Jagger's own photography inspired by the mouse herself. Share your Minnie-inspired fashion on instagram using Georgia's hashtag; #minniestyleuk.

3. Golden Square
Sponsored by the Sunglass Hut, it would be rude not to try on the new Punk it Up collection in the photo booth! We soaked up the creative atmosphere in the gardens, complete with catwalk screen and deck chairs, trying not to get too soaked ourselves as the London weather took a turn for the worse...
4. Scoop London at the Saatchi Gallery
We jumped at the chance to experience the launch of this new show featuring fresh talent, handpicked from the finest of international collections. We loved the relaxed atmosphere created by the live band and designer stalls in the beautiful setting of the Saatchi gallery, taking in the creative collections with a Bellini in hand.

5. Aspinal of London Press Preview
A summery theme welcomed us in from the rain to a garden tea party for Aspinal of London's SS16 showcase, with stunning handbags galore and living feature wall. We swooned over the new collection whilst enjoying tea, cake and a romantic backdrop of piano music.
