LONDON — Buyers from both sides of the Atlantic gave London a big thumbs-up this season for what they saw on the runway and for the organization of the three-day showcase that ended Tuesday. Streetwear, tailoring, accessories and a load of patterns and colors were the big trends, and buyers said they are ready to increase their London budgets in response.
“The main thing is that London is really maturing and it’s getting very strong and we are taking it as seriously as we take the women’s shows,” said Sebastian Manes, buying and merchandising director at Selfridges in London. “We plan to at least double our budgets this season for London,” he said, adding that the company planned to add to its roster of London designers.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
