LONDON — Buyers lauded the strong colors, the wealth of fabrications and the plethora of creative, young designers to emerge from London Fashion Week, which ended Tuesday.
“As a hotbed for creativity and out-of-the-box innovative design, London is our top stop on the four-city fashion circuit for finding emerging designer talent,” said Colleen Sherin, senior fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue. Stephen Ayres, head of fashion at Liberty in London, agreed: “I really believe London delivers the most diverse and interesting mix of brands as part of [its] fashion week. No other fashion capital incubates and shows emerging designers alongside [larger brands] such as Burberry the way London does.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
