Londoners are marching into spring with all the bravery and derring-do they can muster in these uncertain times.
Even before Alexander McQueen, one of this city’s brightest fashion stars, took his life on Feb. 11, the mood was muted and low-key, and his death will only enhance that feeling during London Fashion Week, which kicked off Friday and runs through Tuesday. With unemployment at about 8 percent — 2 percent higher than last year — people are toiling harder than ever and are only just beginning to look forward to better times.
