LONDON — As London Fashion Week has gathered steam, the number of international buyers in town has been increasing steadily — and so have budgets.
Liberty is planning a 20 percent increase in its budgets for London, and Suzanne Timmins, senior vice president and fashion director at Hudson’s Bay Co. in Canada, called the shows here “essential to the international fashion circuit. London is a hotbed of creativity and innovation. We buy a significant number of collections here.”

"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.
