Great news for animal lovers and high fashion fans. 

This season, London has become the first main fashion week to eliminate real fur from the catwalks. 

According to a survey carried out by the British Fashion Council, none of the designers showcasing their pieces intend to use fur.

PETA urged the British Fashion Council to make the move, saying: 'Nowadays, the majority of people wouldn’t be seen dead in fur.'

'Our poll of designers with a show or presentation at the February 2018 London Fashion Week revealed that 95 per cent – including Burberry and Mulberry – didn’t use fur in their autumn/winter 2018 collections.'

'Many top international designers – including Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Armani, and others – are 100 per cent fur-free.'

Fashion Weeks the world over have always had anti-fur protesters staking out the event spaces. 

Perhaps the other major fashion weeks will now take heed? 



We all know the trials and tribulations of getting up for work on a frosty morning, when peeling yourself out of the toasty human burrito that is your blanket is the hardest thing ever. 

And some mornings, we'd like nothing more than to just wear our duvets on the bus with us to avoid the separation anxiety.

While it's all well and good to joke about wearing your blanket to work, one show at London Fashion Week just took things a little bit further.

British fashion brand Mulberry is encouraging us to make every day a duvet day with their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection.

Paying homage to people who really love their bed, the look, dubbed the "duvet poncho" resembles your granny's favourite comforter. 

Others came in a sleeping bag-style material (perfect for catching those 40 winks on the Luas) and checked prints. 

The ponchos came in long and short versions, presumably reflective of how much extra sleep you need that day. 

It's basically a slanket with a high-fashion edge. 

Our inner (and outer) lazy girl is loving this look.

Any excuse to be wrapped up in a blanket is fine with us, and if it's for the sake of high-fashion then all the better. 


Just two months ago, model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne was forced to deny rumours of relationship troubles between herself and girlfriend St Vincent.

But today the stunning couple let their actions do the talking, as they sat front row at the Burberry Prorsum SS16 show in London.

The pair, who have been together since last summer, looked completely besotted with one another throughout the fashion show, which they attended in matching black Burberry cut-out dresses.

Whispering into one another's ears, Cara and her girlfriend (real name Annie Clark) couldn't have looked any more in love.

Of course, Cara wasn't only focused on her girlfriend, taking time to chat and laugh with some pretty high profile FROW-mates, Kate Moss and Sienna Miller.

Back in June, Cara took to Instagram to tell her followers she was "very much in love" with Annie, after some cryptic messages about heartbreak on her social media feeds led people to think a break-up was imminent.

And she drove the point home in a Vogue interview published just weeks later, describing her relationship with the singer as "a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days."

Despite Cara's contentment now, she admitted it took her some time to embrace the fact that she was in love with a woman.

"It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognised that I had to accept it,” she said.

We're delighted to see the couple looking so happy together.

Fancy a Tony the Tiger handbag? Or maybe a Daz bag? A pack of digestives or rich tea dangling off your favourite satchel?

We didn’t think so. Anya Hindmarch’s AW’14 collection was presented at this season’s fashion week in London and was inspired by “finding beauty in the banal”.

While we’re all for unorthodox fashion and taking risks, we can’t help but feel we could empty out the contents of a Frosties box and just carry that around with us for a cheaper and perhaps more vintage feel.

Then again, it worked for Andy Warhol and the tin of Cambell’s soup so maybe she’s onto something.
