Fashion month has started, New York Fashion Week is in full swing and London Fashion Week is less than a week away, and I am getting pretty excited to see what the London-based designers have in store for us for spring/summer 2014.

Day 4 of London Fashion Week is generally about the big hitters Burberry and Erdem, unless like me you sadly don’t have tickets, one day here’s hoping.
