The Top Trends from the Fall 2013 Runways
Four cities, one season: Fall 2013. Nemo kicked the collections off and every city to follow added its own dose of wintry chill. Somehow all that cold weather caused a discernible note of restraint to float through the collections. Don’t worry--the passion and excitement were still there, but designers actively pursued defining new ways we can really dress next fall. These looks felt grounded in the return of the “Lady," as fashion’s pendulum swung away from the risqué, toward the refreshingly refined (spike-studded shoulders be damned). Check out our top trends for fall in the slide show.
The Top 10 Fall Trends from London Fashion Week
Playing the name game in London is far from easy: So many cool young designers, so many unusual names, and only a week to make sense of them all. It’s largely due to the aversion many Brit design talents have to being crafted into the sort of the fashion celebs we adore stateside. No worries; the clothes spoke volumes for themselves, as London dialed down the quirked, and turned out one of the most sophisticated seasons in recent years. See for yourself!

Katie Grand, Sarah Burton, Tom Ford Among British Fashion Award Nominees
The British Fashion Council has just announced the nominees for the 2011 British Fashion Awards, which are essentially the U.K.'s answer to our prestigious CFDA's. The ceremony, which is scheduled for November 28, is meant to recognize the most influential people in fashion today and also promote the growth of British fashion. With all the attention the U.K. has been getting lately for that stylish princess of theirs and being dubbed the "new fashion capital," British fashion is definitely more relevant than ever this year. That may be why the BFC has decided to re-introduce the Red Carpet award, which "gives recognition to a British designer who is creating global awareness of their designs in the media." From Kim Jones to Stella McCartney to Erdem, here are all the nominees:
Newsflash: The Fashion Industry Contributes £37 Billion to the UK Economy Each Year
LONDON--Remember that teaser for The September Issue where the voice-over would say, "Fashion is $500 billion global industry..." or something like that? Well, it looks like the UK makes up about a tenth of that $500 billion. At least according to a new study commissioned by the British Fashion Council. Fancy-sounding consultants Oxford Economics researched and wrote the report, which states that £37 billion is made--directly or indirectly--from fashion each year in Great Britain. That's not too shabby, given the size of the country. In fact, fashion is the 15th largest industry (out of approximately 81) in the UK. The results are a boon to those like designer Christopher Raeburn, who produces much, if not all, of his product here in the UK. Fashion's importance to the economy reinforces his mission.
London Fashion Week's NEWGEN Men Winners Include Christopher Raeburn, Christopher Shannon, JW Anderson

And along with £5,000 – £10,000 towards their show costs, they'll receive free exhibition space, usage of the BFC catwalk and mentoring. Christopher Shannon, James Long, and JW Anderson will use stage runway shows; Carolyn Massey, Lou Dalton, and Sibling will do presentations; and Christopher Raeburn, James Small, Katie Eary, and Omar Kashoura will create installations.
