The event showcases the latest trends as well as some hotly-tipped new designers like Osman, Mother of Pearl, Teatum Jones and Huishan Zhang (Digital Journal has profiled Zhnag's impressive new collection on the catwalk in the first of our exclusive two-part review).

London Fashion Weekend Festival aims to provide "an insider's view of the latest fashion trends." The event is held twice per year at different venues, in London. This year it moved from Chelsea to central London, providing a bigger opportunity for pop-up stores to display their latest merchandise. The tools for a fashion show? Water and champagne.

While the opportunity to shop, gossip or quaff champagne are plentiful most people attend London Fashion Weekend Festival to take in the cat walks, where very thin models (at times, too thin) glide past wearing this coming season's latest creations.

Ruffles were also noticeable, adding a vintage touch to some of the dresses. Ruffles seem popular with many of the dresses on show this season.

One plus point with the trends on show is that, for the most part, they appear wearable (at least to this non-fashion orientated journalist's eyes), with nothing too outlandish in sight. From the more simple: A more practical looking dress for the summer with a Scottish tartan theme.

Disappointingly, given the coverage that Digital Journal has afforded to the subject this year, there was no sign or mention of wearable technology and how electronics and clothes can fuse together. The connected wearable garment made from graphene, which debuted at a Manchester fashion event, was sadly no where in sight. The London Fashion Weekend Festival provides a range of different styles and trends for the largely female audience. It presents a good opportunity for those with an interest in fashion to see what's likely to be "in" this coming season. London Fashion Weekend Festival has many stalls selling a variety of clothes and related items.
