As London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2008 drew to a close after six days comprising 57 catwalk shows, 200 exhibitor displays, captured by over 350 photographers and broadcasters, the city wrapped up another display of critically acclaimed collections, re-affirming London as the most innovative of the fashion capitals.

London Fashion Week sparked interest from an extensive range of visitors including press, buyers and PRs. UK and international press interest and attendance at London Fashion continues to grow.

Buyers were more affected by economic climates, meaning that some American stores struggled to send full teams while emerging markets are becoming a strength for London as China, Korea and Russia demonstrate an interest in developing close links with the British fashion industry.

Photographers and broadcast crews also encompassed countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Ukraine demonstrating the wide appeal of the collections.

London's catwalk schedule had the strength to attract a diverse range of designers from Vivienne Westwood's Red Label London debut through to Graeme Black's first on schedule collection.

Jaeger London joined British brands Aquascutum and Asprey on the schedule while Jenny Packham and Emma Cook joined the list of designers returning to London, including Luella for the second consecutive season.

The core of the British Fashion Council's schedule continues to be iconic designers Paul Smith and Betty Jackson, established labels such as Jasper Conran, John Rocha and Nicole Farhi, rising stars such as Giles through to Fashion Forward designers Richard Nicoll, Jens Laugesen and Roksanda Illincic and New Generation designers such as Meadham Kirchoff, Christopher Kane and Marios Schwab.
