Two of the season's big tickets will be Christopher Kane and JW Anderson, both of which have received investment from luxury conglomerates LVMH and Kering respectively. Burberry and Tom Ford will once again draw big crowds, as two of London's best-known names. Mulberry has already got the fashion press talking with its Sunday photo call, at which campaign star Cara Delevingne will unveil a "creative project", with whispers she could be the latest star to have a bag named after her. With no creative director yet appointed at the helm, the label will not hold a catwalk show this season - instead hosting an intimate dinner for friends of the brand.
We look forward to seeing what the city's creative mainstays - Erdem, Mary Katrantzou, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Ilincic and Henry Holland - have in store, a group who have progressed from being the new generation to lucrative businesses, embracing new chapters in their careers - with many opening standalone shops in the coming months. We'll also be keeping a firm eye on the Peter Pilotto catwalk, this year's BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund winner.
New to the schedule this season are Mother of Pearl, Whistles, Joseph and Marks & Spencer - the latter of which will unveil its autumn/winter 2014 Best of British collection with a series of presentations at Somerset House on Monday. Joseph celebrates the 25th anniversary of its famed Fulham Road store this season, launching a capsule collection created by labels including Giles, Balmain and Jonathan Saunders.
