London Fashion Week is firmly pencilled in our diaries – a fabulous adventure to discover new ethical designers who have the talent to break in to the mainstream.

Let’s take a look at what Sommerset House had to offer…

Nicola from Beautiful Soul brings vintage kimonos into the limelight for A/W 2010 – luxury fabrics the are durable teamed with a design that can be worn in a multitude of ways. Recycled jeans turned our heads – who would’ve guessed that a beautiful and elegant top could be produced from your old pair of jeans? If LFW is all about innovation, Nicola has it in abundance.

Lu Flux took us by surprise. Upbeat, full of energy and raring to go with their eco credentials, there’s something in this range for everyone who wants to unleash their inner child. From hand knit mittens to eccentric dresses you’ll want to touch and play with something in the range this year.

Possibly our pick of the show, Kayu Design showcased a range of bamboo sunglasses – handcrafted. As a resource that grows twice as fast as a tree and restores itself in just 5 years, we’re loving bamboo. They look hot and by buying a pair, Kayu funds one sight restoring surgery in the developing world (best not ask for a complimentary press sample then!)
