As previous winners of Fashion Fringe, Basso & Brooke could tell you how life-changing these initiatives can be for up-and-coming design talent.

Another scheme that aims to bridge the gap between education and the fashion industry is FAD, or Fashion Awareness Direct.

The company gives an insight into life in the fashion world with research and industry visits.

Twenty-three teenagers from London and Salford took part this year with an intensive five-day summer school at Central Saint Martins helping them hone their skills in areas such as pattern cutting.

Part of the course included visits to River Island design HQ, John Lewis buyers department, WGSN.com and the Vauxhall Fashion Scout where the catwalk show took place.

An amazing amount of talent was on show, with inspirations ranging from Lady Gaga to the natural world. The overall winner was Katerina Drury whose ice blue leather slice skirt with laser cut details captured fashion’s current obsession for all things 1980s.

The penultimate day of London Fashion Week also saw the return of Burberry Prorsum to the schedule, which was all anyone could talk about all day.

It was the talk of toilets, tubes, front rows, back rows and Christopher Bailey didn’t disappoint. Gorgeous draped body-conscious dresses in pistachio and old gold were cinched at the waist with industrial looking belts, whilst their classic trench coat was re-worked in petal pink and received a whole new look with ruffled, ruched shoulders.

The after-show party even had a series of Macs set up for bloggers and Burberry streamed the show live on its website.
