To celebrate London Fashion Week we asked a selection of top designers to tell us their favourite spots for shopping, relaxing and getting inspired.
Henry Holland started out working on pre-teen magazine Sneak before surprising even himself with a slogan t-shirt collection making hobby that won him funding for a full collection at Fashion East. A master of promotion and an eye for the zeitgeist, Holland’s line has matured to the point where his collection has earned its rightful place as a London Fashion Week mainstay. Always careful to ensure his brand has a broad appeal, Holland has also collaborated frequently- there is a flourishing Debenhams collection in store now, as well as an affordable range of tights for Pretty Polly.
