Following the explosions of ingenuity and evolution of London style, this illustrated reference is the perfect guide to embrace the enthralling mix of chic, edgy and novel that is London fashion.

From street style to high fashion, London has been a hub of fashion creativity and innovation for centuries.

Mary Quant. Vivienne Westwood. Alexander McQueen. Martine Rose. The list of designers inspired by the chaos and expanse of London is almost endless, as are the styles and subcultures born there. From the punks of King's Road to the New Romantics of the Soho clubbing scene, London is entirely unique in its sprawling and often unorthodox range of fashions. So many of the world's most beloved fashion icons are also Londoners, with figures like Twiggy, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Siouxsie Sioux and Adwoa Aboah inspiring trends across the globe.

Following the explosions of ingenuity and evolution of London style, this beautifully illustrated reference is the perfect guide to embrace the enthralling mix of chic, edgy and novel that is London fashion.
