And for the new season, it's not only their catwalk collections that British designers have been fine tuning.
For ELLE's October issue, The London Issue, four British designers have created their ultimate ELLE covers. And while they may not all be showing in the capital, these designers have London spirit through and through.
Luella Bartley, now back showing at London Fashion Week, Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh, who will be showing in New York this season for the first time, and Matthew Williamson, who has put his label firmly on the fashion map with a move to the tents at Bryant Park in New York, have each created a special limited edition ELLE cover that money can't even buy. Only a few hundred of each will ever be printed, and promise to be future collectors items.
Pictured here are Luella and Matthew Williamson's covers. Click now to see all four.
