Schedule published for London Fashion Week SS08

Blimey. The BFC (British Fashion Council)has really pulled its finger out for once. A schedule in July? Bimey wonders will never cease. Notables include a tribute to Isabella Blow on Tueasday 18th, and the BFC actually looking at the venues and arranging them (almost) in a geographically sensible order for the first time in the 20 seasons or so that I have been covering the shows.
