ROUGH CUT / NO REPIORTER MARRA From the luxurious to the high street and the vintage to the recycled, the mix of looks is what makes London stand apart from other fashion capitals Milan, Paris and New York, fashionistas say. The London catwalks may be showcasing designers' latest trends at Fashion Week but outside the runway venues, an array of eclectic outfits are also grabbing photographers' attention. Posing, pouting and describing their looks, the fashion fans proudly display their wardrobe choices for bloggers and photographers snapping pictures of the Londoners' street style. From the luxurious to the high street and the vintage to the recycled, the mix of looks is what makes the British city stand apart from fellow fashion capitals Milan, Paris and New York, fashionistas say. Each season editors, bloggers and buyers descend on the four fashion capitals for the catwalk shows, but online pictures of outfits on the pavements outside have become as key to style followers as what is seen on the runways. In London, which does not showcase as many major luxury brands as the other cities but is home to famed fashion schools, residents' edgy sartorial looks are particularly lauded. Bloggers, students and fashion fans mill around show venues and pose for pictures like models. On display are torn shirts worn under belted jackets, PVC coats, floral trouser suits, vintage dresses as well as plenty of quirky sunglasses. From colourful 1960s mini-skirts to punk, London has championed ground-breaking styles, and is particularly known for its creative talent.
