razia, magazine sponsors of last week's hugely successful London Fashion Week, sign off with their London Fashion Weekend, a fashion and beauty event on the lawns of the Natural History Museum. This is an exclusive shopping experience that has hitherto been something of a fashion insider's secret.
Collections from over 130 London Fashion Week designers such as Ben de Lisi, Betty Jackson, Billy Bag, Ella Moss, Gharani Strok, Jasper Conran and Paul & Joe go on sale at greatly reduced prices making this the sort of fashion event that has fashionista bargain hunters drooling in anticipation.
A selection of London's hottest boutiques including Austique, Simultane, Brittique, Paul & Joe, The Cross and Tashia Boutique will be selling their collection of designer labels from Alice McCall, Rag & Bone and Alice & Olivia, Preen, Camilla Staerk, Maria Grachvogel, (Shophound Alexia's favorite designer), and Emma Cook in 'Boutique', a new dedicated area of this event.
