London Times fashion coverage

Of all the *formal* sources of style and fashion news, I find myself reading the UK Times' fashion coverage on a regular basis.  The writing is thoughtful, European in style, and eye-opening. I also have a RSS feed into the Times' fashion tweets which I peruse at least once a day.  Right now, some insight into the hype around being a professional stylist, the rise of ethical fashion (we shouldn't forget about ethical attitudes - not just related to material sourcing but how we carry ourselves as human beings; read: never underestimate the importance of humility and treating everyone equally), and a profile on Australian designer Yeojin Bae.

Photo galleries are nicely done too!

I don't consider myself an expert re: British fashion at all so I'm not sure I am correct in weighing the scene now vs the past, but it seems to me the content is getting more exciting as well, many of the more creative young designers are coming out of Britain right now. What do you think?

Thx Kellina. I think there's a lot of truth to that. From classic fashion houses like Burberry under the creative direction of Christopher Bailey, an upstart like Preen, Saloni Lodha, to fashion mainstream like Topshop, there's a lot going on in the UK. I feel like British style, while founded in traditional looks, is a lot riskier and bolder than other countries' designers (Rodarte excluded!)
