British Invasion: London's Hottest Designers Hit L.A.

The British Fashion Council's international showcase, LONDON show ROOMS, made its Los Angeles debut yesterday at Ace Gallery—and it was, in a word, amazing. Hot off the heels of successful stints in Paris and New York, the showroom presented London's brightest stars of British fashion to a slew of West Coast buyers, stylists, and press. While fondling fresh-off-the-runway looks was exciting enough, the landmark event also gave us the opportunity to chat one-on-one with some of our favorite designers across the pond, including Erdem, Jonathan Saunders, Nicholas Kirkwood, Mary Katrantzou, Todd Lynn, Marios Schwab, and Peter Pilotto. Take a peek at our slideshow from the festivities. Anglomania!
