The London Fashion Week ABC’s

A: Aquascutum Since 1851, Aquascutum has been a part of British tailoring and now, in their 165th year, they celebrate with a presentation at London Fashion Week. There was no place more fitting than at Grosvenor Place for the celebrations to take place. Models lounged as styled by Lorenzo Posocco, champagne was scattered and the decor was sublime. The…
