While everyone else is still panicking over present-buying, Christmas food and getting a tree cast your thoughts to as the BFC have released the catwalk schedule for London Fashion Week.

The days and dates have changed so Paul Costelloe who usually opens proceedings on a Sunday is now showing on a Friday with shows finishing on a Wednesday. All the usual names are on the sheet, from old favourites like Paul Smith and Julien Macdonald to established newcomers like Christopher Kane and Roksanda Illincic.

Newer names on the roster include Mark Fast (pictured right) whose knitwear designs propelled him into the limelight and with a debut collection available at Browns in the spring he is sure to be a hot ticket come February. Other designers to look out for include Peter Pillotto who is maturing nicely, fairly recent graduate Mary Katrantzou (pictured left) and this year will see the first catwalk show for Twenty8Twelve, the label run by Sienna Miller and her sister Savannah.
