The invitations have arrived (Giles, loving your work with that mask) and the LFW schedule (aka the spreadsheet of doom) has been distributed to the team. Emergency flats have been stuffed into handbags, we've stocked up on Berocca and we're working on perfecting the art of saying 'Don't you know who I am' with a straight face. Let a week of living on Evian, champagne and canapes commence...

London Fashion Week is here!

Starting at 9am on Friday with the opening show from Paul Costelloe, we're ready for five days of fabulous UK fashion as everyone from Peter Pilotto to Vivienne Westwood show their S/S 2012 collections.

If you're not lucky enough to be joining the droves of journos, buyers, big names and bloggers hitting Somerset House in the next few days, don't worry. You can catch up with all the news, gossip and show reports right here. We'll also be running live streams of loads of amazing shows (including one of LFW's hottest tickets - Burberry) and tweeting up a storm @catwalkqueen and also for our friends over at Style369.

And don't forget to check out Kiss and Makeup for behind-the-scenes beauty gossip, and get your accessories fix at Shoewawa and The Bag Lady.
