The fashion week train has moved to London and while us Americans got a taste of the upcoming spring trends, the British are making the most of their fashion week.

To kick off their ode to fashion, Anna Wintor, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss and many other fashionable celebs payed tribute to the late-great Alexander McQueen by attending a private memorial service for him. Miss Wintor led the service and offered a compelling speech about McQueen’s work but this sentenced captured my attention about him when she described McQueen as:

“a complex and gifted young man.”

I couldn’t agree with her more. Anna Wintor knows fashion and talent; and talent is exactly what McQueen had. There’s absoutely no better way to mark the beginning of fashion week in London by celebriting the life of one of the best British designers. Well done, London.

When Kate Moss releases her newest collection for Top Shop this October, it will be her last. According to NY mag, Kate’s line hasn’t been doing to well in the numbers department and it’s losing it momentum with consumers. The line only launched three years ago and its success has been inevitable with tons of fans and fashionistas lining up early and skipping work to purchase a piece of the collection. I’m said to see Kate’s collection go, but all things do come to an end eventually and maybe the lines high prices aren’t matching with Top Shop frugal-sprending customers. Or maybe, just maybe like NY mag mentioned the line is just simply not that good anymore.
