Expect fashionistas to be even more focused on their phone screens this time around — the official London Fashion Week Instagram account has since seen its number of followers jump to 150,000.
10,000: The number of bottles of Sassy cider that werebe distributed on site for those looking for something a little stronger than coffee. Some 5,000 portions of Scavi & Ray Prosecco will also be served up to guests.

3.5: The percentage at which the menswear clothing market is growing, according to Mintel 2017 statistics.

Anderson the latest big name designer to adopt the model in the UK capital this season.
