Yes, this week sees the beginning London Fashion Week, and already the usual issues are raising their heads.

First, the amount of fur on show at the exhibition has angered many, including protest group PETA who reacted against Julien Macdonalds's collection, which included fox, chinchilla, mink and sable furs.

The other perennial LFW story is, of course, the state of the UK fashion industry and how we're standing up against New York, Milan and Pariis. This year, for the first time, LFW has moved out of its traditional Chelsea home and moved to Battersea Park. But is this London fashion's "new home" or is the festival just 'slumming it' untl it finds a flashier, more permanent home?

After all, can you see Paris Fashion Week hosting their opening show in a BMW showroom?

You can check on the upcoming schedule for the week here.

You can find Catwalk Queen's blog updates from LFW here.

And there's a rundown of what happening after-party wise here.
