London Is The Global Fashion Capital

The morning after Fashion's Night Out, Reuters report that London has trumped New York for a second year running as the global fashion capital.

The list of most influential cities when it comes to what's hot and what's not is compiled from data tacking interest on the internet and in the media. Kate Middleton is cited as the number one reason London's top of the (shoe) tree, with the Olympics running a close second, thanks to that supermodel section in the Closing Ceremony and Stella McCartney's efforts with Team GB's gear.

But we know it's the style and attitude of Londoners on the streets that makes our capital the coolest for clobber. Just check out the photos submitted for the London Look photo challenge and these snaps from Fashion's Night Out.
