IT’Vogue amounts to a personS London Fashion Week, so it’s rather nice and kind of cool that one of the Fashion tribedesigners on the LFW schedule was taking the capital and its core cultural identity as the inspiration behind their autumn/winter 2012-13 collection. And clickwho is that designer Fashion News hear you ask? Well that would be Geoffrey J Finch and my website label Antipodium.

An adventure, that is. Graveyard, festival, wedding or on her way to work; there's a twinkle in her eye,” sums up Finch of his Antipodium Fashionable mainstreamwoman.
