If there’s one London Fashion Week designer who is ready and raring for Christmas, it’s Christopher Kane. The Scotsman has transformed the façade and terrace of his Mount Street neighbour Scott’s with a graphic installation of transparent tubes coloured with chintzy Yuletide hues and his signature neons.

Beyoncé has cut her ties with Sir Philip Green, the Topshop tycoon who is battling claims of harassment and bullying.
The singer’s company Parkwood has bought out the British tycoon’s 50% share in Ivy Park, the clothing label she launched with Green’s Arcadia Group in 2016.
Ivy Park said in a statement: “After discussions of almost a year, Parkwood has acquired 100% of the Ivy Park brand. Topshop/Arcadia will fulfil the existing orders.” A spokesperson for Arcadia Group confirmed the transaction.
Beyoncé and Green first announced in 2014 that they were teaming up to design an athletic streetwear brand and the first Ivy Park range went on sale at Topshop two years later. The first range of tops, sports bras and leggings was modelled by Beyoncé herself.

Christian Siriano has won huge amounts of acclaim in the past—not just for his gorgeous designs, but for his embrace of pretty much anyone who wants to wear his creations. In an industry still dominated by sample sizes (though it's slowly getting better), Siriano puts an emphasis on being size inclusive. As Fawnia Soo Hoo wrote for Glamour in February, "He's also managed to smash the mold of what a typical 'red-carpet moment' looks like. No matter your age or body type, if Siriano likes your work, he’ll want to dress you—a strategy that's proved successful with a broad range of celebrities and their stylists."
