NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A rainy London kicked off five days of catwalk shows on Friday (September 17), with questions over what consequences Brexit may have on the Britain's fashionistas. Picking up the runway calendar baton from New York, London hosts its first fashion week since Britain's vote to leave the European Union, with a mix of luxury and high street labels unveiling their spring/summer 2017 offerings to buyers and magazine editors from around the world. While the September shows have usually been associated with predominantly womenswear, labels like Burberry will present collections both for women and men this week for the first time. Some 83 designers are set to showcase their lines in London this week.
