Fashion week coverage captures eccentric mood

Sir, The FT’s coverage of London Fashion Week (“Designers strike optimistic note at London Fashion Week”, September 21) has been marvellous. I think the collections have done a wonderful job of reflecting the mood of the UK after the EU referendum. Bright and optimistic and after, in my opinion, a few years of blandness some touches of good old British eccentricity.

We should be rightly proud of the talent of our designers and the our fashion industry as a whole. Right, I’m off to throw on a Shakespearean-inspired outfit with an Elizabethan ruff with a tweed twist.
