11 Unmissable Moments At London Fashion Week

As fashion week kicks off in Milan, we look back at the stand-out moments from the London shows. Versace's little sister label Versus held their catwalk show in the British capital on Saturday night, bringing Italian glamour to the week. British headliners Burberry are shaking up the tradition of showing the collection six months in advance by making everything they sent down the runway on Monday night available to buy straightaway. Here's how it went down for the boys and girls of Elite Model Look.

Marketa Salounova walks at London Fashion Week for the first time

Marketa said: "I am so happy to be walking in the Burberry show, it feels amazing. When I did the casting, I was wondering every day if they wanted me, but I was happy just to have met them. But when my agent told me, I was so surprised but very happy." Marketa participated in Elite Model Look in the Czech Republic in 2014. "The Elite Model Look changed my life - I met so many nice people. Bara [Podzimkova, winner of Elite Model Look World Final 2014] is still a very good friend of mine."
