Not sure if the buzz has hit over on this side of the Atlantic, but over in London, almost every glossy and fashion magazine are raving about Scottish designer, Christopher Kane. Just graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2006, Kane has already launched his own Women's Ready-to-Wear line, as well as guest designing for Top Shop this spring. Known for his unique approach to body conscious mini dresses and odd materials, Kane is proving himself to play with the rest of the World's greatest designers, boosting the industry in London.

He is someone breaking the rules, pushing fashion forward and helping London join the Fashion leaders in the World.
