Loving fashion is a¬†given for any budding designer but love is not enough to make in the top world of couture – you need some serious drawing talent to transform your inspirations into reality. Just in time for London Fashion Week, the ‘Drawing Fashion’ exhibition at the Design Museum is a great starting point for aspiring designers and a must see for the rest of us.

London Fashion Week 2011Starting tomorrow, you can browse through the sketches of the world’s greatest names in the fashion from Chanel to Dior and the late Alexander McQueen. There’s also some fantastic events going on around London where you can try your hand at this refined art. Here’s our list of happenings to get into your diary:
