Little Black Books: London fashion designers

London Fashion Week's hottest designers reveal their favourite London locations

Twice a year, London Fashion Week draws around 5,000 industry insiders to the capital for a week of style exhibitionism. We asked the leading lights of the London Fashion Week schedule what they do when they're in town, from industry heavyweights like Matthew Williamson and Richard Nicoll, to talented newbies like Tim Soar and Camilla & Marc.

Camilla Freeman-Topper (Camilla & Marc)

Australian designer Camilla Freeman Topper designs the popular Camilla and Marc label with her brother Marc Freeman.

Shop: Dover Street Market for weird and wonderful luxury pieces.

Café: The Albion on Redchurch Street. When the sun is shining it's a favourite pastime to people-watch and let the hours go by.

Bar: The Riding House Café - for the cocktails and bar snacks!

Favourite place to stay when in town: Dean Street Townhouse.

What are you looking forward to seeing in 2012? How can I not mention the Olympics?! But other than that I'm looking forward to seeing the David Hockney exhibition at the RA and La Soirée - a cabaret style circus at the Roundhouse.

Secret London spot: The Wallace Collection on Manchester Square for a trip to Versailles in London.

Hairdresser: Bleach in Dalston for magical hair!

Market: Borough and Broadway, depending where I am staying, for the most incredible food.

Treat: Fish and chips and Champagne sat at the bar at J Sheekey.
