Step away from the mainstream and discover the hidden gems that make London one of the most fashionable cities in the world! When shopping in London we usually head straight to the same old tourist-dodging streets and we end up buying the same clothes that everyone else wears. But the city has endless possibilities when it comes to organising the shopping trip of your dreams. The only thing you need to know is where to point your feet.
