Highlights from London Fashion Week

The emerging market slowdown has hit luxury fashion, with U.K. brands like Burberry and Mulberry rattling investors with warnings of slowing growth in Asia.

However, all was not doom and gloom at London Fashion Week, particularly after the British Fashion Council opened the event on Friday by highlighting the industry's substantial growth over the last five years. The Council noted the U.K. fashion industry was now worth £26 billion ($43 billion), up from £21 billion 2009. In addition, the sector supports 797,000 jobs.

Designers at fashion week even appeared unfazed by the prospect of falling sales in China. Pringle of Scotland's design chief Massimo Nicosia told CNBC the brand was opening more Chinese branches.

"Emerging markets, or what once were considered emerging markets, are very knowledgeable," he said. "Chinese customers are learning very quickly."
