Step aside Oxford Street – Fonthill Road traders showcased their “unique fashion” offerings at the Holloway Road Resource Centre last Wednesday.

The Fashion Village Lookbook was launched at the event to highlights the "fantastic" array of clothing - from bridal gear to suites - that can be purchased in the Finsbury Park shopping hub, which is billed as "London's best kept fashion secret".

The lookbook was commissioned by Islington Council, and put together by graduates and models from the community.

Islington's business chief Cllr Asima Shaikh told the Gazette: "It was a brilliant celebration of our unique fashion businesses and a fantastic effort by the Fonthill Road Traders Association in partnership with Islington Council.

"We have created a lookbook to showcase some of the fashion on Fonthill Road and we're celebrating it with a marketing campaign."
