Attention all shoe fanatics. Selfridges & Co., the UK’s answer to Barney’s and Holt Renfrew, have now earned themselves an international claim to fame: the world’s largest shoe department. Featuring everything from Topshop to Lanvin, the London flagship location promises thousands of shoes, 6 major galleries and 11 exclusive brand boutiques. With emerging UK-based labels like Christopher Kane, Erdem and Mark Fast shining a light on the ever-strengthening scene, Selfridge’s announcement solidifies London’s status as a world fashion player. London Fashion Week runs from Sept 17-21st.
