London socks it to 'em in fashion stakes
London is the UK's most stylish city and is also the place where the most eclectic tastes can be found, according to a new poll.

Those living in the capital have the best sense when it comes to socks, clothes and jewellery, the Clothes Show London reveals.

Meanwhile, people further north are more open to trying new trends when it comes to their legwear, with Birmingham said to be the city with the most invention.

Scots in Glasgow love labels the most, while Liverpudlians are the biggest fans of shoes - and accompanying socks, tights and other accessories.

"These findings give a fascinating insight into how fashion and style in the UK differs across its major cities and demonstrates the ongoing enthusiasm and adventure with which Britons see their own style," comments Gavin Brown, managing director of the show.
