Brit talent returns to Fashion Week

LONDON Fashion Week kicked off with the usual smatterings of fresh new talent over the weekend, but all minds were fixed on the return to the UK of iconic brands Burberry, Pringle and Matthew Williamson. <br /><br />Williamson, who earlier this year unveiled a fashion line for high-street giant H&amp;M, yesterday returned after seven years in New York to show in London, ahead of today&rsquo;s show by iconic British brand Pringle of Scotland. Burberry, which is banking on strong sales of its 2010 spring/ summer collection to see off the recession, will take centre stage tomorrow. <br /><br />The event&rsquo;s launch on Friday ended in a reception at Gordon Brown&rsquo;s 10 Downing Street residence, hosted by his wife Sarah.
