Cue the models, the front row of stylish celebrities and the gorgeous collections! Today marks the start of the SS11 London Fashion Week and here at Fashionology we are très excited to see what gems come down the runway!
This year fashion and technology have become closer than ever before with Henry Holland teaming up with Blackberry, Vivienne Tam designing laptops for HP and a number of designers whipping up fashionable iPad cases.
London Fashion Week SS11 looks set to continue along Fashionology lines with some fantastic collaborations. A well kitted outVauxhall Fashion Scout media centre is being sponsored by Sony Vaio, so journalists and press can surf the web on shiny new laptops.
HP has teamed up with ASOS to bring you ASOS Tee-V, a online channel that sets out to bring you up-to-date behind the scenes footage of London Fashion Week.
Come back over the next few days and see what other fabulous Fashionology news we have to report from the LFW runways!

I have just discovered a rather unusual gadget, one that has entertained me so much I simply had to blog about it (although I do recognise its ridiculousness). Introducing the Pileus Internet Umbrella!
This umbrella doesn’t just keep you dry, it has a screen on the underside, a built in camera, motion sensor, GPS and digital compass screen. Never again will you get lost in the rain with this baby!
It is presently just a prototype but has so pretty cool features; the photo function connects you to Flickr so you can be staring up at a sunny sky if you so wish, and also can be used to upload or view videos. This is all done through a wireless Internet connection that is built into the umbrella.
That is not all, the Pileus can also display a 3D on the inside screen so you can literally guide yourself through the city in the rain without getting your iPhone, Smart Phone, paper map wet! See it action here.
They say that soon the Internet will be available everywhere, well with accessories like this being created, I’m starting to see how!
