Vogue's Online Fashion Week celebrates shopping on the web and the timing for Christmas present-buying is perfect. Every participating company (think designer labels like Chanel and Alexander McQueen) to high street brands (including Topshop and Reiss), is offering special online events, prizes, discounts or free gifts. Celebrity wish lists and 'favourite fashion moments' are guaranteed to get you in the mood. How about starting with Anya Hindmarch's online snowglobe hunt? Find all five globes around Anya's site and you could win this gorgeous Valorie clutch...
In the vein of Vogue's Fashion Night In (but for a whole week!), this is another chance to be involved in an innovative, one-of-a-kind event from British Vogue ... and get that festive feeling. Here are some Online Fashion Week shopping highlights:
