London Fashion Week AW13 goes bright and bold Yahoo! Lifestyle gives you exclusive access to day 1 at London Fashion Week AW13

London Fashion Week AW13 has begun, with the next five days promising some serious runway style, trends and inspirational ideas coming your way.

The likes of Julien Macdonald, Topshop Unique, Burberry Prorsum, Issa, Rihanna for River Island and PPQ will all be showcasing their autumn/winter shows over the week, making for a jam-packed few days.

But just in case you thought only Olivia Palermo and the FROW gang got a bird's eye view of the action - then think again.

We thought it was high time YOU were granted exclusive access to LFW, so each day as well as bringing you all the up-to-the-minute runway reports, live show news and style pics - we're taking YOU THERE.

Along with a raft of fashion and beauty experts, each day we'll be talking through the shows you need to know about, giving you a daily bulletin of trends, highlights and downright runway wackiness.

In our first episode, we reveal the biggest trends, the bold and bright fashion that's inspiring us - as well as the trends we'll be wearing as we take our seats at the shows.

Expect a whole host of fashion coming at you - from the catwalks and street style - a good dose of bright and British style and a lot of silliness - that's something we can't help we're afraid.

What's more is our expert for the day, Jonathan Andrew, who was part of the backstage team at PPQ and LCF, gives us an exclusive interview into how to get the beauty looks from the shows.

Check it out above and tell us what you think over on Twitter, now.
