Prose A/W 2012 by Joe Waldron.

As regular readers will know we've been fans of Prose Studio for awhile, so it was very exciting to see them showing once more at London Fashion Week this season - a decision based on the opportunity to show alongside some of the most exciting upcoming designers in fashion, a place that suits Prose well. Designer Miriam Lehle is based in Germany but after an appearance with On/Off in 2009 she returned to the UK last season to show at the main stands in Somerset House. For A/W 2012 she took to the catwalk once more with Fashion Scout.
