If you're not watching Burberry Prorsum's London Fashion Week show on your computer screen right here on Fashionising.com, you may wish to experience it in an even bigger way: on the iconic 32 metre digital screen in London's Picadilly Circus.

The show starts at 4pm (GMT) - so if you're around London check it out on the big screen at Picadilly Circus for a larger-than-life view, otherwise you can watch the Burberry Prorsum live stream from anywhere in the world be following that link.

Since its last run, LMFF (L'Oreal Melbourne fashion festival) has been wrapped up, shipped off, prodded, poked, inspected, reshaped, revived and reformed... But as to how it will look when it gets to the end of the conveyor belt and the box pops open, we shall not know until next week. Looking at the program, however, there are plenty of new and potentially improved events to mark in your calendar - and so, in the lead-up to the festival, we thought we'd highlight five of the things that are catching our eye this year.

Opening the festival in unconventional style comes a new addition to the LMFF program: Fashion Full Stop. Sounding more like a Victoria's Secret spectacular than a conventional parade (only sans the Angels) Monday's opening event, accessible to the public, will be a 50 minute affair of live performances, DJs, dancers, and of course a runway show.

Grant Pearce, the new Festival Director, put it thus:

"This year we are taking Opening Party to the people with a celebration that thousands of fashion and music enthusiasts can enjoy. LMFF is the largest consumer fashion event in the world so it is only fitting that we kick start the Festival with an event of this scale."

After his roles at Vogue and GQ, we can only say that we're hopeful for what Pearce might deliver.

Tickets are being sold through ticketmaster.com.au.

It may seem rather odd for me, one of the fairer sex, to say so - but one of the things I'm looking forward to most on the LMFF (L'Oreal Melbourne fashion festival) cultural program is ManStyle: an exhibition about all things menswear.

Why am I so enthused about an exhibition that's neither about nor aimed at my gender? The National Gallery of Victoria exhibition will showcase men's fashion from the eighteenth century to the present day, and in that there's an element of historical fascination that goes beyond gender. Add to that how much of an influence menswear can be on womenswear (and personally I take inspiration from menswear quite regularly) and you have me there with bells on.

Finally with menswear being generally neglected over the more attention-grabbing shoes and frocks, it's something of a coup to have a prominent cultural institution dedicate more than 8 months (March 11 - November 27, 2011) to showcasing it.

ManStyle at NGV is free to visit, and also stay tuned for details on special events as part of the exhibition.

When it comes to creativity and passion, you can't keep a good student down; and so it is that we always await with anticipation the graduate components of Melbourne's fashion weeks. At next week's LMFF (L'Oreal Melbourne fashion festival) it's Wednesday night's National Graduate Showcase that fills the student space. With what we expect to be 12 impressive finalists and one inspiring show, this one makes our must-see list.

Rounding out our series of 5 top things to see and do at LMFF (L'Oreal Melbourne fashion festival) is Rising 5. And no we didn't just pick it because of the name. Opening to the public on March 19 at the Atrium, Federation Square, Rising 5 pairs eight influential Australian designers with Mark Ruff, one of the world's leading 3D photographers.

The unique project will showcase designs by Dhini, J'Aton Couture, Ellison, Lui Hon, Richard Nylon Millinery, Nadia Napreychikov, Cami James, Madame Virtue & Co, and Metal Couture - an impressive list that certainly made us sit up and take notice. The exhibition runs until April 1, 2011.
