Preen is to return to London Fashion Week this September.

The British fashion label has shown in New York for the past five years and now design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi say they can't wait to return to their home city.

They said: ''We are delighted to be part of LFW again, it feels great to back on our own turf.''

Fashion Council chief executive Caroline Rush added: ''It's great to see the Preen mainline collection returning to show in London, they will be an exciting and much anticipated addition to the LFW schedule.''

The London-based label is known for its sculpted but feminine creations and and celebrity fans include Kristen Stewart, Michelle Obama and Scarlett Johansson.

They last showed their label in London in February 2007 at Fulham football stadium, before presenting their spring/summer 2008 collection in New York in September 2007.

The move follows in the footsteps of Matthew Williamson and Jonathan Saunders who have returned to London following stints on the New York Fashion Week schedule.
