To highlight the industry, the Mayor is opening a competition to find the most stylish postcode in the capital.

Those entering have the chance of winning a made-to-measure three-piece suit by E. Tautz, a pair of sharp shoes by Mr. Hare and a delightful tartan dog designed by Christopher Raeburn

Five runners-up will receive tickets to see the Hello My Name is Paul Smith exhibition at the Design Museum.
