The annual event welcomes 30,000 visitors and hosts over 40 performances each season.

This year we will see the latest collections from the likes of Gucci, Prada, Moschino and Versace.

It comes after Alexander Usyk described Anthony as a “poor fool” for his post-fight outburst after losing to the Ukrainian in their heavyweight title rematch last month.

Anthony was left furious afterwards, throwing two of Usyk’s belts out of the ring and running away before returning to shake his hand.

The Briton then took the microphone and began a profanity-laced tirade discussing the fight, his career, the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, before also taking on Usyk.

Although Usyk did not comment on Joshua’s outlandish antics at the time and appeared forgiving in his own post-fight interview, he has hit out at his opponent now that the dust has settled.

“I thought, ‘What a poor fool.’ Usyk said on YouTube channel USYK17. “He reminded me of a little boy who wanted to play with a ball, but it was taken away from him, so he decided to throw it over the neighbor’s fence.”

Anthony, who is due to face Tyson Fury in a mouth-watering fight in Britain in December, gave one of the most remarkable post-fight speeches in boxing after failing to regain his heavyweight belts on August 20.

“If you knew my story, you would understand the passion. I’m not an amateur boxer from the age of five who was an elite prospect from his youth,” Joshua said. “I was going to jail, got bail and started training my girl, I wanted to be able to fight.

“Stealing this Usyk, sorry, but it’s because of the passion we put into it. This guy who beat me tonight, maybe I could have done better, but it shows the level of hard work I put in, so please applaud him as our world heavyweight champion.

“I’m not a 12-round fighter, look at me, I’m a new breed of heavyweight, Mike Tyson, Sonny Liston, Jack Dempsey, ‘you don’t throw combinations like Rocky Marciano,’ I’m 18 stone, I’m heavy, hard work .

“This boy right here is a phenomenal talent, we’ll give him three cheers.”
