Property developer Capco is hoping to redevelop Floral Street in Covent Garden into an upmarket fashion destination and has commissioned Canadian artist Donald Robertson - "the Andy Warhol of Instagram"  - to take over the shopping district with five bespoke pieces of artwork. 

From today, a runway of five floral and fashion themed illustrations will be placed along Floral Street. The aim is to create buzz around the new "luxury" proposotion of Covent Garden, which will be bolstered with a new courtyard and flagship retail stores from 2017.
