With the bi-annual event finally here, we’ve decided to bring you a list of the best events during London Fashion Week. And it’s important to note that this fashion week is particularly special. Back in July, the British Fashion Council announced that London Fashion Week would be the first of the four global fashion weeks to open its doors to the public.
Thanks to social media and the internet, fashion weeks have become increasingly accessible to the public. No longer shrouded in exclusivity and secrecy, the events that were previously accessible only to industry insiders and celebrities is now opening its doors.

The London Fashion Week schedule will now facilitate two audiences. The trade audience and a public audience who will be able to purchase a ticket to an immersive London Fashion Week experience. It includes creative installations, industry-led talk panels from experts, the DiscoveryLAB, an experiential space where fashion meets art, technology and music and a brand-new Designer Exhibition, where the work of progressive designers explores the stories around sustainability, community and ethics.
The tickets are still available for purchase online but can be pricey. There are still many events to get involved with if you want to take part in London Fashion Week. Fanfare is hosting an LFW Pop Up Shop with the Lone Design Club in Covent Garden. There will be panels, catwalks, shows and events throughout the full London Fashion Week. For sustainable women's clothing, all in one place this is the perfect event to shop for an ethical wardrobe.
There’s plenty that you can’t afford to miss out on, so here is a list of the best events during London Fashion Week.
