London Fashion Week A/W 14 (Autumn/Winter) starts this week so we thought we’d share some of our tips with you.
London Fashion Week can be best experienced online, from the comfort of your own Sofa, bed or sofa bed.
Video streaming of some of the biggest shows is available Friday-Monday here: http://bit.ly/LFWLive
Everyone can enjoy the grand entrances (and cars with tinted windows arriving) in person at Somerset House and possibly even get photos with some of the stars in attendance.
To see to shows you need TICKETS, which are hard to come by considering LFW a trade-only event (buyers, press and the famous). Your best bet is to find a friend that’s working there and seeing if they have a spare ticket! We don’t recommend working for free to get tickets - find out more about your rights as an intern here.
There are lots of satellite events, parties and small ‘Fashion Week’ branded festivities which aren’t all official events so be aware what you’re actually paying for.
London Fashion Weekend (Feb 20th - 23rd) IS open to the public and you can get tickets for it here which start around £22 each.
Our top (kind of) FREE fashion week event can best be enjoyed from the top deck of any London buses that travel along The Strand. Artist and photography Juergen Teller is exhibiting work on the top of bus stops along The Strand which are definitely worth a look.
There are plenty of other Fashion themed events across London to check out:
