In the fashion world, London Fashion Week is the big event on the capital’s calendar, and while there is plenty happening over its seven days, London Fashion Week Festival takes some beating.
Store Studios on the Strand will play host to the event from 23 to 26 February, and there is plenty for fashion fanatics to get excited about, as well as those who wish to broaden their knowledge.
The centre piece will be a series of catwalk shows which will unveil some trends expected to hit the streets this coming summer. Although many may choose to attend simply for the shopping – designers are expected to offer discounted rates for those at the event.
There is also an educational angle, with expert talks on how to progress in the fashion industry, as well as some slots for designers to impart with their advice. Or how about a pampering session? They will be delivered by Maybelline New York and TONI&GUY. Tickets range from silver to gold or LUXE, depending on the privileges they offer.
London Fashion Week began in 1983, and has risen to become one of the ‘Big Four’ fashion weeks, along with the showcases in Milan, New York and Paris.
