The complete guide to London Fashion Week 2017

From the designers to how to get tickets, we've got you covered

One of the UK’s most coveted events of the year, London Fashion Week 2017 is fast approaching. Organised by the British Fashion Council, bloggers, press and fashion influencers alike will flock to the centre of the capital city to get the scoop on what everyone will be wearing next season.

In terms of location, the BFC are mixing things up again this year with the main venue now The Store Studios, 180 Strand. London Fashion Week moved from Somerset House to a new home Brewer Street Car Park, Soho, in 2015, where it has been held for the last three seasons.

From the week’s schedule to who will be in attendance and London Fashion Week’s best moments, this is everything you need to know about this year’s happenings…

London Fashion Week 2017 dates

This year, LFW will take place from Friday 17th to Tuesday 21st February – clashing with New York Fashion Week 2017 on its first day. Better book your private jet if you’re hoping to make both events.

London Fashion Week 2017 tickets

Unfortunately, unless you’re a fashion buyer, blogger or press, it’s very unlikely you’ll be sitting on the FROW any time soon. However, if you are a fashion blogger, you can complete an online registration form to be in with the chance of cinching an exclusive spot on the guest list. You do have to be organised and register a few weeks’ in advance, so it’s unlikely you’ll make it this time around. Something to remember for next time, eh?

It’s not all doom and gloom if you don’t get tickets, though. Formerly known as London Fashion Weekend, London Fashion Week Festival is the chance for those downtrodden fashion lovers (who aren’t quite high profile enough to attend the main event) to join in on the fun. Featuring catwalk shows, industry trends and the chance to shop from a range of designer pieces, it’s every fashion enthusiasts must-attend.

London Fashion Week 2017 schedule

Hotly anticipated at LFW over the course of the week are the likes of Burberry, Topshop Unique, Anya Hindmarch, Mary Katrantzou, Charlotte Olympia and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi (to name but a few).

The full schedule is available at londonfashionweek.co.uk, and you can keep up-to-date with the events as they happen through the official live stream.
