Why we’re looking forward to London Fashion Week 2018

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 2018, showing AW18, 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.

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 season’s happenings…

London Fashion Week 2018 dates

This season, LFW will take place from Friday 16th to Tuesday 20th February – just after New York Fashion Week.

London Fashion Week 2018 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 2018 schedule

It’s all change at LFW again this season: Topshop isn’t hosting a runway show, nor is Anya Hindmarch, though their are plans for a consumer ‘see-now-buy-now’ event (we’re pretty excited about Victoria Beckham finally bringing her show to London next season though).

That said, there are certainly plenty of shows to be excited about: after a one season break, Mulberry is coming back with a bang, and we can expect great sartorial offerings from the likes of A.W.A.K.E, Erdem and JW Anderson. Plus, it’s Christopher Bailey’s last show for Burberry, so that’s one not to miss.

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.
