Paris Fashion Week will be going ahead with a mix of physical and digital shows, and so will New York Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and of course London Fashion Week.

    The BFC announced that this September, the schedule has been split into three sections and includes brands showing digitally, physically or both. Here’s everything you need to know about this season’s happenings…

    London Fashion Week 2020 dates

    This season, LFW will take place from Thursday 17th to Tuesday 22nd February – just after New York Fashion Week.

    London Fashion Week 2020 tickets

    The physical shows will be even more restricted in terms of seating, to follow the government guidelines on social distancing, so for those ticket requests will be handled by the designers’ PRs and will be limited to press, buyers, and celebrities. However the good news is that the digital shows will be accessible to everyone, so you can view them from the comfort of your own home on the London Fashion Week website, as well as on social media.

    Tickets are available in both standard and VIP access and grant full access to the London Fashion Week Hub, previously exclusively open to press, industry and media.
