We all know it, London is the most fashionable city in the world and soon the bar is going to be raised again with the return of London Fashion Weekend which will see the streets of the city filled by sunglasses adorned fashionistas and preened glamazons. In fact during the 4 day fashion event, over 15,000 people will attend to top up their fashion knowledge and get first hand glimpses at up-coming fashion trends.
The prestigious Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road will once again be home to LFWend, organised by the British Fashion Council, providing the perfect backdrop to the ultimate fashion experience.
Besides the catwalk shows, which will see J.JS Lee, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Edeline Lee and SIBLING showcase their AW16 collections at the bi-annual event, attendees can also shop to their heart’s (and bank balance’s) content in curated shopping galleries featuring over 150 international and British brands plus a whole host of industry talks and style presentations. Gain invaluable insight into the industry at the Industry Talk Series, moderated by Fashion Stylist Martha Ward, and Style Presentations, styled by ES Magazine’s Junior Fashion Editor Jenny Kennedy.
Keep an eye out for Jack Guinness and Laura Jackson who will host the weekend’s catwalk shows, with each day dedicated to a different British design talent. Plus, don’t miss this season’s London Fashion Weekend limited edition tote bag designed by the 2016 winner of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, Sophia Webster, included with silver, gold and Luxe tickets and available to buy for bronze ticket holders (subject to availability). The delicate artwork on the bag was inspired by beautiful tropical bird feathers based on one of Sophia’s signature prints from her SS17 collection.
Home-grown beauty, English model and London Fashion Weekend Ambassador, Daisy Lowe said: ‘London Fashion Weekend is great for any fashion lover, allowing them exclusive access and insight into the fashion industry. There really is something for everyone from catwalk shows and industry talks, to the best shopping London has to offer.’
We’ll see you there Daisy!
London Fashion Weekend takes place at the Saatchi Gallery, Thursday 22nd – Sunday 25th September 2016.
