If like Carrie Bradshaw, you “like your money where you can see it. In your closet,” then we have all the information you need to know about the event of the year.
London Fashion Week is notoriously hard to get a ticket to. Unless you’re a celebrity, the press, a top influencer, buyer, model or similar mover and shaker of the fash pack, you can’t get in.
Well, not anymore. For only the second time in the history of LFW (or any global Fashion Week for that matter) mere mortals can get involved in the action as a selection of shows and events will be open to the public. Taking place on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th February 2020, two of London’s top designers will be offering standard and VIP ticket access to their shows.
For self-confessed fashion fans there’s nothing quite like the lights coming down, the music pumping up and a bevy of models taking to the catwalk to showcase a designer’s vision for the very first time. But iconic British brand Temperley London – known for its ethereal fabrics, fairy tale embellishment and rainbow-hued femininity, and DE LA VALI – bold, playful and inspired by the hedonism of Ibiza – will be opening their shows up to the public. With ticket prices starting at £135, it’s the perfect weekend treat for style aficionados.
What’s more, ticket holders will also be granted access to the London Fashion Week Hub (previously a strictly press, industry and media-only zone), where they’ll find immersive and innovative experiences, creative installations and the discoveryLAB – an inspiring space that merges fashion with art, technology, music and the future of fashion.
Plus, access to the #PositiveFashion Designer Exhibition where the creative work of designers will be showcased to explore the most important narratives of the fashion industry right now, from sustainability to community and ethics.
Guests will also receive complimentary drinks and a free LFW tote bag to take away. And if that weren’t enough to peak your interest, The Handbook has also teamed up with the folk at Fashion Week to give readers an exclusive 20% off ticket prices.

So, put your best Manolo’d foot forward and grab your front row seat (OK, well maybe not front row) and be one of the first Londoners not in the fashion industry to see London Fashion Week first-hand.
