It’s that time of year again. The city streets will soon swooping with bustling fashion designers rushing between shows, jet lagged models queuing for their make up and dress fittings, and fashionistas dashing from one side of the city to the other, trying to squish in as many catwalks and after-parties as possible over five days. That’s right, London Fashion Week returns 13th – 17th September bringing with it all the new frills, tassels and shamelessly bizarre trends that’ll be in next season.
The main hub of action on the official schedule will take place at The Strand in London, so if you’re trying to grab a sneak peek of the trends, that’s the spot to head.
