28 Of LFW’s Best Runway Shows

By Lottie Hulme |
13th February 2019

The next fashion week in London takes place this week from the 14-19 of February and we can’t flippin’ wait! The bi-annual babe of an event is a big deal across many a calendar and this year is no exception to the rule. The event provides us with an in-person insight as to what the new fashion season is going to triumph; from frills, to tassels, to that weird ‘dad bod’ trend that took to the catwalks in 2018. Whilst we can’t promise you a front row seat next to Iris Apfel, we can promise an eclectic range of catwalks to strut down to.

The main hub of action on the official schedule will take place at the Store Studios at 180 Strand in London, so if you’re up for a celeb spot and a peek at the latest trends then that’s where to head.
