It’s a dream for many to be able to attend London Fashion Week, but it might not be as difficult as you might first think.
This year, LFW has three schedules in February, June, and September, which are organized by the British Fashion Council.
Typically held twice a year, LFW showcases the works of over 100 of the world’s most renowned designers to industry professionals.
It’s regarded as one of the ‘big four’ Fashion Week events worldwide, along with those in Paris, Milan, and New York.
The prestigious events have always been exclusive, with attendees being invited by each designer’s press team, but this changed during the pandemic as the event became digital first.
The schedule for June has been confirmed to feature the 2023 collections.
So how can you get in? Here’s what you need to know.
Can the public go to London Fashion Week?
LFW is invite only, but if you don’t manage to secure an invite, you can watch the event online from the comfort of your own home.

How to get tickets to London Fashion Week
You can’t buy tickets to the shows, but there are still a couple of ways to get in.
The first is to get an invitation directly from the team of the designer whose show you want to catch.
The other is to get accredited by the British Fashion Council if you work in fashion as a buyer, photographer, journalist, influencer, blogger or many other roles in the industry.
Those who want to apply for accreditation can do so through the London Fashion Week website.
When is London Fashion Week?
The next LFW is scheduled to take place from June 9th to June 12th, 2023.
After the June event, LFW will return in September to showcase the Spring/Summer 2024 (SS24) collections.
This event is also expected to draw a lot of attention from the fashion industry, with designers showcasing their latest creations for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
What to expect from London Fashion Week
This year, LFW is featuring both womenswear, menswear and gender-neutral collections.
The menswear shows first started in 2012, and the showcase was formally named London Fashion Week Men’s in 2017 before more recently joining up with LFW.
