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.
Typically held twice a year, LFW showcases the works of over 100 of the world’s most renowned designers to industry professionals. It will next take place in September this year.
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.
So how can you get in? Here’s what you need to know.

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.
