London Fashion Week (LFW) is undoubtedly one of the most hotly-anticipated fashion events – not just in the UK, but all around the globe.
And yes, you can definitely include me in the long list of people who want to be part of it.
If you’re interested in fashion, I’m sure you’re in the same boat – so how can we get a piece of the pie and attend LFW?

Can you buy tickets to London Fashion Week?
Unfortunately, you can’t buy tickets to the shows – but there are a couple of other 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.
Is London Fashion Week open to the public?
Sadly LFW isn’t open to the public, but the event’s shift to phygital — a combination of physical and digital shows — has made it possible for all of us to witness the magic in the comfort of our homes.
Some of my favourites, such as Rejina Pyo, Simone Rocha and Rixo, are usually part of the LFW line-up and kindly livestream their shows for fans to watch online.
If you’re curious to see which designers are going to be showing their new collections this season, keep your eyes peeled. The line-up hasn’t been announced yet.
