London Fashion Week (LFW) is one of the most exciting events to happen in the UK, but how often does it happen?
The vibrant display of couture at the event is something fashion lovers look forward to both across the country and the entire world. And that’s because it’s been a venue for creative geniuses like Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood to showcase their designs for decades now.
Here, we explain how often we get to see these creations being showcased on the runway.
How often does London Fashion Week take place?
London Fashion Week is a biannual event, taking place in February and September. A smaller event also happens in June, when recent fashion design graduates showcase their work to industry experts.
Before the pandemic, London Fashion Week Men’s also took place in January each year – but the menswear collections have now been merged into February’s event to create a genderless showcase each year.
Speaking of the move towards a more progressive Fashion Week, BFC chairwoman Caroline Rush said, “As the fashion industry moves towards a more sustainable and responsible future in line with the newly formed Institute of Positive Fashion [the BFC’s responsible fashion hub], our aim is to continue to redefine our fashion week model, embracing digital and technological innovation while offering ideas and solutions that will work for all designer businesses.”
When is London Fashion Week 2023?
London Fashion Week is set to return from September 15th to September 19th, 2023, when designers will present their SS24 collections.
Which designers will showcase their collections?
The schedule is to be confirmed, but check back soon for more information.
Can the public go to London Fashion Week?
Previously, you needed to be invited by a designer’s press team or be a fashion industry insider to get a ticket to see the shows. This time, some shows can be live-streamed at home.
Physical accreditation has also started for those who work in the press and other fashion-related industries. You may apply here if you would like to apply for accreditation to see the collections live.
