LFW has been virtual over the past few seasons due to coronavirus and perhaps one of the few positives to come out of the pandemic is that this continued to the most recent Fashion Week, much of which is still available to watch online.

When is London Fashion Week 2021?

The most recent LFW took place in September and showcased SS22 collections to the fashion crowd.

The next event to take place will be in February, with designers presenting their AW22 collections.

It roughly follows the same time schedules each year, showing each new season early. This then informs the high-street fashion market’s designs and upcoming trends.

Read about how the seasons work in more detail here.

Who organises LFW 2021?

The British Fashion Council (BFC) organises London Fashion Week shows and events every year.

The BFC are a non-for-profit organisation, which was founded in 1983.

As well as LFW, they also organise London Fashion Week Men’s, The Fashion Awards, LONDON show ROOMS and London Fashion Week Festival every year.

As well as supporting the British fashion industry, the BFC are also responsible for supporting the next generation of designers. They supervise fashion higher education and apprenticeships in the industry.

How do you get into LFW?

LFW is usually not open to the public. To attend shows, you usually either need to be invited by the specific designer’s press team or you can apply for a ticket yourself if you’re an industry leader.

If you intend to do the latter, simply go to the London Fashion Week website, find the appropriate designer’s press team contact details and email them directly, explaining why you should attend.

It’s worth doing this months in advance as the tickets are assigned early.

Can I get tickets for LFW?

Unfortunately it’s not as easy as buying tickets to LFW, as you have to be invited to the shows to attend.

Much of London was opened up during the last Fashion Week in a City Wide Celebration as part of the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s Let’s Do London campaign.

This is set to continue through to November, so make sure you check out the programme.

Will London Fashion Week Festival be held in 2021?

LFW Festival has been cancelled over the last few seasons due to the pandemic.

It last took place in February 2020 and was a ticketed event, with prices varying depending on whether buying insider or front row access.

LFW Festival is a spin-off of London Fashion Week, bringing one of the world’s biggest fashion events to the public. Attendees will get the chance to access catwalk shows, industry talks, access to a hospitality lounge and more.
