After being forced to take a break due to the pandemic, the celebration of British fashion returned, and as life became normal, so too had London Fashion Week.
2021 introduced the hybrid of digital-physical shows and was included in this year’s programme, too, meaning more people had the chance to witness the magic of LFW from the comfort of their own homes.
There’s been no need to get dressed up (although that’s half the fun) or even leave the house, as many of the shows are streamed online.
Since 1983, London Fashion Week has been held twice a year and is one of the most exciting and coveted events in the London fashion scene. Crossing our fingers that it will never be cancelled again!
With the new year rolling around, this means another fashion week to look forward to, and I’m excited to see what the week-long fashion event has planned for 2023.

When is London Fashion Week?
The next London Fashion Week will occur in February, from 17th – 21st February 2023. As another hybrid digital and physical event, it will feature menswear, womenswear and gender-neutral Fall Winter 2024 collections.
No schedule has been announced yet, but you can expect amazing catwalk shows, innovative presentations, and exciting events happening throughout London.
LFW will continue with additional shows on 10th – 12th June and for the Spring Summer 2024 collection on the 15th – 19th of September.
The schedule for February 2023 London Fashion Week hasn’t been announced yet, so we don’t know the lineup of designers or any upcoming presentations.
We will update this article with any new information that will come in the next few weeks, so make sure to bookmark our page.

Who organises LFW?
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. You usually need to be invited by the specific designer’s press team to attend shows, 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.
We hope this will continue next year, we just need to wait for their programme release.
Where is London Fashion Week held?
The main hub of activity is held at Somerset House, 180 The Strand, London, with various shows held at different locations across the British Capital.
Many of the shows were broadcast online this year, allowing fashion fans and followers to watch along.
How do I watch LFW online?
You can watch LFW on londonfashionweek.co.uk.
Will London Fashion Week Festival be held?
LFW Festival has been cancelled over the last few seasons due to the pandemic.
The LFW festival was a ticketed event, with prices varying depending on whether you are 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.
