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 able to buy tickets to the shows at London Fashion Week, but this year you can tune in online as it’s “digital first”.

Alternatively you can attend London Fashion Week Festival for insider talks, catwalk shows and exclusive shopping.
