Everything You Need to Know About London Fashion Week in September 2023

Dates, designers and how to tune in.

Last Updated on September 12, 2023

Wondering when London Fashion Week is happening, how to tune into the action and which designers will be presenting their collections? You’ve come to the right place. London Fashion Week is returning in just a few days this September after a successful show last February, when designers showcased their incredible Autumn/Winter 2023 ready-to-wear collections both online in the form of physical shows.

But it’s not exclusive to those who happen to be in London. 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 now the most prestigious and coveted fashion event in the country. The next event isn’t far away. In September, many of the world’s most esteemed designers will be returning to the capital. Attendees will be treated to a private viewing of the Spring/Summer 2024 collections, which will inform the trends for next year.

When is London Fashion Week?

LFW will take over the city from 15th to 19th September in 2023, with renowned fashion houses showcasing their latest cutting-edge designs for Spring/Summer 2024. The event, featuring both womenswear and menswear, will take place both physically and digitally so those lucky enough to be invited will see the shows in person while everyone else can tune in online.

The next event will take place in February 2024, when designers will be previewing their AW24 collections.

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.

How do you get into LFW?

LFW is 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. In June however, much of London opened up for Fashion Week in a City Wide Celebration as part of the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s Let’s Do London campaign.
