Put away your Primark and pack up the best of your Prada, because the date for 2018’s London Fashion Week has officially been released! Get ready to watch the biggest names in the industry strut their stuff on the catwalks wearing nothing but the highest couture from head to toe – and here is how you can promise yourself a seat at one of the hottest fashion events of the year.
London Fashion Week 2018 will take place between Friday, February 16 and Tuesday, February 20. Locationwise, many of the events listed as guarenteed on the schedule are said to take place at BFC Show Space, which is located at The Store Studios, 180 Strand, London WC2R 1EA. Other venues for specific shows will be revealed on invitations, which brings us to our next point.
Since a significant number of the events are invitation-only meant for buyers and fashionistas, this does not necessarily mean you have to miss out, as many of them will be available to watch on YouTube. During February 2017, the entire event was live-streamed from the runway, making it available for thousands to watch and experience without having to even purchase a ticket.
Those who prefer to shop until they drop and are more than okay with skipping the week long catwalk parade can skip all the shenanigans and up until the London Fashion Week Festival. This event is essentially a four-day shopping festival that grants shoppers the opportunity to buy designer items at show-executive prices.
However, keep in mind that you need to purchase tickets ahead of time if you want to guarantee yourself a spot. Tickets are sold for $27 for the standard entry, $60 for the silver entry (which includes a catwalk show), and $82 for the gold entry (which includes a catwalk show and a limited edition, Fashion Week inspired tote bag).
