London Fashion Week Festival is an event that runs the week after London Fashion Week. Here you can shop designers, listen to talks by people in the industry, and also view catwalk shows by those who were showcased at London Fashion Week, where you can see what the biggest trends of the next season are.
One of my closest friends in my uni flat was able to get hold of three silver tickets for the event, so she decided to take me and another friend from the flat with her to the festival.
A silver ticket gave us access to the event, to shop the designers, attend talks and catwalks, and also meant that we received a free tote bag designed by Vivienne Westwood!
We arrived at the event in the early afternoon and went straight to the catwalk. The show we were attending was the Huishan Zhang show, who is an upcoming designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins and went on to design for House of Dior. His luxurious brand shows his “Eastern heritage meeting Western influences”. Check out his collections at huishanzhang.com.
After watching the show we went on to look around all the designer stalls and finished the day off with cocktails at the champagne bar. Overall a very successful day!
