How to make the most of your time at London Fashion Week
With so much to see and do, you may find it hard to fathom how exactly you can stand out from the crowd, but luckily, we have plenty of tips and tricks to help you make your mark and make the most of the opportunity.
Choose your events carefully
The chances are that you won’t have the funds to attend every event at London Fashion Week, so you’ll need to choose which day to attend and whether you want to be there in the morning, afternoon, or evening. The best way to do this is by taking a close look at the schedule that’s available online, so that you can choose to see the catwalks that interest you the most.
Book a ticket that includes everything you want to do
When it comes to booking your ticket, you’ll find that there are three options available to purchase: bronze, silver, and gold. These will give you access to various events and activities, with the least expensive of these offering a more limited package than the most. Although your budget will naturally play a role in your decision, we recommend buying the costliest ticket you can afford to get the best possible LFW experience.
Dress the part
Although you’re free to wear what you wish, most LFW attendees will dress to the nines, making a real occasion of the event, so if you want to not only fit in but also make your mark, we suggest that you dress to impress. Throw subtlety out of the window, put your best (style) foot forward, and enjoy expressing your individuality for all to see.
Look the part
LFW is all about celebrating opulence and decadence, so if you really want to treat yourself, there is one more thing we suggest that you do, and that’s to show up in style. Consider booking a luxury car with driver – one who will provide a chauffeur service – so that when you rock up, all eyes are on you.
