Last Friday I attended London Fashion Weekend. Is it part of LFW I hear you ask?
What is the difference between London Fashion Week and Vodafone London Fashion Weekend?
London Fashion Week is a trade event for fashion industry professionals who must register or be invited in order to attend. Vodafone London Fashion Weekend is the consumer event that follows directly on from London Fashion Week, using the same exhibition and catwalk venue. Vodafone London Fashion Weekend is essentially a designer shopping event, where members of the public can shop from designers of London Fashion Week calibre, from the high profile to the emerging, at reduced prices.

Surrounding the make over stands were dozens of accessory brand names selling at discount prices. This year, a vintage section was set up. You can not deny that the London fashion pack has gone vintage crazy, original, cheap and special. Others brands included Elizabeth Lau, Muuba, Sass & Bide, Vivienne Westwood, DKNY the list goes on…..
A catwalk was also taking place at specific time slots which was presented by Grace Woodward. Showcasing some of our very own british designers and current trends.
If you didn’t get to go this season, I would certainly check it out next season. Tickets are sold to the public and if not for shopping, it is great for people watching and trend spotting.
