Most of us don’t get front row tickets to London Fashion Week, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! There’s a whole load of events, screenings and shopping open to the public. Here’s how you can get involved…
WATCH THE LIVE STREAMS
We’ll be live streaming our Topshop Unique and NEWGEN sponsored shows online and at our flagship store in Oxford Circus. You’ll also be able to shop the trends direct from the LFW street stylers and see your own looks appear in our interactive window – just Instagram using #topshopwindow.
SEE A DREAM CATWALK
Simon Costin’s set designs are legendary in the fashion world, earning him work with fashion greats like Tim Walker and Alexander McQueen. This September he’ll be showing a new exhibition at The Fashion Space Gallery, that will question what catwalk shows could be if the possibilities were limitless. We can’t wait to see where his imagination has taken him!
SHOP CATWALK DESIGNS ON EBAY
This season the British Fashion Council has teamed up with eBay to support five up-and-coming Fashion Week designers with a new initiative, BFC Contemporary. As part of the launch, each designer will create a limited edition item that captures the essence of their signature aesthetic. You can shop the designs on eBay’s fashion section as well as at the BFC pop-up store in Somerset House during London Fashion Week.
BECOME A SHOE DESIGNER
Fancy yourself as the next Sophia Webster? From 13 until 21 September, London College of Fashion are opening its doors to anyone who’s interested in learning more about the art of making shoes. You’ll learn all the tricks of the trade from emerging and established footwear designers and best news of all, it’s free! Just sign up online.
