London Fashion Week – Opens to the public
British Fashion Council (BFC) announces that London Fashion week (LFC) will be opening its doors to the public.
The famously known fashion event has only ever been accessible to the fashion trade and industry professionals. Each year professionals would travel from all over the world to attend LFW, to see the upcoming emerging talent, heritage labels and internationally recognised fashion houses
The London Fashion Week schedule will now facilitate two audiences. The trade audience will attend on schedule catwalk shows and presentations routinely across the 5 days of London Fashion Week from 13th – 17th September 2019. The public audience will be able to purchase a ticket to an immersive London Fashion Week experience that will include a selection of designers that will showcase 6 ticketed catwalk shows which will take place at the official London Fashion Week Hub, on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2019; creative installations, industry-led talk panels from experts offering unparalleled insights to the fashion industry, the DiscoveryLAB, an experiential space where fashion meets art, technology and music and a brand new Designer Exhibition, where the creative work of progressive designers explores the most compelling stories around sustainability, community and ethics.
As part of the new London Fashion Week proposition, the Designer Exhibition will relaunch and will fully embrace #PositiveFashion, the BFC’s initiative designed to celebrate industry best practice and encourage future business decisions to create positive change. The Designer Exhibition will be open to both the trade and public audience and will be the place where guests discover new creative brands and progressive designers, explore compelling stories and learn about how the fashion industry can be used as a force for change.
#PositiveFashion is led by three pillars: Sustainability, Equality & Diversity, Craftsmanship & Community and London Fashion Week is inviting designers to tell their story, showcase how products are made and bring their brands and stories to life for a trade and public audience alike.
Also new this season, the British Fashion Council will host the London Fashion Week schedule within the LetsBab app, allowing attendees to receive up to the minute schedule updates and show start times through notifications on the go. In the meantime, download and browse the LetsBab digital mall
