Our favourite week of the year is upon us once again. And that only means one thing, the fashion event of the season, it's London Fashion Week!!
Held on 17th-21st February 2017, the schedule is stacked with designer talent such as Molly Goddard, Simone Rocha, Roksanda and Mearques’ Almeida to name but a few. Their collections are guaranteed to turn heads and we will be excitedly watching London Fashion Weeks Instagram for updates and pictures daily.
London is set to be buzzing with atmosphere as people come from near and far to be a part of LFW. Organised by the British Council, it takes place twice a year and gives international talent a chance to present their collections to global press, industry buyers, bloggers, photographers and chancers.
This year we see the event held at The Royal Society Of Arts Durham House Street.
