Bloggers Guide to Experiencing London Fashion Week

If you are someone that is even remotely interested in the world of fashion, you have definitely heard of London fashion week. Every year, London fashion week gives all the most popular designers a chance to showcase their new work to the entire work. All of the big names are there and if you’re lucky enough you may be one of the select few to get an invite. But if you have never been there before, you may not know the best way to properly enjoy the experience and get the most out of the short week. Fear not, we searched the internet and found some of the best advice given by bloggers on how to really make the most of your London fashion week experience.

 

Take pictures

Though some designers may make specific requests for people not to record their work, if you can you should take as many pictures as you can. You are going to see a lot of work showcased during the week so it may be easy to forget some of the runways among all of the excitement. Having pictures stored will give you the chance to look back and pick up any fashion trends that may be hitting the highstreets in the upcoming months. Doing this will mean that you can publish up and coming reviews way before anyone else can, which will really give you the upper hand if you are a blogger. A good example of this is when christian message t-shirts hit the runway last year. Many bloggers caught on to the fact that these t-shirts were gaining popularity and were able to publish some articles about them, which brought much more traffic to their blogs.

 

Get involved

Fashion week really brings the city of London to life, way past the confines of the runway. In between fashion shows, there are plenty of crazy events that you can really get stuck into which will make your London fashion week experience way more memorable.

As previously stated, there are going to be a lot of big names at London fashion week and so this will be the perfect opportunity to make some friends within the industry.
