With work schedules and travel arrangements, it’s hard for most people to enjoy the full week. Most visitors to London fashion week have just a few days to fit in as much as they can. So, we thought we’d lend a hand by providing a helpful two-day itinerary for London fashion week.
Remember, if you only have two days, you want to be sure you get to see everything you want. Check the show schedules well in advance and book tickets to your favourite shows. That way, you’ll ensure you don’t miss out on anything you most want to see. Many of the popular shows sell out quite quickly, so be ready to get your tickets as soon as they become available.
Once you’ve planned all the shows and talks you want to attend, make sure you double-check your timings and plan how long it will take you to get to each venue. But to make sure you have plenty to fill the time between events goes exploring in the city. Head to Oxford Street or Mayfair for an exclusive shopping experience. Head to Oxford Street and indulge your shopping needs at the world-famous Selfridges store or head over to Bond Street for a more up-market shopping experience with stores like Tiffany’s and Cartier. A spot of shopping will give you a perfect chance to pull together the ideal outfit for your fashion week outings. Plus, exploring the city gives you an excellent opportunity to admire all the fantastic street fashion on show during London fashion week.
