From global, premium brand names to up-and-coming chic designers; household names and even the appearance of high street brands, London Fashion Week certainly offers diversity.
Public-facing shows are back
As the first international fashion week to open its doors to the wider public, London Fashion Week is once again opening its door to the wider public. Following the success from London Fashion Week September 2019, this year sees public catwalk shows from Temperley London and De La Vali.
