How to Get Tickets for London Fashion Week
The biggest fashion event of the year is invite-only for most of the events, so unless you’re a fashion buyer, a celebrity, or a big name in the fashion industry, you’re unlikely to get to see the catwalk shows in person.
One notable exception is bloggers and social influencers – if you’re a fashion blogger or vlogger and have a significant following, you may be eligible to attend. You’ll need an Instagram following of at least 35k, 80k YouTube subscribers, or a blog with over 15,000 monthly unique visitors. You must also show a clear interest in supporting British fashion and designers on all your channels.
As the vetting process takes some time and the British Fashion Council receives a high volume of applications, you’re probably too late this time round. But at least you have an incentive to build your followers before next season!
However, there’s no need to miss out if you can’t get your hands on a ticket. Most of the events will be available to watch online and several catwalk shows are live-streamed so you’ll get to see the season’s new looks as the same time as the industry experts.
There are also always other fashion-related events around London during Fashion Week.
