As we all know, London Fashion Week is one of the busiest times of the year for the fashion industry, as well as being the most lucrative time for the multibillion pound industry. Since there are so many events and designer showings during this amazing time in the UK’s capital, I've made it simpler for you by picking out the 5 fashion shows during this week that you must go see.
The Angels of Fashion
On September 14 2013 between 3pm-9pm, The Angels of Fashion will be launching its annual fashion event in order to raise funds for the Prince's Trust, an organization which helps thousands of people between the ages of 13 and 30 find jobs. This event will bring international and British fashion designers together on the runway in order to help the disadvantaged get back on their feet. It is being sponsored by The Body Shop, Chic Management, Superstar Magazine, Web Design Home and Velvet Magazine, and is expected to be covered by many different celebrities, such as Lewis-Duncan Weedon, Annaliese Dayes and Laila Khalid, just to name a few. The event will be held at the Hilton London Paddington Hotel at 146 Praed Street, London, W2 1EE.
The Superstar Club is a London-based fashion-centric social network that puts on only the hottest invitation-only fashion events, hosted and created by Adam Danyal. These events are only for the exclusive elite of the fashion world. Adam has made an environment where designers, photographers, stylists and models can all go to meet new people and make more contacts. The Superstar Club always hosts at least three fashion-networking parties during the year, but the biggest party is of course the pre-London Fashion Week party. Each year, this elite party has a different creative theme. If you’re into fashion, then this is the event for you. It's more than just partying; it's creating a lifestyle of success.
On September 15 2013 between 10am-4pm, Manolo Blahnik models will be strutting their usual stuff on the London catwalk. Blahnik will be showing his latest collection of shoes (and who doesn’t love a good pair of designer shows, I mean everyone’s seen Sex in the City). Mr. Blahnik has a loyal band of globetrotters that follow his collections around the world, so while you're sitting in the crowd, think of all the celebrities that have sat in those seats. I say if you can get your hands on ticket, you must go and see what’s next in line when it comes to footwear.
On September 16 2013 at 4:30pm, Burberry will be showing off their forever stunning British designs. Their well-tailored looks for boys and girls draw in lots of attention. It’s become so popular now, they only send out a few invitations to some people in the industry. I guess that’s how you can tell if you are attending a truly fabulous event; if the amount of invitations are limited!
adidas by Stella McCartney
On September 17th 2013, between 10:30-12:30, Stella McCartney will be taking over the famous sports brand adidas for the whole of London to see. As Stella has become a well-known name in the industry, it will be inspiring to see how she imagines the brand and its direction into mainstream fashion. I for one would love to go see this show; it will definitely be one of the un-missable ones during fashion week. It will be something everyone talks about after the models strut their stuff down the stage, so don’t miss it! Be part of the group that knows what’s going on.
