For all shopaholics living in the UK I can definitely recommend a trip to London Fashion Weekend. Pure retail therapy at it’s best held at the Natural History Museum, South Kensington London in association with Grazia Magazine.
London Fashion Weekend consists of nothing but shopping and pampering with over 100 London Fashion Week designers exhibiting their collections at amazingly reduced prices.
This is the ultimate fashion experience to attend and you can register online now for your exclusive tickets and it’s the only chance you’ll get to visit the London Fashion Week venue. I have been a few times now and I have to say I am never disappointed. It’s such a buzz and you can pick up some exclusive pieces at bargain basement prices. The great thing is finding one off pieces that no-one else will have and it will also open your eyes up to a few unknown designers that you never knew existed.
One of my favourite designers which exhibited last year was Gharani Strok and I was fortunate enough to gain entry into their catwalk show which was a spectacle. Inside the venue the clothes they had to sell were fabulous and well worth a visit this time around.
Not only can you shop til you drop but there are a number of other places to visit whilst inside the venue, why not treat yourself to a makeover by the official make-up brand to London Fashion Weekend, Elizabeth Arden or stumble upon the Superdrug Nail Bar, Tony and Guy demonstrate the latest hair styles live, whilst the eve Magazine team show you how to wear this seasons trends in a fabulous live and professional fashion show.
There is so much to see and do at London Fashion Weekend and I will be very jealous of anybody attending this year. Unfortunately I can’t go this year as I am on my hols but I would love to hear from anyone who goes, tell me what bargains you managed to pick up or which bit you enjoyed the most.
Tickets cost £11.25 (including transaction fee) – A great day out if you love fashion and shopping!
A great tip is to go to London Fashion Weekend on the last day (Sunday 1st Oct) because the designers usually make even bigger reductions, so, more bargains to be had.
