It’s the fashion event of the summer, and all the biggest names and hottest designers are preparing for their involvement. London Fashion Week 17 – the exclusive clothing trade show that takes place twice a year – will be running from the 21 to 24 September 2017. With the likes of Anya Hindmarch and Burberry, Christopher Kane and Emilia Wickstead, Emporio Armani and Erdem, Jasper Conran and Joseph, JW Anderson and Markus Lupfer, Mary Katrantzou and Tommy Hilfiger all showing their latest collections, amongst many others, it’s an event not to be missed.

So, what key things do you need to know in the lead up?

Get your name on the guest list

Firstly, although it’s free for anyone to visit Somerset House and mill around outside amongst the throngs of stylish crowds, enjoying the buzz of all the amazingly dressed attendees, the London Fashion Week events are strictly invite only. If you want to get into any of the shows or parties, you’re going to need a ticket or to have your name on the guest list. You can request these from the PRs, who will be tightly controlling who gets in.

For a full round-up of all the designers showcasing at London Fashion Week, you can find out more here. If you click on each brand, it will give you the press contact and the details for requesting press show tickets. It will also give you the times of each presentation, and any other important information.

Book a ticket for the London Fashion Week Festival

If you’re looking to attend the London Fashion Week Festival, which also takes place from the 21 to 24 September, you will need to book your tickets in advance here. Prices start from £20 for the Bronze package and go up to £200 for a Luxe Premium ticket. You’ll be able to enjoy catwalks, shopping, talks and get to meet new brands who you can speak with and photograph.

Keep up with the live streams

In the event that you’re not able to get into any of the main shows, you might be interested to watch the live streaming. The schedule for this can all be found here. To stay in the loop on all updates, you can follow London Fashion Week on Twitter, where they will be giving out relevant information using the #LFW hash tag.

Travel to the events in style

To get to your events in style, you may want to consider booking a private chauffeur. Many of the top journalists, bloggers and brands all work with a luxury chauffeur during London Fashion Week to add to the glamour and excitement of this exclusive event. It means you can get to your shows without delay, which can be hugely important when these key moments are all running so tightly together and transport in London can end up a nightmare. There’s a huge amount of benefit to turning up early so you can beat the queues and get to your front row seat.

It also means you won’t be stressed or sweating from a frantic trip on public transport, which will be far from stylish when you’re wearing your best Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blahniks. Instead of frantically trying to wave down a last-minute cab, you’ll have a driver ready and waiting for you.

When using a chauffeur service for LFW, you’ll be able to arrive feeling your absolute best, looking super chic and also grabbing the attention of all those waiting photographers as they keep their eye out for the latest new fashion icons to pap for their blogs and magazines.

To celebrate the fashion event, Belgravia Chauffeurs offers 10% off to all bookings for LFW 2017 at The Store Studios. Simply give the code LFW10 when booking with us. Get in touch and book your private chauffeur with us today.
