What’s What At London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week is the most intense and the most amazing experience we live through each and every season. It’s a five-day mini-marathon of early-morning runway shows in far-flung locations and late-night after-parties with our favorite style stars. By the end, we are exhausted, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
This year, we’re making sure that every minute counts by selecting the can’t-miss catwalks, happenings, and presentations. And, it goes without saying you’ll be there with us every step of the way. Get ready to witness the best of what LFW has to offer, from Fash/On Film to The Coveteur’s store party to Sophia Webster’s fantastical presentation. And, the best bit? You can take it all in from the comfort of your couch. Put the kettle on, get cozy, and click through.

The Coveteur and Filles à Papa party
Legendary designer boutique Browns Focus is celebrating London Fashion Week with a little help from the team at The Coveteur and up-and-coming label Filles à Papa. DJ Manny Norte is spinning the tunes and Patrón Tequila will provide the liquid refreshments. We can't think of a better place to let our hair down.

Fash/On Film
Each season, the Fash/On Film event gets better and better. The British Fashion Council and River Island sponsor the project that aims to strengthen the relationship between fashion and film. This year, Sibling, Roland Mouret, British Vogue, and i-D magazine are just some of the brands giving Hollywood a run for its money. I-D previews Catching The Moment: Life Through The Lens Of Terry Jones, a documentary about the magazine's founder. And, there's an exclusive clip of the controversial Yves Saint Laurent biopic, too. Pass us the popcorn.

Sophia Webster
Sophia Webster's sweetie-shop designs have a special place in our heart. And, it's not just because we got to embrace our inner flower fairy at last year's presentation. Since September, the brand's speech-bubble clutches and pastel-hued heels have entered the style lexicon. And, we can't wait to see who will be serenading us at this season's presentation. Last year, Katy B lifted our spirits with her rendition of "Sunshine After The Rain." Is it too much to suggest that celebrity fan Rihanna offer a similar performance this year?

Fyodor Golan
Fashion Fringe winner Fyodor Golan joined forces with Nokia to create the first digital skirt. The design utilises Nokia 1520 smart technology: The model's cap captures images that are transferred to panelled screens on the skirt. Could this be Gaga's next stage outfit? All will be revealed on Friday at the runway show.

River Island Design Forum
High Street retailer River Island always impresses us with its designer collaborations, with previous collections by Eudon Choi, Rihanna, and Georgia Hardinge under its belt. We're already more than a little excited about the upcoming capsule collection with U.K. designer Katie Eary. The line was inspired by Fear and Loathing in Last Vegas, so we look forward to seeing how this translates into celluloid when the brand showcases its film at the Fash/On Film event.

WilliamVintage American Express party
William Banks-Blaney's vintage shop in Marylebone is the stuff of legend — filled to the rafters with jaw-dropping pieces by Balenciaga, Thierry Mugler, and Christian Dior. He's celebrating LFW — and his new role as the global style ambassador for American Express — with a WillamVintage dinner party, cohosted by Chanel muse Lady Amanda Harlech and their favorite fashion chums. We're expecting to see some major haute-couture threads.

Fashion East
Fashion East has been introducing us to hot new design talent for over 14 years. We're already mad fans of Ashley Williams' work, but we're certain this season's newest recruits Helen Lawrence and Louise Alsop will also delight.
