Didn’t manage to bag a ticket for London Fashion Week? No worries! From bars and restaurants to museum exhibitions, we have the lowdown on what to do in London throughout the trendiest week of the year.
What you need to know:
- Fashion Week Festival runs from Thursday 20th – Sunday 23rd September
- Key shows will be held in The Store Studios, 180 The Strand WC2R
- Shows to watch out for include: Georgia Hardinge (Catwalk Show, 23rd September); Azzedine Alaia: The Couturier (The Design Museum);
If you didn’t manage to get along to Burberry At Thomas’s in Makers House then fear not! Thomas’s cafe, based in the Burberry Regent Street store, offers a seasonal menu using the finest produce from small farmers and artisan suppliers around the UK. Swing by for a glamorous but oh-so-hearty brunch menu or push the boat out and get the whole lobster.
Situated just around the corner from Brewer Street Car Park and hidden under London’s oldest Whisky Shop, The Vault is certainly the trendiest bar to be seen in after dark. Try the Coconut Butter Old Fashioned or the Porter House Punch with Rum, Raspberries & Port.
Move away from the bustling well-dressed crowds surrounding LFW and head across the river to the Tate Modern. As someone who knows a thing or two about trends, a slither of Sir Elton John’s 8,000-strong art collection is now on show for us all to see. With some pieces hung thematically and others presented in the same way they are in his office, imagine that for a glamorous work setting!
