This is the world's most diverse fashion city, and the London fashion events scene is equally vibrant.
Whether you're looking for luxury, a bargain, or to be inspired, there's always something happening in the London fashion events calendar. Bargain hunters may like to check out London's always-on sample sale scene, which peaks in Spring and Autumn, but which is active all year round. You'll find amazing sample sales from luxury brands, alongside collective or individual sales from independent and emerging designers - which are an amazing way to discover trends before they hit the high street. Alternatively you could head to one of London's many vintage sales or kilo sales, which are the perfect place to snap up large amounts of clothes very cheaply.
Those looking for luxury should keep an eye on London's social fashion events and parties, which range from the hip to the stylish, and can spring up at any time. Alternatively check out the many luxury shopping events happening at department stores like Harrods, Liberty or Selfridges, where you'll often have the opportunity to see new collections first, or to hang out with the fashion designers themselves. These most commonly happen around new seasons in the London fashion calendar, in Spring and Autumn.
For people looking for inspiration, London's fashion events scene is never short of beautiful fashion-related exhibitions, talks or lectures. Venues like the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Fashion & Textiles Museum or London College of Fashion's Fashion Space Gallery always have a full diary of fascinating fashion displays and designer retrospectives, and frequently have a fascinating programme of talks and events to run alongside the shows themselves.
Of course, running alongside all of this, the London fashion events calendar is packed with events suitable for fashion professionals and trade. Look out for London's top fashion tradeshows, but also panels and discussions to help you build the most out of a career in fashion.
