The Chicmi Team Say

Rise and shine, London fashionistas! There are a few fashion events in London that will definitely catch your eye. Be it contemporary wear for women, wedding attire, or displays and onsite talks to broaden your horizon, this city is full of exciting events to visit this week.

If you still haven’t seen one of the best London fashion events - Beguiling Beni: Safflower Red in Japanese Fashion - you’re missing out. Just read what @Aida84 has to say about it! “This is a free exhibition at Japan Gallery. It is about Beni - red natural paint made from safflower,” she wrote. “Beni is introduced to Japan by China at 5th century via the Silk Road and used by elite people mostly at that times. It is a small but informative exhibition.” Open until March 31st, 2024, it’s on the list of prominent fashion events in London waiting for your arrival.

V&A Africa Fashion had a chance to attract hundreds of visitors already. Yet, on January 27th, from 18:30 to 19:30, British sculptor Hew Locke will take fashion events in London to the next level. Famous for exploring the economies and language of colonial and postcolonial power, he will talk more about curating the exhibition with Dr. Christine Chesinska and Janis Jeffries. Booking is required.
To finish the week on a good note, Sunday, January 29th, serves as an opening day for Scoop, another great contender among other London fashion events. Scoop London, known for the best collections of contemporary wear for women, will present new attire in Saatchi Gallery. This event will close its doors on January 31st.

London Fashion Events

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.
