From parties to exhibitions to learning and professional development, there's never a shortage of London fashion events. Read more >
If you love fashion then you're in the right place. London has one of the most active fashion events calendars in the world, and you'll find London fashion events ranging from parties and awards, through to world-class fashion exhibitions, through to events aimed at inspiring and educating you or helping you develop a career in the fashion industry.
Chicmi generally list five types of events. Firstly are free events, which are publicly accessible for free - you don't need to book, and you can just walk in. Then there's events that are booking required - and are still accessible to the public, but you will need to either RSVP by email or book your space by getting a free ticket in advance. Thirdly are paid events, which you may need to buy tickets for in advance, or where you can sometimes buy tickets at the door - check the listing for the details. The fourth event type is the invite only event - where you need to have been specifically invited. Sometimes with these events you can reach out to the organiser or press team and request an invite, but you will usually need to meet some predefined criteria that the organiser is looking for. Finally is trade only events, which are aimed at professionals. As long as you are a fashion professional you can usually gain access to the event, although you may need to pay, and you may need to prove your credentials somehow.
We don't list press-only events such as press launches, and we generally avoid events that are only open to students of a particular institution.
Each London fashion event shows the type of event it is and explains how you can get involved - so check out the individual listings for specific instructions.
There's an active London fashion events scene all year round, so keep an eye on the listings to make sure you don't miss anything! However you'll especially find a lot happening around the London Fashion Weeks, and also around the launch of major exhibitions, for example at the V&A. The museums will often put on a series of talks, curators tours and evening events to coincide with the exhibition, which are wonderful opportunities to be inspired and learn new things about the fashion industry.
