One of the special treasures that await those planning on making a London relocation is Fashion Weekend. Held in February and September each year, this powerhouse of newly modeled fashion designs is one of the four largest fashion events in the world joining those in New York, Paris and Milan.
Not only will you be able to be a part of exciting fashion trends being revealed to the world, but you will also enjoy activities at London Fashion Weekend that you wouldn’t at the other venues. This is due to the fact that Londoners do things a bit differently and open up their shows so they can be enjoyed by attendees.
Explore Somerset House
This major cultural center located in the heart of the city is a wonder to explore anytime of the year. During the summer, the courtyard is alive with 55 beautiful fountains and in wintertime you can skate on their popular ice rink. Somerset House offers a variety of activities including family workshops, contemporary art programs, free displays, and design exhibitions. Guided tours are available.
Of course, Somerset House is also the location of London Fashion Weekend. Therefore, it would be a good idea to visit and become familiar with the grounds once you settle in from your London relocation before attending the crowded event.
Watch Top Models Glide down the Catwalk
Each spring and fall, big name models glide down the catwalk wearing beautiful designs by big name designers. During Fashion Weekend, you will be sitting in the very same seats that held the elite of the industry as they contemplated which designs to buy while watching throughout the previous week.
You can even grab a front row seat if you show up at least a half hour early. Just be sure to dig out your camera once you arrive from your London relocation so you get great photos to share with family and friends!
Purchase Designer Clothes
While attending London Fashion Weekend, you will have the select opportunity to browse through hundreds of designer brands. The exciting part is that they are all offered at a 50 percent discount to Fashion Weekend attendees.
This is an excellent chance to buy high end clothing at more affordable prices. Select from such brands as DKNY, Pringle, Levi, Nicole Richie, Topshop, Twenty8Twelve, J.W. Anderson, Cambridge Satchel Company, and more. Selections from up-and-coming designers are also on sale at deep price reductions.
Treat Yourself to a Beauty Treatment
When you get a chance to break away from the glamorous fashion shows, take time to sneak off to the west wing of the Somerset House and indulge in a pampering session. Famous hairstylist boutiques like Toni & Guy will provide you with a trendy hairdo, the ‘Brow’ bar will give you model eyebrows, and booths offering beauty products from Elizabeth Arden and others will have you drawing catwalk gazes.
Various other booths are available which offer sessions, demonstrations, and products. This would be a great activity to share with a new friend made after your London relocation!
