What to Expect at London Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2016

Fashionistas rejoice! Today marks the beginning of London Fashion Week 2016 (LWF 2016) and we can’t wait to see what some of the hottest designers from around the world have in store for us this time. Here, LUXE Models looks into what you can expect from autumn/winter fashion in 2016.

Seeing the shows

LWF 2016 officially begins today, Friday 19th February and runs until Tuesday 23rd February. You’ve only got a few days to enjoy this rare showcase of upcoming trends and wonderful fashions. You can’t book tickets to see these shows, as they’re typically invite-only for industry insiders, buyers and fashion press.

Catching the stream

However, this year industry body the British Fashion Council have decided to stream the shows to the public. They’ve collaborated with Ocean Outdoor – who specialise in large-format digital billboards to stream footage of the runway shows in 60 outdoor locations.

These will be posted in a range of cities in the UK, from Edinburgh to Manchester to Birmingham. You can also catch an online stream of all the latest happenings at this magical fashion occasion!

Best shows

This begs the question, when will you be able to catch live streams of shows from the most talented fashion designers? Check out the event’s schedule for a full list of shows being held at London Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2016.

We’d suggest you make time to check out the shows from JW Anderson (Saturday 4pm), House of Holland (Saturday 7pm) and Alexander McQueen (Sunday 7pm) to see what’s set to be hot in the world of fashion in late 2016.

Meanwhile, the highly anticipated Burberry show is scheduled for 1pm on Monday and you’ll want to check that out on live stream, as it’s rumoured to be a game-changer! We’ll be sharing the link on the LUXE Models Twitter so make sure you take a look early Monday afternoon to see what this celebrated fashion house has in store!

Fashion weekend

Meanwhile, if you actually want the live experience you could always check out London Fashion Weekend. Running from Thursday 25th February – Sunday 28th February, this is a showcase from four top designers. Tickets are open to anyone and they can be bought for as little as £20.

This year’s designers will be Emilia Wickstead, Mary Katrantzou, Temperley London and Holly Fulton. They’ll use the event as an opportunity to re-stage their runway shows from London Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2016. Attendees will also be given the chance to shop at more than 150 fashion brands at exclusive prices, so this event is a must for all true fashion lovers!
