It’s London Fashion Week! Fashionistas from across the world will be travelling to the United Kingdom’s capital to watch haute couture fashion shows, check out designer showrooms and flaunt their own individual style amidst the flashing of paparazzi cameras. So, if you’re planning on heading to London for the event here are a few travel essentials that will ensure you have the best time possible. You can bear these tips in mind for future fashion travel too!
Same as any other trip, you need to ensure that you take your identification and travel documents. So, make sure that your passport is well up to date, and you have your tickets and boarding passes are snugly tucked away in your bag. You should also invest in good travel insurance, such as that supplied by GoBear.com. Not only do you need to protect yourself, but chances are you’re taking some of your nicest belongings and you want to ensure that they’re covered should they become lost, damaged or stolen!
London Fashion Week runs from the 21st to the 24th September 2017. So, you need to ensure that you have at least four days’ worth of your best outfits cleaned, perfectly folded and ready to wear. It may be a little intimidating, as you are going to be throwing yourself head first into the fashion world alongside members of the fashion elite. But don’t worry. Wear what you’re comfortable in and remember that confidence is key. Vogue have a key guide to London Fashion Week outfit ideas, with examples ranging from standout sunglasses to personalised pieces and brilliant berets. Try to pack a few extra items or outfits, just in case the weather takes you by surprise, or you manage to spill a drink or food on your preferred outfit of choice.
Not only are you going to want to snap runway pictures and photographs of the designer collections, but there will be so much more to see too! The venues are renowned for being beautifully decorated, you may see other members of the public in astounding outfits that you want to remember to replicate yourself, and who knows… you may even stumble across a celebrity or model who you want a quick snap with. Smartphone cameras are increasingly brilliant, but if you have a DSLR and different lenses, you will be able to get more professional looking shots. Remember to protect your camera. Don’t forget to take along protection for your camera. Whether that’s a drop proof smartphone case or an effective protective camera bag.
There are multiple events taking place over the course of the fashion week. The likes of Burberry, Charlotte Olympia, and Tommy Hilfiger will be making a special show of themselves. So take a look at the official guide and make sure you plan out exactly what you want to see. This will ensure that you don’t miss out on anything!
So, there you have it. Follow these simple steps, and you should have the perfect fashion week that you’ve always dreamed of!
