London Fashion Week is fast approaching and is one of the most exciting times of the year in the fashion calendar. Fashion journalists, buyers, press and bloggers are in their element trying to breathe in as much fashion as they possibly can. London Fashion Week AW16 starts on the 19th February until the 23rd this year. Running back and forth from show to show can be extremely exhausting. Check out our survival guide below to ease the Fashion Week troubles.
Prepare your business cards and ensure you have a batch in your bag. Even bloggers will need some business cards as it'll make it easier for people to contact you. From my own experience I can say that I gained many contacts during London events.
If you have your outfits planned you'll have more time to party in the evening! When you maintain your unique style, people always see yourself as a confident and content person and keep a spare pair of flats with you handy as walking on the cobbles in heels isn't always best.
Pick up you press pass early as all the best things at London Fashion Week are usually on a first come first serve basis. Apart from allowing you access to cool facilities, you might be lucky enough to grab some promotional goodies.
These items are key in the fashion world. Instagramming and Tweeting live is key for most bloggers and press so always have your phone at the ready as you never know which Celebrity you might bump in to. Also don't forget your chargers as you will need your phone for the after parties too!
You will need to keep your energy up with all those early starts and super late finishes at London Fashion Week. You may get a few free nibbles throughout your day but it won't last you all day.
