The event of the season, London Fashion Week, is here and Heathrow Airport is gridlocked
with fashions elite. With New York Fashion Week in their wake, celebrities, fashion editors,
bloggers and digital influencers alike are marching into London
one pair of Jimmy Choo’s at a time.
London, its just got that live now die later attitude. With a seemingly infinite list of things to do and see, after a weekend in London you’ll need a week in the Bahamas to recover. So let’s get started, we’ve put together a list of things for you to squeeze into your schedule, perhaps between Burberry and Christopher Kane?
It just so happens that Totally Thames, a festival that celebrates the history and culture of London’s River Thames with artworks and events staged along the river’s banks, coincides with London Fashion Week. Make sure you sneak a peak of “Floating Dreams” by artist Ik-Joong Kang. The colossal, illuminated box appears to float ethereally on the Thames while sporting hundreds of drawings completed by Koreans who fled south after the country divided.
If London Fashion Week’s got your inner shopaholic all rowed up, then start your Sunday at the Brick Lane Markets: you’ll find anything from cheap leather goods to stunning silk silhouettes. Be sure to grab breakfast on-the-go from one of the many Jewish bagel shops. If you’re looking for more of a fine dining experience, make a reservation at Dishoom. Inspired by Bombay café culture, Dishoom is an Indian restaurant that will have your taste buds wishing they were sipping mango lassies in Mumbai.
Why not finish off London Fashion Week with a Parlour Cocktail from one of the most instagrammeable restaurants in London, Sketch. Famous for its candy pink dining parlour adorned in artwork by British Artist David Shrigley, Sketch will transport you into a strange and magical adult wonderland.
