Want An AAA Pass To London Fashion Week? Here's How...

This season London Fashion Week moves to its new central London location, Golden Square in the heart of Soho. To celebrate there are plenty of events running alongside LFW, meaning that even if you don't work in fashion you can still get involved. Here's what's happening...

 

Sit on the frow...

Always wanted to sit on the frow? Well grab a seat at the LFW outdoor cinema in Golden Square and watch livestreaming of all the LFW catwalks - think Christopher Kane, House of Holland and Burberry alongside fashion films and digital presentations from brands including Hunter and McQ Alexander McQueen. And of course it wouldn't be a cinema without snacks. Hix's iconic food van will be parked up on site serving their signature fishdogs, Lavazza will be pouring up hot coffee in limited editon Marques'Almeida designed coffeecups and of couse there will be plenty of popcorn too with Propercorn handing roving around on "tasting trikes" of their newest flavour combo - smooth peanut & almond. It's like so spring/summer 2016.
