Even Cleopatra had a penchant for new fashion although there were no fashion weekends during those times. Times have changed and now fashion has assumed a completely new garb with the young and beautiful spending a lot of time, energy and money in trying to look more fashionable and trendy. Fashion weekends throughout the world are becoming very popular but London Fashion Weekends are a class apart as they take place every year at the Somerset House grounds where most events are reserved for the industry professionals and celebrities but it is usually thrown open for the public from February 20-23 for a four-day extravaganza of fashion and designer shopping.
London Fashion Weekend 2014 is set to showcase the creations of many designers including Nicole Farhi, Julien Macdonald and London favourites Amanda Wakely and Maria Grachvogel. The event will feature the 40-minute Trend Shows presented by TheOutnet.com with each show presenting a mix of the best creations of domestic and international designers. 80 UK brands will showcase a pop-up shop extravaganza offering a unique shopping experience. Throughout the four day event, a series of fashion insider talks will also take place with fashion luminaries such as Lulu Guiness, Fifi Chachnil and Grace Woodward forming the line-up.
The tickets for the London Fashion Weekend 2014 are available in 3 grades that are Bronze (£20), Silver (£37), Gold (£50) and Luxe (£130). Each package provides a different mix of catwalk shows, trend shows and designer goodies.
If you are a fashion lover you can find a lot to see and do outside the main event at Somerset House.
