Get your fashion game face on


London Fashion Week is upon us, which means press and buyers of the world are gearing up to run around the city and see the best that London has to offer. And you can do it too.

Here are seven ways you can get involved in London Fashion Week...

1. London Fashion Week at Carnaby Street

LFW has been uprooted from it's former Somerset House dwellings to Soho. Brewer Street Car Park to be precise, and Soho will be bustling with the stomp of the fash pack's Manolos. Head down to Carnaby Street where huge screens have been set up to live stream LFW heroes like Peter Pilotto, Sibling and Gareth Pugh. Not to mention a host of discounts and giveaways down the famous street. 



2. Seven Dials London Fashion Week 

Right in the heart of near-by Covent Garden, Seven Dials are hosting their own mini fashion epicentre. Five minute make-overs at Caudalie, discounts at Franklin & Marshall and Sassoon Salon and special fashion week cocktails at Tredwell's. Sit back, sip and people watch away. 


3. GHD S&M Studio 

Open for five days only, the S&M studio will be offering daily styling sessions to get their hair whipped up into a fashionable frenzy. You will be able to choose from two style menus – Sleek and Movement (S&M, duh!) and have specialist hair people on hand to tell you exactly what is happening in the hair world for SS16.


Tickets cost £15 and include a complimentary beverage. 


4. Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition 

Louis Vuitton's AW15 catwalk taks to 180 The Strand for the biggest, baddest fashion exhibition in London. Set Over 13 rooms and three floors, visitors can witness every stage of Nicholas Ghesquiere's creative process – from very first inspiration to final catwalk look.
