As a fashion magazine, we're always on the lookout for the Next Big Thing in the style world. And as a reader of a fashion magazine, we can safely assume that you are too. So why don't we all take a shortcut and find plenty of Next Big Things, all handily on display in one place? We speak, of course, of the London College of Fashion's MA show, which takes place at The Bargehouse on the South Bank this weekend. Previous graduates include Jimmy Choo, Sophia Webster and JW Anderson – so you can be sure that the photography, costume design, film making, fashion and journalism here is going to be the stuff you'll be following in the future. At which point you'll be able to say you saw it before everyone else. Of course.
Plates' concept is just smashing. Nope, not in the hurling crockery at the wall sense – we mean in the gorgeously presented, natural plant-based dishes sense. Setting up a permanent Shoreditch home from this Saturday onwards, chef Kirk Haworth puts his 15 years of kitchen experience at The French Laundry and Restaurant Sat Bains to excellent use, serving set menus of inventive, purely veggie dishes that put nutrition front and centre. Not that that means they're not tasty, oh no: you're in for beetroot tartare with fennel pollen and avocado, butterbean hummus and charred house breads, fragrant carrot curry, AND a glowy, healthy feeling afterwards. Result.
From 17 Feb; £40 for five courses

If ever a club night was worthy of its own exhibition, it's Glitterbox. Since it was founded in Ibiza five years ago, it's been one big sparkly shot in the arm for the club scene – becoming one of London's most in-demand parties and taking in a hell of a lot of disco balls, face paint and, yes, glitter in the process. This week it takes over Shoreditch's Jealous Gallery, filling it with never-before-seen shots by the club's resident photographer Gavin Mills, plus archive flyers, posters, graphic prints and original works by renowned artist and Blitz Kid Mark Wardel. Expect: glitz, glamour and to feel the need to go clubbing. In neon spandex.
Until 18 Feb; free
