It’s all changing this year as London Fashion Week moves from its traditional spot at Somerset House to a new location at Brewer Street Car Park in Soho. We are excited to see the masses of celebrities and fashion folk flocking to streets of central London in Soho for the first time in years. And COSSAC will be there to capture the style action (read on to find out more).
If you aren’t one of the lucky few to be invited to the VIP glamour and hype of the main catwalk shows (like ourselves) there is plenty of fashion themed fun for you to join in with around London during the week starting Friday 18th September to Tuesday 22nd September. Here are COSSAC’s tips for what to do and who to watch.
Charity Fashion Live
This is an event that every aspiring stylist does not want to miss. Held in the Oxfam Store, Dalston fashion stylist Emma Slade will be recreating catwalk looks as they appear live during London Fashion Week using only charity, donated garments. This promises to be a fun and inspiring for all you thrifty and slow fashion lovers to keep your SS16 trends up to date on a budget. You can even follow the action from your phone while you are at work by following @CharityFashionLive on Instagram
Let’s face it, digital tools have become one of the key advancers for the fashion industry in the past few years. Whether it’s new fabric developments, digital realm culture swaps with bloggers and Instagram or 3D printing the digital domain has played a huge part in the fashion world. Digital disturbances is the new exhibition being held in London College Of Fashion’s Fashion Space Gallery. Here you can explore and learn more about how the material and digital world are connected.
