London Fashion Week is what can only be described as organised chaos for anyone who operates within the fashion industry. Though a thoroughly enjoyable experience, many events are a medley of cocktails, networking, fashion shows and photography. So it was refreshing to be invited along to an early morning breakfast by Kurt Geiger to view their newest collections over coffee and pastries, while Central London was still waking up. View Post
On Saturday, we decided to have a gentle stroll around Somerset House for a few hours after being invited to a nearby event celebrating fashion startups by Shopcade. The beautiful afternoon sunshine and fantastically stylish attendees were all gathered to celebrate the ever-changing industry of British fashion and its growing influence. We’ve put together a few photos we took throughout the day and a few of the stylists we saw walking around. View Post
Every year there are a variety of high-end seasonal fashion shows conducted around Central London with exclusive guest lists and premium pricing, although glamorous and stylish they are often beyond the reach of the everyday gent who may not have the money to buy himself a seat. As a result, we’ve put together 3 menswear fashion events going on around London that almost anyone can attend and won’t break the bank when you ask for a ticket. This season, if you want to get involved in the menswear scene then here are some of the best and most accessible events in London for gents to attend.

You’re also likely to meet some of the minds behind the brands making it a perfect place to build industry relations.
