Catwalk screenings at the Mayfair Hotel, Mayfair

Instead of being stuck behind some tall model at the runway shows, or worrying about a rude fashionista stealing your seat, watch live catwalk screenings in the classy surrounds of The May Fair Hotel. The official LFW hotel will broadcast the shows in its Quince Restaurant & Bar, where you can eat pink candyfloss with your cocktails. On Sunday, February 19, they will launch a clubnight hosted by DJ and singer-songwriter Sunday Girl (aka Jade Williams), which is set to be one hell of a stylish party. Who says you need tickets to appreciate couture?
Live screenings take place throughout LFW

Swap In The City UK, Bloomsbury

Skint fashion lovers: unite for a swish (aka clothes swap). As part of the oh-so-ethical Good Fashion Show, this is one decent clothes-swapping event, where you’ll not only be helping the environment by recycling old clothes, but also save some cash by trading in your unwanted items for someone else’s. The rules are: bring 5-10 quality vintage or designer items (clothes, shoes, handbags or coats), then take the same number of pieces home. It’s basically a new outfit for £6. For your entry fee, you’ll also get a goodie bag. Treatments including mini-manicures and massages will also be available at the swishing event.
Sat, Feb 18. 3pm-6pm
London House, Mecklenburgh Square, WC1N 2AB
£6
Tube: Russell Square

New Fashion: Interventions in Materials and Techniques, Marylebone

Why sit around watching established designers’ clothes trotting down the catwalk when you can be one of the first to see the ‘next big thing’? This exhibition showcases bright, young talent in the design, illustration and photographic realms of fashion. New and exciting designers such as knitwear specialist Derek Lawlor, and Fashion Fringe award- winners Fyodor Golan, Vogue’s ‘one to watch’, Una Buke, and Felicity Brown, who cut her teeth at Mulberry and Lanvin, will show their experimental, but wearable, pieces.
February 16–April 7. Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-4pm.
