Go behind the scenes at London Fashion Week

Friday, 16 September 2011

London Fashion Week starts today, which means models, designers, fashion industry insiders, and reporters are descending on the West End in their sky high heels and stylish attire. They are also tweeting from backstage, the front row and all the hottest parties. So if you missed out on tickets and can’t be there in person, or if you’re there and want to know what everyone’s talking about, be sure to follow the action in real-time through the #LFW hashtag on Twitter.

To make it a little easier, we’ve put together a list of people whose Tweets will help you feel so connected that you might forget you’re not actually there. Say hello to Tom Ford and Henry Holland for us if you see them!

The official London Fashion Week account, run by the British Fashion Council, is the ultimate source for #LFW info and they’ve created great fashion-focused lists as well. The team is also organising a series of Twitter Q&As, so be sure to tweet your questions to #AskLFW and follow @LondonFashionWk to hear from:

  • Laura Bailey, BFC Cultural Ambassador - Saturday at 11am
