According to our research, Twitter is 3.2 times more likely than other social networks to be up-to-date for fashion events (1). And on the eve of the first London Fashion Week shows, #LFW is already happening on Twitter.

@LondonFashionWk has been Tweeting its countdown of catwalk looks and labels, and brands have been busy building pre-event excitement. When the fashion world Tweets, you can count on stunning images and serious creativity:

The conversation on Twitter brings people closer to the action. 5​6% of UK users say that Twitter is where they can have a conversation with people in fashion – compared to 19% for the next closest social network (1). Brands can capitalise on this connection by offering behind-the-scenes access.

Among UK Twitter users who follow luxury brands, 39% go on Twitter to see which luxury products celebrities are wearing or using. And one in three intends to buy luxury fashion and accessories in the near future (2).
