London Fashion WeekFor the second time this year, London Fashion Week injects a burst of style into Somerset House; the iconic building with its famous courtyard is a magical setting for this high profile fashion industry event. Inviting 200 of the industry's most creative designers and businesses, in the UK and internationally, the week includes catwalk shows, exhibitions and award ceremonies. The event is wildly exclusive and entry is invite-only, however, the whole city is sure to be taken over by fashion fever and the streets could become your very own catwalk keep an eye out for top models and designers around town too.

 

About Somerset House

Somerset House, once the site of a spectacular Tudor palace, now includes a magnificent 18th century art gallery housing celebrated collections belonging to the Courtauld Institute Gallery, as well as the Embankment Galleries (which replaced the Hermitage Rooms and The Gilbert Collection - the latter re-opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in June 2009).
