London Fashion Weekend Along with the main London Fashion Week event, the open-to-all London Fashion Weekend is returning to Somerset House this February. This fashion-focused weekend is an opportunity for everyone to get access to the latest designer trends - even if they don't have a stylist's little black book. The frenzied London Fashion Week is all about work for models, buyers and fashion editors who run around at breakneck speed. But this consumer show which takes place on the weekend after the main event offers savvy shoppers the opportunity to check out the latest fashions at a far more leisurely pace. Tickets are on a timed entry basis to make sure the crowds never get 'first-day-of-the-sales' busy. And with over 150 London Fashion Week designers offering their clothes at cheaper than retail prices you can find some real bargains. But it's not just about the latest clothes, you also get makeovers and styling tips while sipping on a champagne cocktail - very stylish.

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).
