Review by Agata Mayer, Editor-in-chief

As you probably know, London Fashion Week (#LFW) is one of the ‘big four’ international catwalk influencers along with New York Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week, since the first show in 1984.
This high profile fashion event is set within Somerset House, takes place biannually and features some of the world’s leading designers.
The schedule is always packed with amazing shows, installations, showrooms and parties from the brightest names in the industry.
Today, #LFW has become a city-wide celebration, while before it was just a trade event.
This summer, Oxford Street and Regent Street, two of the busiest shopping streets in Europe, joined in #LFW Festivities by hosting educational seminars, displaying architectural installations or supporting architect practices and fashion brands together within London Design Festival.

The Hollywood Factor!

World-famous models, the hottest celebrities and Hollywood movie stars who dropped in at this event. Welcome to London Fashion Week SS 15.

Drew Barrymore, Samuel L. Jackson, Mario Testino and Alexa Chung followed Stella McCartney and the cohost Livia Firth at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. All these big names were there to celebrate Stella McCartney’s Green Carpet Collection.
Colin Firth, who no doubt went to the show to support his wife Livia, proud father sir Paul McCartney, Salma Hayek together with her husband François-Henri Pinault, Rita Ora also joined the designer to see the show.

Another day, supermodels Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne took a short break from the runway and arrived to watch the Burberry Prorsum show at Kensington Gardens, snapping ‘selfies’ and giggling on the sidelines.
The same show was closed by Suki Waterhouse, Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend. The Hollywood actor caused a huge stir when he appeared at Tom Ford‘s show the same day. Cooper sat next to Vogue US Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour on the front row.

Another beauty, the stunning blonde Georgia May Jagger (the younger daughter of Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger and model Jerry Hall) opened the Marchesa Spring/Summer 2015 show in Whitehall. The American label celebrated its ten year anniversary in London.
