What's on in London this September - The Lavender Hill Clothing Guide
Posted on 01 September 2015
With the end of the summer fast approaching and the bank holiday weekend already in the past, we are feeling a bit a gloomy at Lavender Hill Clothing so we thought we would compile a list of things to do this month to make sure we see out the summer in style!
1. Open House Weekend: Sat 19th - 20th Sept.
This event gives Londoners the chance to explore behind the closed doors of some of the capital's biggest, most renowned and most secret venues for free. This is your chance to explore a bit of hidden London and have a poke around some of cities best buildings.
2. Totally Thames: Tue 1st - Wed 30th Sept.
Forget about the usual boat trips in London, start looking up the best riverside pubs and bars, and dive into this month-long party along the River Thames full of arts festivals, community events, regattas, river races, foreshore archaeology and environmental activities.
Take a look at Time Out for the full selection of events going on.
3. Maggies Culture Crawl:
A night-time walk with a difference offers participants pit stops at such iconic buildings as Chelsea Physic Garden, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Foster + Partners Studio. The theme for 2015 is 'People and Places', and highlights of the evening will include a first look at the Royal Academy of Arts's new Ai Weiwei sculpture before it opens to the public. The 15-mile route features different forms of live art and culture to offer participants an entertaining chance to raise money for Maggie’s, a charity which supports those with cancer and their family and friends. Registration costs £40 atwww.maggiescentres.org/culturecrawl, where you'll also find more information about the installations and treats along the way that make the nocturnal fundraiser extra special. Participants are asked to raise a minimum of £200 in sponsorship.
4. The Greenwich Village Vintage Fair: 5-6th Sept.
Stock up on beautiful items that are a blast from the past at this weekend-long market selling clothes, collectables, homewares and records.
5. London Fashion Week: 18th - 22nd Sept.
After six years at the mighty Somerset House, London Fashion Week 2015 is moving to Brewer street car park in Soho. Bye bye cobbles, hello multistorey concrete floors.
Organised by the British Fashion Council, it takes place twice a year and gives top international talent a chance to present their collections to global press, industry buyers, bloggers, photographers and chancers.
