Get ready for some sartorial excess

By Gargi Agrawal  September 11th, 2020

The month of fashion is here and this year’s fashion weeks will be unlike any other. And just when we were getting over Gucci’s 12-hour-long live stream of its Epilogue collection and LV’s stunning Cruise 2020 collection, it’s time to prep ourselves for six exciting days of fashion. Yes, we’re talking about London Fashion Week 2020.

Amidst the pandemic, London Fashion Week 2020 is all set for a gender-neutral showcase that will run from September 17 to 22 this year. The shows will be held both, physically and digitally (freely accessible to everyone, industry professionals and global fashion consumers alike).

We’ve rounded up the major highlights from LFW that you should be looking forward to:

Burberry will kickstart the fashion week
