7 London Fashion Week Things To Expect, From Tea Instagrams To Rain Gear

NYFW has come and gone, and now it’s time to direct our attention to the next fashion week taking place across the pond. This week is sure to be packed full of eccentric fashion because that’s just what to expect out of London Fashion Week, now isn’t it?

Besides showcasing even more clothing that we just can’t get enough of, there’s a whole different crowd of people who will be sitting on the front row that you will need to become acquainted with (at least through Instagram) to fully enjoy the action from the various runway shows. There’s also an entirely different cityscape that will be used as the backdrop for street style photos, selfies and more to look forward to. So, if you were tired of the crowded NY sidewalk scenes, prepare yourself for shots of roundabouts, Kensington Palace and the like.

There’s a lot more fashion left in fashion month, and I’m sure London will have its fair share of impressive, exciting moments. Here’s just a few things that can be expected out of the coming week, so stay tuned for this and much more! Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for any Kate Middleton sightings. That’s one thing London’s got that NY doesn’t — fashionable royals.

Susie Bubble, a London-based fashion blogger told NY Magazine, "It's a cliche, but New York is a lot more commercial. It's a lot safer. Their lines are there to sell. At London Fashion Week, everyone has their own signature style and they don't really conform to the trends."

6. Different "It" Crowd

With the forecast calling for at least two days of rain in the week ahead, there's bound to be plenty of fashionable, yet quite practical rain gear spotted at LFW.

Meanwhile.. I'll just be here trying to keep up with the week along with the Brits.
