You should do, because the right venue can make or break an event. In order to celebrate some of the capital's most eye-catching venues, we’ve rounded up the ones that have been used in London's AW19 Fashion Week, and it's hard to deny the important role they play in proceedings.

Gayeon Lee’s collection for AW19 is all about modern femininity, with her second London Fashion Week presentation taking place at St Martin-in-the-Fields. The Crypt is outside of the usual London Fashion Week space, making it pretty unique. A classy and cosy venue that filled the underground space with jazz for the event.
