Sure, London Fashion Week is all about the designers, the clothes and making big statements, but have you ever thought about the locations where the fashion shows take place? 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.
The May Fair Hotel
The May Fair hotel has spent 11 years as the official hotel of London Fashion Week. This year, it has teamed up with fashion designer OSMAN to create a unique window display which combines art and fashion.
My Beautiful City
Creative agency My Beautiful City has invested in a new show space for designers to present their collections during the AW19 London Fashion Week. They produced a catwalk show for Shrimps, a fashion label by London-based designer, Hannah Weiland.

This Islington-based dance theatre has hosted fashion designer Hussein Chalayan. The designer is celebrating his 25 years in the industry with the Pre-tension Womenswear collection. The venue has hosted Chalayan before, showcasing works such as his particularly famous ‘Gravity Fatigue’.
National Portrait Gallery
Erdem have put on a show at the National Portrait gallery this year. The long opulent corridors here make for excellent runways, while the artwork really adds to the atmosphere and drama of the fashion spectacle.
The Crypt at St Martin-in-the-Fields
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.
