Glitter, glamour and catwalks.
Striking, creative and ground breaking events that change the face of the fashion industry are hosted in our venues year after year.
In this year’s London Fashion Week we hosted Anya Hindmarch’s catwalk which left fashionistas not only inspired but laughing too. The event made the audience feel as if they had been to the opera as well as one of London’s most elegant events. The extravaganza took place in Old Billingsgate Market. This provided a stunning backdrop with space for hundreds of backstage staff, high class models, make up artists, the London Gay Men’s Chorus and, of course, throngs of the fash pack that flocked to see Anya’s triumph.

Beautiful fashion show venues in London
We are experts when it comes to managing fashion show events, whether you need a London Fashion Week venue, a charity event or just a team building exercise. We have fashion show venues all over London and beyond. Browse our website to get some inspiration for where you’d like your catwalk to be situated. We have also selected a few of our favourite and most versatile venues, from blank canvases to historic palaces.
Take for example, the very big catwalk we put on for women’s clothing brand Very.We chose the Royal Liver Building in Liverpool to welcome VIPs on Saturday evening for a ‘VERY VIP Event,’ just before the The Very Big Catwalk and Very Big After Party. A star-studded guest list included Christopher Biggins, Liz McClarnon, Lauren Pope, Rochelle Humes, Paul Ince, John Barnes, Angelica from CBBC, the Liverpool Lord Mayor and Lee Stafford. It was vital we had a specious as well as impressive venue as the record-breaking catwalk show included over 5,000 models, who strutted down the biggest catwalk the world has ever seen. Guests took in the sights as they sipped on cocktails on the open-air terrace.
The venue allowed us to host separate rooms which were themed with flags and furnishings including poseur tables and stools, with the Bridal Suite being used as an extra special VIP room for esteemed guests. Sofa zones were set up throughout one room for interviews to take place, with press guests making full use of the back of house areas for TV interviews.
When we were approached by Whistles we knew we had to create a new London fashion show that wowed. OXO2, our venue in London’s OXO Tower, was transformed into a fashion paradise for Whistles’ brand day. The space was perfect for introducing managers to the new collection with a catwalk. The clothing line was showcased against romantic views of London, before 180 newly inspired guests split off into groups for a series of workshops in the west side of the fashion show venue.
Waistlines are not everything
We made sure our delicious dishes were also kind to waistlines as guest were treated with carefully created lunches by the sought after chefs at Create Food & Party Design. Diners tasted pan fried fillet of sea bream, crab and avocado rillette and much more. As the sun set behind the tower, guests were able to let their hair down and share notes with champagne and canapés.
A more unusual catwalk took place when Channel 4 contacted Eventwise looking for a day of fun and team building for their Human Resources and Facilities Management staff.
The lucky guests were challenged to design couture and then put on a show stopping catwalk based on the collections of top designers. Inspiration from Barbour, Jean Paul Gaultier, Donatella Versace or Victoria Beckham. Attendees were asked to style their final show, creating production slides and music to complement the look of their chosen designer, putting their communication skills to the ultimate test. After producing some beautiful (if a bit rushed) collections teams then revealed their collections in a grand finale of glamour.
These are just a few storming successes that proudly sit in our portfolio. When it comes to picking the perfect fashion show venue in London, we believe choice is key as each client is completely unique. Therefore we have compiled a list with more options than Victoria Beckham has shoes and we reckon we could give her a run for her money when it comes to catwalks too.
