Lights. Camera. Action! It’s London Fashion Week. Twice a year, budding designers and established fashionistas get the chance to present their latest collections to important figures of the industry: global press, buyers, photographers and bloggers. And so far, this year has been an exciting one!
As they say, all good things must come to an end, so when the designers have packed up and the spot lights are turned off and the glitter settles, where do the fashion gurus of London reside? What are London’s most fashionable streets?
King’s Road, Fulham
The clue is in the name. Kings and queens of fashion choose this hot spot to shop until they drop. Originally made famous in the swinging 60s, the street is still associated with fashion royalty Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood.
As well as being home to high-end high street stores such as French Connection and Jigsaw, the King’s Road has a plethora of luxury brands and boutiques such as Orla Keily, All Saints and Jaeger. But what makes the King’s Road really special? The Charity shops. We recommend the Oxfam Boutique, just around the corner from Starbucks. Nab a second hand Pucci dress or Celine Luggage bag for a fraction of the price. And for lunch? Pop to Bluebird to rub shoulders with recognised bloggers and stylists.
For those wanting to live a stone’s throw from the King’s Road, this four bed terraced house is on the market with Fine & Country Fulham for £1,895,000 – find out more here.
Lordship Lane, East Dulwich
East Dulwich is a magnet for young (and stylish) families who are attracted by the independent shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. Lordship Lane, located north-south from Goose Green to Wood Vale, is a retail hot spot for south east Londoners and a hub for cool independent shops. Visit Give + Take, where you can exchange unwanted items for designer gear.
This five bedroom semi-detached for sale in Derwent Grove is just off Lordship Lane, perfect for any promising designers and on the market for £1,550,000. Click here for more information.
Mount Street, Mayfair
One of the most exclusive postcodes in London, W1 offers more luxury designer stores than any other. Mount Street in particular is home to Christian Louboutin, Balmain, Marc Jacobs and many, many more. And once you’ve chosen your perfect outfit, why not buy some diamonds to match? Mount Street may be the perfect place to pick out jewellery, with Linda Farrow, Stephen Webster and William Asprey all residing here.

Sloane Street is internationally recognised as one of the most luxurious fashion destinations.

After you’re tired of sifting through Hermes’s A/W collection, head over to Heston Blumenthal’s Michelin Star Restaurant.

Bermondsey was once full of warehouses and rundown buildings, but in recent years it has become a Mecca for trendy restaurants, high-end fashion boutiques and stylish nightspots such as The Hide Bar. Home to the Fashion and Textile Museum, Bermondsey Street is awash with fashionable types looking for inspiration for their new collections.
If you fancy yourself a budding Bermondsey designer, this three bedroom modern flat may be the perfect place to work on your debut collection. The property is on the market with Fine & Country Fulham for £3,450,000.

Once a disused arcade, Brixton Village is now bursting with trendy cheap eateries, fashion boutiques and independent shops. As soon as you enter, live music and food smells overload your senses. Vintage shops like Leftovers and Saloon offer everything from silk scarves and 20’s dresses, to leather bags and designer sunglasses, whilst little boutiques, like The Keep, offer contemporary apparel for women and men.
