Forget London Fashion Week, bring on Oxford Fashion Week...

Oh yes. Proud Oxford born, I welcome Oxford Fashion Week. Kicking off today 28 Feb - 6 Mar with designers featuring Matthew Williamson, Elie Saab and emerging labels Ahyoung Choi and Ara Jo.

Speaking of the event, founder Carl Aglim says, “Oxford is a fantastic city and it is madness that there was no major fashion festival before we created Oxford Fashion Week in 2009.”

Oxford Fashion Week is more than just a line-up of catwalks, with a Fashionable Night Out kicking it all off tonight where numerous stores will be celebrating with champagne, discounts, goodie bags, delicious cupcakes and more. Get yourself down town! 

Over the week you will be able to attend various ongoings including a Fashion Industry Networking evening, an Ethical Show, as well as a Couture Show taking place Saturday 5, while the Oxford Style Show and Macmillan Clothes Extravaganza will follow suit two weeks later on 19 March - the largest scale event on the calendar. 

Many events are free but tickets are required to shows available online.

Here’s the full schedule for those interested -
