Where to travel if you're a fashion lover

We round up the most coveted hang-outs for the fashion-conscious individuals of the world

LONDON

We kick off keeping it close to home in one of the most iconic fashion capitals of the world, Laandan Town. A place heralded for its innovative fashion design and ability to ignite trends which spread worldwide. From streetwear casual to suited and booted, those that walk the streets of The Big Smoke know how to do so with a healthy dose of British swagger.

With an abundance of fashion museums and exhibitions to choose from, the two at the top of our list are Victoria & Albert Museum and the Fashion and Textile Museum both of which showcase current and historical threads from pivotal moments in fashion history.

With each London-centric political movement came a hot new fashion trend to represent. With punk there was iconoclast, Vivienne Westwood, with conscious consumerism there was Katharine Hamnett, Alexander McQueen was your guy for promoting women and disabled people, and PETA recruited supermodels to discourage the use of fur. There’s a number of further designers who’ve lent their names and talents to worthy causes over the years, and chosen London as the place to do it, such as the unforgettable Chanel SS15 riot.

For catching a glimpse of some of the best-dressed Londoners and getting live-in the-flesh style inspo, we recommend hanging out on King’s Road, Shoreditch high-street, and the back streets of Oxford Circus.

Conveniently located right by King's Cross station and close to Euston station, the Pullman London St Pancras hotel is the perfect base for any kind of London stay.
