Across London, designers will be showcasing their SS19 collections, models and journalists will be running from show to show, and hair and makeup artists will be perfecting the catwalk looks. It can be a pretty hectic time, which is why we’ve put together a list of essentials you will need to ensure you survive Fashion Week.

Previously, we’ve watched the stylists from KMS California at the Bora Aksu show, and put together a list of handbag essentials for fashion week

How to Survive Fashion Week

Tip #1: Plan, Plan, Plan

If you’re going to be hopping from show to show, make sure you plan out your route. Figure out where the venue is and plan your tube route ahead of time. There is nothing worse than feeling rushed and flustered! You want to enjoy the shows, so just work out your plan of action and timings the night before.

Tip #2: Get ‘On-The-Go’ Everything

When you’re rushing between shows, you might struggle to find time to grab food, touch up your hair or give your makeup a refresh. On-the-go products are an absolute essential to ensure you’re looking and feeling your best whilst you’re getting your inspo on at shows.

Tip #3: Only Take The Basics

OK, we know we just recommended carrying some cordless straighteners with you, but they are only tiny and really lightweight, so they don’t count!

Don’t carry more around with you than you need. You’re probably going to want to touch up your makeup, but think about what you actually need. Taking 2-in-1 products is a great idea, like theBalm’s Hot Mama, which can be used as both an eyeshadow and a blush, and bonus points if your products include a mirror!

Tip #4: Phone & Flats…

Take a portable phone charger, and wear flat shoes. Seriously. Your phone is going to die. You’ll be using google maps, whatsapping the squad, and taking numerous videos and pictures for the ‘gram. A portable phone charger is a MUST.
