Taking place between the 5th and 11th of November, this year's Oxford Fashion Week promises to be the largest, liveliest and most significant to date.

The week will be showcasing many areas of fashion from young British designers to high street shop collections, the full programme can be found here.

Oxfam Fashion will be at the Ethical Fashion Fair on Thursday November 8th between 12-5pm at Oxford Town Hall. Alongside the Oxfam pop-up shop, Oxford Council's ReFashion will be holding a giant swishing event and there will be plenty more stalls for you to get your ethical fashion fix.

The guys at Oxford Fashion Week have given us two Front Row tickets to either the Cosmopolitan fashion show or the Elysium Concept Show.

The cosmopolitan show will feature ready to wear and one off garments from independent fashion brands LK Bennett and Hobbs including looks from local boutiques Marie and The Powder Room.

The Elysium Concept Show will showcase the very best in avant grade and boundary pushing fashion from the likes of Emilia Tikka, Rachel Freire, Crimson-Rose O'Shea and local work from students at Oxford Brookes University.
