Coworking: The Fashion BloggerΓÇÖs Must-Have for London Fashion Week
Forget Jimmy Choos or the latest Mary Katrantzou print ΓÇô the must-have item for fashion bloggers during London Fashion Week could well be their coworking pass.
Where to work?
Away from the buzz and bright lights of London Fashion Week shows, youΓÇÖll need to find a quiet space to write so you can bring your own slant on the SS14 trends.
But while the Vogue journos head back to their state-of-the-art offices, itΓÇÖs a different story for the girl whoΓÇÖs more used to writing from the comfort of her kitchen table. After all, hotel rooms and coffee shop tables donΓÇÖt work for everyone. So whereΓÇÖs a budding Susie Bubble to work?
Coworking ΓÇô the place to be seen
In the world of work, coworking is completely on-trend right now. And, as Chlo├⌐ Watts pointed out last week in Tech City News itΓÇÖs also gaining in popularity with the fashion pack.
The good news is, when it comes to finding coworking space, London has one of the best selections in the world. YouΓÇÖll find it dotted across the capital, from Islington to Southwark, Soho to Shoreditch. That also means thereΓÇÖll be something to suit your style, whether your sceneΓÇÖs more city sleek or geek chic.
In fact, Google launched its own coworking space ΓÇô Campus London ΓÇô a few years back, which offers deskspace to budding tech startups.
And campus is the key here ΓÇô a lot of coworking space is designed to resemble university and college workspace. In other words, the kind of space which offers a bit of background buzz but hushed enough that you can get your head down and your blog written ΓÇô so you can share the latest trends before anyone else.
From lounge space to deskspace ΓÇô work your way
Fancy giving coworking a try for yourself? ItΓÇÖs all about providing plug-and-play workspace thatΓÇÖs ready when you are.
All you need to do is buy a pass and grab a seat. Your pass will give you access to Wi-Fi for your laptop or tablet, while some coworking centres also give you access to a phone line.
Most come equipped with a kitchen area and a steady supply of tea and coffee too.
Best of all, coworking space comes in a variety of styles ΓÇô from casual business lounges to more formal deskspace, so you should find something that suits the way you want to work.
Workspace on your terms
The other reason people love coworking? ItΓÇÖs all about the flexibility.
YouΓÇÖll find a whole range of options available depending on where you want to work. They can include everything from desk rental by the hour to a package that gives you access to space in two, three, or even three dozen London locations.
If youΓÇÖre planning to do the rounds of all the major Fashion Weeks, you might want to bag yourself a pass which gives you access to coworking space anywhere in the world ΓÇô including Paris, New York and Milan.
Definitely a handbag essential. Now which handbagΓÇª?
Are you a blogger? How do you find a quiet space to work when youΓÇÖre out and about?
