How prepared are you for Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out? Here at The Daily, we’re undeniably excited by the mammoth amount of amazing fashion events happening around the Capital all at the same time. From cocktails at Vivienne Westwood to customisation at Stella McCartney, tonight is set to be a thrilling event for London’s most devoted fashion lovers.
Navigating your way around this extravaganza can either be a Fashionista’s dream or nightmare – so much shopping, so little time – so, if you don’t want to miss out on any of the key happenings, it might be a good idea to put together a plan of action.
Here’s a helpful head start…..
For model sightings and catwalk strutting, head to Westfield in Hammersmith where the likes of Lizzy Jagger, Amber le Bon and supermodel extraordinaire Yasmin Le Bon will be taking to the runway for Zara and Urban Outfitters to name but a few.
It’ll be totes galore with Mulberry handing out freebies at the official opening party, as well as Orla Kiely for Uniqlo offering a posy of flowers and tote bag with every purchase of two or more items from the exclusive A/W 2012 collection.
Get your dancing shoes on for some DJ beats provided by Jameela Jamil at Longchamp and veterans of the airwaves Edith Bowman and Jo Wiley, who will be doing their best to get the fashion pack grooving at House of Fraser. There’ll also be some serious Seven Dials partying happening in Covent Garden.
If you’re happy to do a little posing yourself, Jonathan Saunders has the perfect pout outlet with a live in-store photo booth at Liberty, as well as French Connection and Lulu Guinness both running photo competitions to win a £500 shopping spree and handbag respectively.
Beauty fanatics will be going nuts over Chanel’s über chic cosmetic vending machines, available at the pop-up store in Covent Garden Market. There will also be some super fun nail art and catwalk makeovers at Topshop on Oxford Street.
And if all of that sounds like a lot of hard work, why not just rest your weary fashion legs and wind down with a designer cocktail, available at many of the participating venues. Here’s to an exciting night ahead fashion friends!
Vogue’s ‘Fashion’s Night Out’ will take place at various participating venues around the Capital from 6pm-11pm. Some events will require invite and/or ticket.
