Ok I know I wrote a little something about the Vogue shopping evening back in 2012, a very ‘little’ something, but as the event is in it’s 6th stylish year I thought I’d write a little more.
Back in the distant past, 2009, the Fashion’s Night Out event was born in New York, in the hopes that it would encourage consumers to help the economy by spending a little dough. The brainchild of Vogue, the C.F.D.A (Council of Fashion Designers in America) and NYC & Company, the evening was such a success that it was held in 15 cities international the following year. Now in 2014 the initiative has grown to more than 30 cities in 19 different Countries, helping to raise millions in globally retail sales and for charity.
Although no longer held in New York the FNO will continue to bring a touch of excitement to London’s West End.
On the night expect stores such as H&M, Anthropologie, J.Crew and pretty much everywhere else to offer cocktails, live music, discounts, master-classes and even the possibility of meeting a fashion icon or two, until 11pm. There’re far too many stores and promotions in this event to list, so if you want to find out what’s available have a little clicky here.
The Time: Officially the event is from 6pm – 11pm on Tuesday 23rd September 2014, however some stores may start earlier on the day.
The Places: Stores on Oxford Street, Regents Street, St Christopher’s Place, Brook Street & South Molton Street will be participating.
Tickets: No tickets needed, just show up with your lovely self and enjoy the night.
More Info: Have a looky at www.vogue.co.uk for more details, or check your fav retailers website, if they’re in the area I’m sure they’ll mention it.
What you’ll need: Flat shoes, a large bag for all your goodies and a surly model stare so you’ll fit in with all the fashionable folk…I’m kidding of course.
