#34 Vogue's Fashion Night Out

So last Thursday evening I attended the launch of vogues fashion Night Out – a global retail event that saw the collaboration between the international editions of VOGUE and Designers, Department Stores, High Street and Beauty Stores. An evening extravaganza held from 6 to 11pm it included a whole range of activities from in-store events, inventive window displays, makeovers, workshops, live music performances to model and celebrity appearances.

Armed with my list of stores to attend (mainly high street – which unfortunately didn’t match up with my expectations of what would be happening) I found there was a definite buzz of excitement in the air and more crowds than ever on the busy streets of London. People seemed to turn out in droves and all were very determined to have fun. From the girls and school boy plus back pack (don’t ask why he was out so late) and people on the street dancing outside Debenhams (I will post a video on this soon) to the crowds gathered in Selfridges for the Icecreamists lounge. Incidentally the queues were so long I eventually had to leave – but plan to go back and try out one of their amazing sounding boutique ice creams. Check out their website on http://www.theicccreamists.com/ and if you do want to go along don’t dally as they are only there till 1st November.

My absolute highlight of the evening has to be getting my Elemis goody bag filled with a couple of goodies I had been planning to get and meeting the lovely VVBrown at the Gap 1969 concept store on Kingly Street. She performed a few songs which were fantastic and in real life is even more stunning that you think and she was just so nice to everyone around her, happy to speak to and take pictures galore. Even though I didn’t manage to make it to all the stores on my list especially the designer stores where even more was meant to be happening - all in all it was a fab night – and with the news on the Vogue site about the success in retail sales – who knows it might just become an annual event.
