Vogue’s Fashion Night Out…
Last week, two young girls (aka. us) headed into the centre of London for the most talked about night in the fashion world. And personally, I think New York has nothing on London’s fashions night out! But everybody knows that you must work for what you want, and we were no exception.
Starting the night at Burlington Arcade, where a Burlesuqe-themed party was just about to take place (Hosted by The Last Tuesday Society – whom we have very close connections with), we set to work at helping out the acrobats, the popcorn stand and even the marching band prepare for their performances.
You may have spotted us marching being the band along Bond Street (where the paparazzi were at their peak), handing out the flyers and invitations to Burlington Arcade for the night. And to draw in even more attention, we made sure out outfits were up to scratch:
A custom made/fitted circus themed outfit to blend into the theme of the party. One to stop you on the streets!
It seems people didn’t fail to notice us either, and not to brag, but we were stopped on numerous occasions for photos for blogs, as well as a few interviews for background detail on our outfits. Not only were we stopped, but we made sure we were able to save some time to annoy other people with our camera and questions for this blog. This was exciting as it seems it was our first Street-Style piece, and what a place to start! The crowds were bustling with budding fashionistas and beautiful people showing off their outfits… here are some of our favourite:
And we’d have been idiots not to save time at the end of the night to visit the high-fashion designer shops, who blessed us with their presence, by staying open for the night and showing off their new lines as well as sparing us a few drinks to keep the conversation flowing (we especially enjoyed the bubbled ice-tea!). Some of our favourite displays were the red-headed-bobbed girls at Louis Vuitton and the crazy-headwear photo-shoot we took part in (and were lucky to be able to skip the queues) as well as the ice-cream stand outside of Missoni, what a fabulous idea!
We were lucky to be part of this very special night, as we joined many models, TV stars and big names in the fashion world, as they too enjoyed the night in their own ways. Made In Chelsea stars Hugo Taylor and Natalie Joel joined us in the arcade and we managed to grab a few snaps of the couple enjoying drinks and entertainment from above…
Thank you to all the designers, all the entertainment and of course everyone who made the night so special. We had THE best time and can not wait for next year!
