What.A.Night! When I heard about Fashion Night Out, a global initiative by Vogue, I knew it would be an awesome night. As the list of London participants grew, so did my anticipation and it didn’t disappoint. As I stepped off the tube at Bond St, I could feel the buzz in the air and couldn’t help but covet well, pretty much everything people were wearing! I met up with my friends and headed to Selfridges for a make over by Dior, which was gorgeous.
I had to fight my way into Browns, there was a big crowd and an even bigger cloud of smoke outside. It was more than worth it though, I was served by none other than Marios Schwab!! He was doing his stint at the till. I was so in awe I could barely speak, but I did manage to get two signed tshirts!! Antonio Berardi was deep in conversation most of the time I was in the store, and Roksanda Illincic was giggling away with Jonathon Saunders. It was very surreal!
DSM was a bit dead by the time we got there, but my friend, who has just started her fashion design course, met one of her idols – Hussein Chalayan. I was pretty gobsmacked to have been in the same breathing space, but she could barely talk. Definite high point of the evening! I also stopped by the Anya Hindmarch store to have a which photoshoot with a bag, it was awesome it was a real mini studio and the photographer was hilarious! I’ll scan my picture soon 🙂 I also stopped off for some ultra cheesy snaps by a FNO sign…
All in all, it was such a fantastic evening, I was shattered and my feet were killin me but it was more than worth it. The girls and I discussed the night’s shenanigans on the train home and we all felt so fortunate to be there and be part of history. It’s the first time a global fashion event like this has been held, and I really hope it’s not the last.
PS – Totally gorgeous leather thigh high boots at Topshop! Shoe heaven. £275 price tag = shoe hell 🙁
