I absolutely love Autumn. To quote the imitable Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wear’s Prada, “September is the January of fashion”. Between the various fashion weeks and the AW collections hitting shop floors, it’s such an exciting time. The cherry on top of the September fashion cupcake is, of course, Vogue Fashion’s Night Out. Now in its 6th year, the global celebration of fashion is returning to London tomorrow night promising to be bigger and better than before.
I always plan my night in advance, with so many department stores, high street brands and designers taking part across the city it’s the only way to ensure that you don’t miss the best events. If you haven’t started planning your night yet, here’s a run down of the best parties and events straight from Conde Nast towers:
Browns – Vogue Fashion Director Lucinda Chambers and designer Roksanda will be in store offering style advice while the Bursein family will be behind the tills serving customers.
Selfridges – Vogue Deputy Editor Emily Sheffield will be speaking to Erdem about his latest collection and creative vision after a screening of his SS15 collection at the Selfridges Everyman theatre.
