19.08.2010- Fashion's Night Out

Thursday, 19 August 2010

The second Fashion's Night Out is happening here in London on the 8th September, and, according to vogue.co.uk, these are some of the events in the pipeline:

'Mulberry: It’ll be a lively night at Mulberry’s Bond Street store with SingStar karaoke, face-painting on the first floor and a live DJ busting tunes on the ground floor. Refreshments will be provided in the form of pies, Prosecco and beer for the boys.'

'Manolo Blahnik: Following an appearance at Liberty, Manolo will be at his Old Church Street store signing shoes. Try your luck at winning a pair from the autumn/winter 2010 collection.'

'Matthew Williamson: The British label will be teaming up with chic Moroccan restaurant Momo to transform the Bruton Street store into a Moroccan Souk, complete with a Gnawa music group, Moroccan-inspired drinks and canapés for guests. All guests visiting the store that evening will have the opportunity to enter a competition to win covetable front row tickets to the Williamson's London Fashion Week show in September. Matthew will also be making an appearance with a mystery star guest.'

'Liberty: The iconic British store will launch Manolo Blahnik’s World of Manolo pop-up shop selling an array of exclusive products including candles, shoehorns and chocolates. The mini boutique will also feature a bespoke bar with drinks named after his chic designs. Also, to celebrate Liberty’s new scarf room opening, the store will be hosting styling classes and mini-fashion shows showing customers how to wear their scarf. '

'Harvey Nichols: Head to Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge where designers including Erdem, Christopher Kane and Martin Grant will be on hand to customise the Fashion’s Night Out charity T-shirts and tote bags on sale in store. The first floor will create an old-fashioned haberdashery area where designers will help you jazz up your piece. Have a picture taken with your favourite designer in one of the store's photo booths. In Manchester, the store will host a variety of designer trunk shows or, alternatively, guests can eat a three-course meal while watching the hit fashion film Devil Wears Prada. The Leeds branch will hold a large-scale fashion showcasing autumn/winter’s key looks and trends.'

'Chanel: Get an express manicure in one of Chanel’s gorgeous new colours from its Les Khakis de Chanel collection; Khaki Rose, Khaki Vert and Khaki Br, created by, Chanel’s global creative director of make-up Peter Phillips, especially for Fashion's Night Out.'

'Burberry: One of fashion’s most stylish men, Christopher Bailey, will host an evening of Champagne and canapés, as well as offering shoppers the chance to win two tickets to the must-see Burberry spring/summer show. The store will also conduct an acoustic bands session showcasing the best emerging music talent.'

'Browns: The London-based boutique is launching its Shop 24 – a new concept store spanning over two floors, comprising must-have wardrobe staples from the perfect white shirt to the best worn-in biker jacket. Browns will also be marking September 8 with Back To School activities with leading authorities offering guests lessons on music, art and food. Shoppers will be offered mini shepherd’s pies, rhubarb and custard crumbles from the Tuck Shop and fizzy pop served from the Bike Shed.'

'Giorgio Armani: Vogue's editor Alexandra Shulman and Giorgio Armani will be hosting a glamorous cocktail party at the Emporio Armani store on Bond Street.'

'Alexander McQueen: The Bond Street store is holding a prize draw to win a covetable Britannia clutch bag. The British label is also launching an exclusive bracelet in five varying colourways.'

'Selfridges: Recently named the world’s best department store, Selfridges will launch Mulberry’s pop-up shop unveiled by Emma Hill. Colin McDowell will host a conversation with Peter Pilotto while Lily Allen will celebrate the opening of her sister’s vintage store, Lucy in Disguise, with a star-studded party and a pop-up boutique. '

Sounds amazing right? The mystery guest as Matthew Williamson sounds intriguing, my money's on Sienna Miller, but who knows! I'll definitely be checking out the Mulberry pop up shop in Selfridges, and heading to Liberty. Also the Browns Back To School activities (and food!) sound amazing, so will have to pop by and have a gander, if only for the sake of my inner child! One thing I'm sure of: comfy shoes are a must for this event!
