Tag Archives: Fashion’s Night Out
This year’s Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in London looks set to be the broadest yet, with activity stretching from beyond Bond Street, Regent Street and Oxford Street to Covent Garden and Westfield London. I’m going to try to see as much as I can but I’ll mostly be hosting my own little soiree at the Lacoste store in Regent Street (so you’d better come and say hi or I’ll feel like a right ninny.)

Thanks to everyone who bid on the wonderful one-off Secret Tees produced by some of the country’s best creative talent. Now I can reveal who designed what for Harvey Nichols’ Fashion’s Night Out auction, with all proceeds going to my favourite charity, Kid’s Company… Continue reading
Did anyone go to Fashion Night Out? Wasn’t it a blast? I had so many things I wanted to go to, from checking out Lulu Kennedy’s ‘Honolulu’ at Liberty, to getting my nails did by Sophy Robson at Chanel, to
falling whizzing round Rupert Sanderson’s roller disco. In the event, I mostly got waylaid in various spots around Bond Street shooting the breeze with every blogger in town…
Rupert Sanderson was hilarious fun (but not so hilarious for poor Katie Chutzpah who sustained a fractured-elbow-shaped injury). Here’s a photo she took of me doing my best Olivia-Newton-John-in-Xanadu impression.
I loved Netaporter’s idea of a shoppable ‘window’ where punters could win prizes. Here’s my photo from London:
And finally, to Harvey Nichols’ fashion fairground, a complete madhouse of London’s craftiest designers customising FNO tees, bags and anything else in sight (J W Anderson even stuck Harajuku stickers on a Celine bag and someone’s boots). My Secret Tees looked great of course and the bids are already stacking up. Feel free to bid if you fancy winning a one-off tee from one of London’s coolest creatives. All profits to Kids Company – yay!)
Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is almost upon us and I said I’d give you the final low down on my Secret Tees project with Harvey Nichols. Well ta-da… here it is! I asked Sophy Robson, Dr Noki, Bip Ling, Quentin Jones, David David, Fred Butler and Yang Du to create a one-off T-shirt to be auctioned by Harvey Nichols for FNO, with all proceeds going to Kids Company.

What am I looking forward to on Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out? Jeez, where to start? At the Vogue bloggers’ preview last Wednesday morning, I chatted to Alex Shulman and what seemed like half the Vogue staff about their magnificent plans for September 8th. Continue reading
Pinch me now! Vogue’s Fashion’s Night out is fast approaching and I’ve managed to wangle a wee project with Harvey Nichols. I’ve rallied some of my favourite fashion creatives to design/print/customise a one-off tee to be showcased at FNO on September 8th, then auctioned on EBay afterwards. I’m especially pleased as all proceeds will go to Kids Company, a charity that I have supported for a while.
The twist is that the identity of each T-shirt’s designer won’t be revealed til the auction finishes. (Although um, it might be quite easy to guess one or two…) The deadline for the finished tees to arrive is fast looming, so watch this space as I’ll be revealing all the names of the designers here…
There are also a zillion things happening in London on Fashion’s Night Out itself, which this year extends from W1 (hello Rupert Sanderson roller disco) to Knightsbridge to Covent Garden. Have you made plans yet?
Dear September 10th. Could you hurry up and arrive already please? I have allocated the entire day to fashion and Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out and have already pencilled some appointments in my Hello Kitty Smythson diary. I’m definitely making the Gap pop-up shop in Carnaby Street my first stop-off to see what visual delights Garance Dore is going to magic up with her photos, illustrations and limited edition T-shirts (above) and I’m planning to end the day at COS to take advantage of its free champagne and late closing (it’s open ’til 11pm). Then I will spend a good while at Liberty where all theseevents are taking place including an Hermes scarf-styling workshop from Vogue’s Emma Elwick (she who styles their phenomenal More Dash Than Cash pages).
Then I need to find time to watch Lucinda Chambers zhuzh up the windows of the Giorgio Armani windows in Sloane Street (6.45pm, 37-42 Sloane Street, SW1), witness Kate Phelan in action styling a Vogue shoot at Chanel on Bond Street (173, New Bond Street, 7-8pm), sample the exclusive black ice-cream from The Icecreamists at Selfridges (400 Oxford St, W1), watch Jourdan Dunn styling Topshop shoppers (8-9pm, Topshop 216 Oxford Street, W1) and help Rupert Sanderson with his giant shoe installation (33 Bruton Place, W1).
