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).
