London Fashion Week has flown by us but the months of planning and dedication have set up the rest of September to be the IT month of the year. On the 23rd of September Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out is going to be running up a storm. So make sure you head over to the many events celebrating the fashion world.
Grab a free map of events in the September 19 issue of ES Magazine, which will help you decide where to go to on two of the most popular streets in London. Oxford and Regent Street will be buzzing… And here’s a few highlights we’re excited about:
Last year at Topshop there were non-stop makeovers, free shoes and a live set from Delilah. This year you can find more of the same; there will be a special guest DJ spinning the best tracks for you to shop around to, Vogue’s own Kate Phelan will also be sharing her picks of the season. You can even try and win a complimentary beauty fix- remember to share your shopping adventure with #TOPSHOPFNO to win a dream shopping experience.
House Of Holland
Henry Holland will be launching his first Liberty collection in store. While that’s going on you can dance along to Richard Sloan’s DJ skills. The denim room is going to be taken over by Etre Cécile and Yasmin Sewell on hand to style lucky customers. In the beauty hall you’ll be able to find colourist Josh Wood creating amazing catwalk looks in the beauty hall.
The latest designer on everyone’s lips is giving away the chance to win a ponyskin tote worth £395. Michael Kors will not only be giving away this beautiful gift but there will also be DJs and cocktails to dance the night away. You could be leaving Fashion’s Night Out with a pretty tote and having sipped your way through several delicious cocktails.
Ted Baker on Regent Street will be full of fun where they’ll be hosting a waffle cart and 360 degrees photobooth that you can play with. Go along and get snapped in all of your stylish glory for the chance to win a £500 shopping spree and a competition to win a night out. We’re crossing our fingers on the shopping spree- just imagine, endless Ted Baker bags and playsuits.
Polo Ralph Lauren
Vogue editors and London’s best bloggers will be out and about unearthing the best street styles walking past House Of Fraser. Those passers-by they love the style of will be rewarded with exclusive POLO Ralph Lauren beanies. Don’t miss the chance to get snapped as the very best in style and glamour. Make sure you log in your fashion win with a selfie and #POLO #FNO.

Other goodies in store will be in the form of plenty of drinks, popcorn and bags full of the best gifts all waiting for you while you browse and purchase your up-to-date jewellery collection.
There will be a personalisation pop-up at River Island where the key is to create your own. The personalisation sessions will set your pieces out from the rest, while styling tips and a custom cocktail bar make this night one to remember. Hang around as Models 1 will be looking out for the new faces of fashion- you could easily get scouted, so bring your best flair.
