Ok guys so here’s my recap of this years Vogue’s Fashion Night Out in Manchester, enjoy…
I headed down to Vogue’s Fashion Night Out with my cousin on Thursday to experience a unique evening of late night shopping, celebrity guests and fashioned themed events. Manchester truly embraced the night with many shops, restaurants, bars and galleries keeping their doors open late for the event. On walking towards the centre of Manchester to our first target of the night (H&M) there was a great atmosphere about the city, with everyone seeming to embrace the event and rocking their most fashion ensembles.
H&M was one of our favourite stops of the night, with the whole store being a hive of activity. The store inside was set up with a photo stage where you could take away a photo memento of the night (which we made sure to do), a DJ booth to get the party going and a team from Tony & Guy providing guests with free makeovers! Sounds fun right? 🙂
The only thing that stole my attention away from all of this was the jewellery section of H&M. I’ve been wanting a statement necklace that could be worn with both casual and dressier outfits for a while now and found this delicate plait necklace that fitted my checklist perfectly, making it my sole purchase of the night!
After walking out of H&M with our purchases in one hand and our goodie bags in another, ( oh I do love a good freebie) we made our way over to Selfridges. If I ever have the desire to live in a store, Selfridges on this very night would be my ideal home 😉 the store inside was literally a combination of my two favourite things, confectionery and fashion! There were stalls of popcorn, crepes and candy floss (which we made our way over to swiftly 🙂 ) and refreshments served on silver platters. A Chanel pop up manicure bar was centre stage, with a fake tanning booth, a temporary tattoo and hair braiding stall also having their place in the store. For entertainment, music was provided by Eliza Doolittle (see below) and Jameela Jamil who were both DJ-ing on the night.
After Selfridges we made our way over to Mango, Debenhams and Marks & Spencer picking up a goodie bag from the Boohoo bus on the way! Our last stop of the night was Harvey Nichols which was beautifully decorated inside! One of the quirkiest events taking place for VFNO was happening in the store, with guests having the opportunity to have their VFNO t-shirts customized by one of 10 designers including Jonathan Saunders and Sophia Webster!
Once we left Harvey Nichols the night was drawing in and as we were already shopped out we decided to head home. The journey home was filled with reminiscent memories of our very first Vogue’s Fashion Night Out and the hope to attend again one day!
