Thousands of shoppers gathered last night on Regent street to celebrate Vogue's seventh Fashion Night Out. Regent street is one of the oldest shopping streets in England, home to both new and iconic brands.
At 6pm sharp we picked up our illustrated Fashion Night Out Map, got our bearings and planned a most efficient route for fashion food and fun. Loads of retailers participated with awesome discounts, workshops with Vogue retailers, delicious cocktails and goodie bags.
Max Factor did a makeup competition and I am proud to say I am a lucky lady to be in the top 5! I got red lippy done and quickly snapped a selfie to upload on Twitter using the #MyMaxFactor tag. This means our photos will be broadcasted on the billboards in Piccadilly Circus, we win a year's subscription to Vogue and get the new makeup collection from Max Factor!!
After getting our makeup done, we went into Diesel where they were making stunning flower crowns! Pink, yellow, white roses, electric blue hydrangeas turning every fashionista into a midsommar princess. GAP had a hilarious GIF photobooth and I got to talking to these lovely Spanish girls-I mean look at how much fun they are having! Oh and they were making cheese toasties too :)
Liberty however was on another level. Prosecco and canapés left right and center and even bumped into Vogue Beauty Director Nicola Moulton and Contributing Editor Calgary Avasino! Everyone that tweeted #VogueLovesLiberty received an orchid wrist corsage at the Wild at Heart flower entrance (the amount of Instas taken here was insane!).
I was excited to try the POPS alcoholic ice popsicles as the pub around the corner from where I live sells them for £5! To be honest with you, its very watered down and doesn't taste like much so I would save your money for a proper drink!
What do you think of these flash tattoos? I got them done by Seekers of the Sun who I have seen in several magazines like Vogue, Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Company. They only started their company in 2014 and are doing insanely well.
One of my favorite stands was by Nike who created a DIY tie die laces stand. Lizzie King was there offering advice and you can imagine how much the hipsters loved this. They even had a Nike DJ where Eliza Doolittle was due to perform in the evening!
Forwards and on wards to H&M Studio! The coolest stand in Vogue's Fashion Night Out in my opinion. They had a fashion illustrator! How cool is that?! I was dying to get one done but the line was sooo ridiculously long :(
On my way to the Piccadilly Circus tube, I was stopped on the street by these three handsome hunks. Jo Malone is opening a store on Regent's Street in November and was definitely making a memorable impression!
