Last Thursday, London was transformed for a celebration of fashion as both Bond Street and Covent Garden closed roads to the public and allowed for the masses to spend an entire evening shopping and enjoying clever events produced specifically for Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out 2012. This was certainly my best Fashion’s Night Out to date and that was all down to a few key factors this year.
First of all, I was asked to work with Coach for the night. That in itself guaranteed this would be a wonderful evening. I then found out I would be working with two women who I consider to be absolute gems in the industry and also close friends, Liberty London Girl’s Sasha Wilkins and Coco’s Tea Party’s Ella Gregory. The three of us were asked to customize Coach duffle bags from The Legacy Collection featuring the new customization kit that allows shoppers to switch out colours of their tassels and shoulder straps. Ella went crazy with studs, Sasha added a bit of bling and I threw on some foxy balls of fur to give my colour pop that extra something special. We all brought our own personal style to the table and spent the night talking to visitors about the idea of customizing their own Coach bags. I think we also managed to convince half of our party goers that life wasn’t worth living without a Coach bag swinging from your shoulder. You all know how I love a Coach bag. I tend to get a bit carried away when talking about my passion for the brand in a public arena.
Now I’m not one to toot my own horn here but there were rumours circulating with the guests that Coach had the best party going on VFNO. At one point we actually had to close the doors as we had so many people crowding in. The atmosphere was amazing. Gorgeous men serving cocktails, a sensational DJ and gorgeous products all around us. What more could a girl ask for, really?
I’d like to thank all my readers for coming out on the night. I wish I could have spent more time talking to you all but just having a moment to give you a hug and thank you for all your support made the whole night worth it for me. We had a good party… and here are some of the images of the night just so we can relive it forever, and ever, and ever…
