What We Got Up To At Fashion’s Night OutPosted by Styloko
Well, that was a blast, wasn’t it? For those of you who didn’t make it down to the world’s biggest shopping event last night, you missed out on what was possibly (probably, almost definitely) the best Fashion’s Night Out yet. From flick-book making at Mulberry to Korean-themed fun at Opening Ceremony, here’s a rundown of everything we got up to.
First stop? Mulberry, of course. As co-hosts of this year’s official FNO launch party with Vogue‘s Alexandra Shulman, it was only right we started off the evening’s proceedings with the biggest, best party in town.
We headed along as a guest of Vodafone, official FNO sponsor, to mingle with the beautiful people – everyone from Laura Bailey in a clashing shirt-n-skirt combo to Emma Hill’s designer buddies Christopher Kane, Erdem, Matthew Williamson and Osman – sup suitably delicious apple and elderflower cocktails, and squeeze in a little boogie by the Bayswater-shaped balloons. And, oh yeah, make a miniature Mulberry flick book, which involved wearing gold monster masks and dancing like a loon for seven seconds with our pal Poppy Dinsey. We’ll be honest, it’s probably our fave novelty take-home of the night (photobooths are so last season). And yes, we’re still flicking through it this morning.
On the guest list: Alexandra Shulman, Emma Hill, Laura Bailey, Daisy Lowe, Bip Ling, Edie Campbell, and the Vaccines.
Who we actually saw: All of the above – minus Daisy Lowe – plus Pixie Geldof, Matthew Williamson, Christopher Kane, Erdem, Osman, Sir Phillip Green, Harold Tilman, and Made in Chelsea’s Amber Atherton and Caggie (who arrived separately, FYI).
Cocktails and canapes: Mini crab bellinis, washed down with apple and elderflower vodka cocktails and prosecco.
We left Mulberry (alongside an arm-in-arm Erdem and Christopher Kane – aw!) to meet Mary Katrantzou, who was signing tote bags in Vodafone’s recharge booth. A quick pit stop, we had a brief chat to the super lovely designer, who signed our tote bag with “all her love”. Shucks, thanks Mary. But that’s all the time we had, sadly, since the queue was taking over most of Bond Street and, frankly, we had other places to be.
What: Mary Katrantzou
On the guest list: Mary Katrantzou (duh)
Who we actually saw: Mary Katrantzou and a whole bunch of eager fans.
Cocktails and canapes: N/A (but there were manicures).
Next up? Jimmy Choo, to cheer on our blogger pals who were co-hosting the store’s event. Another brief stop, but sweet nonetheless. We whizzed past the pretty shoes to check in with Briony from A Girl A Style and say a quick hello to Jimmy Choo’s gorgeous PR girls, before promptly swinging round and smashing a glass. We blame Mary – all that love she gave us made our bag too big. Still, it was an empty, so silver linings and all.

Cocktails and canapes: Unsure, but whatever the cocktails were, they came in teeny tiny glasses.
And finally, a quick taxi ride to Opening Ceremony to join the boys’ team, who were already enjoying the Korean-themed street party. We drank Korean beer, tried on Kenzo’s uber cool caps, died over the amazing pieces lining the store, and danced to Bubble Pop (we’re new to this, but one Styloko Man seemed to know every word) ’til the lights came on.
What: Opening Ceremony
On the guest list: Everyone at King Street
Who we actually saw: Mostly guys dressed as girls with crazy coloured hair
Cocktails and Canapes: Korean beer, vodka and lime with pomegranate seeds. We didn’t try the food.
