Manchester fashionistas will get the chance to indulge their love for all things stylish at Vogue Fashion’s Night Out which will land in the city next week.
For the first time ever Vogue fashion journalists will take a Manolo-clad step out of the city and bring the celebration north next Thursday.
Some famous faces making an appearance include Manchester-born designer Matthew Williamson, broadcaster/DJ Jameela Jamil and celebrity chef Aldo Zilli.
But it’s not just established high street retailers and designers who will get the chance to shine at the event.
Manchester Art Gallery is hosting its own special evening celebrating vintage fashion and style.
A pop-up vintage fair featuring many of Manchester’s premier traders including Mint Vintage, Vintage Belle and Tea with Audrey will take place alongside a talk hosted by curators from Manchester’s Gallery of Costume.
For those wanted to recreate iconic fashion moments there will be the opportunity to indulge in a vintage makeover and feature in your own retro-themed photographs.
Love: Fashion Manchester is an event curated by creative marketing agency Purple Riot which will showcase independent fashion designers and vintage clothing labels in Exchange Square.
Purple Riot Managing Director Nikki Kitchen said: “Love Fashion: Manchester is designed to provide individual fashion labels, designers, and performers the chance to align themselves with the biggest name in the industry.
“Manchester has long been recognised for its fashion forward thinking and Love Fashion: Manchester is designed to ensure the city remains on the map as a hub of emerging talent.”
But it’s not just Manchester businesses who will be getting in on the act, Notting Hill-based vintage emporium The Gathering Goddess is one label bringing along their eclectic range of outfits and accessories up to Manchester.
The Gathering Goddess founder Wilma Mae Basta said: “Being part of Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is a real honour and considering we are the only vintage brand at the event, we are very excited to see what Manchester thinks of us and our collection.”
