It’s only 2 weeks until Vogue Fashion’s Night Out comes to Manchester, and it’s starting to sound uh-mazing! There is an interactive map now on the Vogue website showing all of the stores and venues that are getting involved, plus a bit of information about what they’re doing, and seriously, there is so much happening on the night! There’ll be DJs, music and free drinks for shoppers going on everywhere, plus plenty of discounts and other fun things. I really hope there is enough publicity on it for loads of Manchester shoppers to come down, because it’s going to be a real event! Whether you’re a designer girl or high street there is something for everyone, and it’ll be worth it for the discounts and free glasses of prosecco alone (let alone the fun times that I’m sure will be had by all!). Plus the Vogue Editor and her team will be dotted about across the city to provide style advice and to make the event official!
I’ve even picked out some of my favourite activities below:
Outdoor ‘Vogue Eats’ pop-up market on King Street
BANK: Drinks and cupcakes served by Butlers in the Buff, plus special offers
Barbour: 20% discount plus a pick ‘n’ mix sweets stand
