Vogue Fashion Night Out

Last week I hit Vogue’s FNO Manchester and what an amazing night it was. Filled with champagne and celebs, cocktails and candyfloss, the stores of Manchester where busier than ever!
Kicking off the event was Henry Holland and Daisy Lowe showcasing the fabulous FNO official tshirts.

These were available for £18 on the night and look simple and stylish! I mean who doesn’t want to wear ‘VOGUE’ across their chest?

I paired mine with a statement necklace, my ZARA kimono and high waisted black skinny jeans!

Plenty of celebs were DJing throughout Manchester stores including Eliza Doolittle who was partying by the MAC counter. I loved her super cute green bandeau top paired with high waisted jeans. We had a cute little moment when I fell into her DJ booth, a good giggle and hugged it out… what a sweety!

Kate Phelan, Creative Director of Topshop, hosted an excellent talk on styling tips for the season and was lovely company to sip champagne with! Though she had a bit of a moment when she forgot something rather important!

Those of you with a sweet tooth would be in your element! Vodka snow-cones came in a variety of flavors – I went with the classic vodka and cranberry!

The stalls were adorable retro boutique style with the staff wearing old school uniforms and boaters! Offering popcorn and cotton candy, it was a feast for the eyes and the waist line!

Sipping champagne at Mulberry, my boyfriend was slightly hungover and less than happy about being recruited as photographer!
