Vogue Fashion Night Out: Part One

Fancy late night shopping, with cocktails, fashion shows and free goodies and discount? I thought it sounded like fun so last Thursday I went to London where Vogue was holding its annual fashion night out and what fun!
At first I went to John Lewis on Oxford Street was treated to some champagne and a fashion show. I also had the privilege of doing some mini interviews with a few of the designers.
Loren Taylor is definitely one of the new designers to watch. From bespoke clutch bags to beautiful everyday handbags there are a few which I would absolutely love. My favourite is the red Immi bag which would be fabulous for the office. Not only are they gorgeous and practical but they’re also hand-made from the finest materials and only produced in small quantities. This means the bags are both well made and pretty unique!  Although they’re not Topshop prices (I’m going to have to save my pennies), they are surprisingly good value for the quality, designer name and the fact that they are handmade to order.

And the designer Loren is so sweet, I wish I had spent the time to speak to her a little longer. I wasn’t really expecting to be able to actually talk to any of the designers so I was really pleased when she agreed to answer a couple of my questions. (Although this isn’t a direct quote because I didn’t have a Dictaphone). 
My question was: “What is the inspiration behind your Autumn/Winter bags?
Loren told me about how she grew up in Africa, in the outdoors with a lot of exotic colours. When she travels she takes lots of pictures to keep as inspiration. She also told me how she takes inspiration from British fashion design and designers.

My second question was: “What is your favourite bag?”
Loren said her favourite bag is also the Immi bag but in white.
If you are interested in any of Loren’s bags they can be bought at www.lorentaylor.co.uk or from John Lewis.
I also managed to have a few words with Mischa Barton who seemed a little flustered, bless her!
I asked Mischa "what inspires you?" and she  told me what inspires her life was the charity work she does, in particular with children’s charities.
She supports some great charities including: http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/ and http://www.make-a-wish.org.uk/  Please support them if you can.
In terms of her bags she said she was inspired by Vintage bags that she has and sees in vintage fairs and also films but that she can get inspiration from absolutely everywhere.

  13. I think that what you published was actually very logical.
    However, think on this, what if you added a little information?

    I ain't saying your information isn't good, however suppose you
    added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "Vogue Fashion Night Out: Part One" is a little boring.
    You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create article titles to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've got to say.
    In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
