VFS suggestions for the weekend.

Can you feel it? it is the Christmas festive time coming closer and closer. At the VFS office we are chatty chatty organizing everything for this weekend. We thought about sharing with you some of our ideas for the first Weekend of December.

Friday night:
What about a night market in Dalston? we just heard of this, and we think it suits for our plans tonight ... Launching on Friday 25th November and running every Friday night until Christmas - it’s East London’s first ever night time food market. Friday nights in Dalston will never be the same again. Running from 6pm until midnight the Long Table will offer an impressive hand picked selection of London’s finest street food, a bar and music. 

After spending the night around East, why not head West? Harrods, one of London´s most typical places to experience Christmas at the city. For the "Way in" Christmas event, David Longshaw will be in there drawing Maude in what ever customers have bought that day, 

from 10am - 8pm The event is taking place on Harrods Fourth Floor ‘Way In’ department.

Also Henry Holland will be serving on the tills, offering style advice as well as all sorts of other things going on including a chance to win a Harrods Hamper with one of David´s scarves in.

And last but not least our suggestion for Sunday: 
Why don´t you visit Boxpark? the world’s first pop-up mall!

BOXPARK strips and refits shipping containers to create unique, low cost, low risk, ‘box shops’. Put them together with a unique mix of international fashion, arts and lifestyle brands, galleries and caf├ęs and you’ve got the world’s first ‘pop-up’ mall – so named because its basic building blocks are inherently movable: they can, and will, literally pop up anywhere in the world!

So grab some friends, and come to Shoreditch to enjoy this new and exciting initiative!
Three different plans including a bit of fashion, food, shopping and the first pop-up mall! 
Enjoy your weekend!

VFS at the British Fashion Awards

The British Fashion Awards night about to begin. 

Victoria Beckham announced as winner by Marc Jacobs

On Monday night the VFS team donned our Georgia Hardinge dresses and Baartmans and Siegel suits and headed down to The British Fashion Awards to show our support for British Fashion. 

Each year the British Fashion Awards celebrates their creativity and success. British designers and creatives are renowned for their ability to set the global fashion agenda. 

Established in 1989, the British Fashion Awards was born from the British Fashion Council’s then five-year-old Designer of the Year Award. For more than 20 years, the British Fashion Awards has been celebrating the contributions of British designers, creatives and models to the international fashion scene.

The British Fashion Awards begins with a drinks reception followed by dinner and then the awards ceremony itself. For 2011, the Awards took place on Monday 28th November at the Savoy Hotel 

What a night! at the reception we had the chance to catch up with some of our Selection Panel judges, Susie Lau, Marios Schawb, David Koma, Jessica Bumpus, and so other friends Including the nice girls from Fashion Monitor, Hillary Alexander... some champagne and nibbles to share a night where all the key industry people was celebrating British Fashion.

The gala after the reception was a night full of surprises and big big announcement as big as the presenters, winners and guests. 

From our studio we congratulate Christopher Raeburn, and Mary Katrantzou. Being awarded as Emerging talent, in the Menswear and Womenswear categories. 

Have a look to the whole list of winners including: Sarah Burton as Designer of the Year,  Christopher Kane as new Establishment Award, introduced this year to recognise a particular movement in British fashion that is taking the industry by storm.  The inaugural winner is Christopher Kane whose visionary designs for his own label continue to lead trends globally, become must haves for any fashion credible shoot and essentials for all fashion collectors.  

Also, Paul Smith who was recognized as  Outstanding Achievement in Fashion, Victoria Beckham awarded as Designer Brand and Alexa Chung as British Style among others.

Congratulations to all of them and it was a pleasure to share the night with all of you, celebrating and supporting British Fashion.
