the avenue manchester

So last month saw Manchester host this year’s Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, and boy did the city do us proud.

Being based at The Avenue, Spinningfields for the evening was fab. Each store had an offer, event or DJ and complimentary drinks…what a great excuse to shop! The Avenue giant letters were turned into a red carpet and photo-wall for the evening, where city-goers and fashionistas could be papped before heading off for exclusive in-store events and drinks at Grand Pacific.

I of course took my moment to shine (please ignore the fact that I was unable to button-up my new coat properly!)…

The fabulous Bitter Twisted set-up along The Avenue for the evening, bringing their prosecco, bellinis and Aperol Spritz to the party…Italian chic at its best (despite the crisp and cold Manchester weather).

There was a bit of celeb-spotting to be had, with guest appearances from Nicky Clarke and Matthew Williamson (who signed the giant ‘V’ of The Avenue letters) and in general there was just a great buzz across the city streets.

Manchester loves a good excuse to party and does it well! This was no exception.

No evening of style would be complete without the lady herself…Audrey Hepburn!


Did anyone else go along to Vogue’s Fashion Night Out?
