Get your keyboards at the ready people as come monday morning, Vogue.co.uk will be launching their first EVER online fashion week!! Now I’ve always been a wee bit sceptical about online shopping as a) you can’t try things on and b) hitting Libertys is my favourite ‘cultural’ activity. But after ogling all the deals, discounts and one-off pieces offered exclusively on the net during this digital fashion bonanza I’ve officially been converted. The event will run from 9am on 5th December (less than two days away, yay!) until 5pm on 9th December. There will be limited edition collections on sale and more fashtastic competitions than you can shake a Chanel handbag at not to mention exclusive blogs, Twitter Takeovers and videos from various fabulous designers and style icons.
Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, Anya Hindmarch, Mulberry and Jonathan Saunders (to name but a few) will all be taking part so I recommend you pull a sickie, stock up on snack food and spend all four days glued to your computer screen.
The event will not only be an excellent chance to get your hands on oodles of sartorial goodies but it’s also an opportunity to raise money for a good cause as retailers featured will all donate a percentage of every purchase made to charities chosen by YOU via Give as you live technology. Now if that’s not an excuse to shop until you, or rather your bank balance, drops then I just don’t know what is!
Love Ella. X
